I heard about The Importance of Being Ernest, listened to some of it and was rather impressed. The whole project is great - I shall definitely be taking Pride and Prejudice around on my MP3 player now.

I'm also looking forward to trying out doing some reading. Hopefully I can get a decent setup and help with this really rather marvellous project.

Welcome Matt! I sooooooo love the Brittish accent. I hope you do some readings for us! You can start by looking into the weekly poetry or short works. it gives you a good oppotunity to test your recording setup. :)

OH I just saw that you found it! We all love accents so no problem with doing any works with a different accent then the author's :)

Have fun!

Welcome, welcome.

Looking forward to hearing your work.

Hey, what are you studying for your Ph.D.?

Hello KATWAL, I'm doing Computer Science. Please don't ask me to elaborate, as it's a bit tricky to explain unless you already have a background in functional programming and type theory.

Are you kidding??? Ph.D. level work in the area of Computer Science. :?

I just hate when my ignorance is waving like a red flag, therefore I won't ask a single question. :)

Lots of people react like that... I wonder, do people do that to PhD Chemists as well?

Hey, people call us computer geeks, who they run to when their computers don't work, computer doctors anyway. So, why not a CS Ph.D.?

Well I certainly do seem to spend a lot of time fixing other people's computers!
