I'm happy to fill the empty mod position left by Diki xD

Probably number 2, it sounded crisper. Also i didnt know programmers had nice voices.

Thanks, guys. I'll see what else I can do to improve the quality. I might need a boom and a shock mount :/
Also i didnt know programmers had nice voices.
and I still can't translate sheet music into actual notes xD
thanks for the compliment, though. Means all those voice lessons I took as a kid didn't go to waste.
soo.. Uhh... Male vocalist for hire?
... No? Okay. No moneys for me :(

We don't all sound like basement-dwelling mouthbreathers.
I was going to record myself saying that in a stereotypical nerd voice but my mic is such a piece of shit that quality turned out so poor that it wasn't worth it, so let's just pretend that I did. I sure am a funny guy!

Does this do it for you? :P
Oh, i'm gonna have a lot of fun with soundcloud.
Oh fine. I'll record with my bad mic and ridiculous background noise.
I also fucked up my first attempt and you can listen to that one too!
Now I await your apology. >:(
And if you're feeling really adventerous you can look at my Soundcloud profile to listen to me reading "Scrotie McBoogerBalls" as Arnnie, John Lennon, and the lead singer from Cannibal Corpse. The CC one was fucking hard and I completely broke my composure because of how ridiculous it was.

Ahh, I was going for the slightly-more-current "I AM THE DUNGEON MASTER!" feel, and you were going for the nostalgic 80's sit-com nerd feel.
Now I await your apology. >:(
You are the brave and adventurous king of dungeons, sir :P
I wasn't going for any specific style. That's just the only nerd voice that I've practised. I banged mine out really quickly too. Could have done a better job if I warmed my voice up and did it while standing, but I'm feeling especially lazy from my workout today, so fuck that. :)

I have one voice i'm actually okay at, and that's the whole "In a world..." voice. I'm pretty sure EVERYONE'S good at that one, though xD
I also have a really horrible English accent that I break out every now and then.
That super baritone movie trailer voice? I can't make my voice sound "heavy" enough to do that justice. I can do really low guttural vocals though (as you can tell from my Cannibal Corpse clip). :)

Every time I try an English or Irish accent I just end up doing my Scottish accent. Half of my family was born in Scotland so I find that accent super easy (specifically the accent heard near Glasgow or Greenock), but holy crap English and Irish accents are hard.
And here's Sean Connery telling you to go fuck yourself. Doing Connery's voice is more fun than it should be.

If you cut my hair and quint really hard, Diki and I kinda look the same. Sorta. Ish.
Of course, there's always the possibility of one of us being shorter than the other.
I'm 6'1" - what about you, Diki?

I lied! I'm posting another to clear my name as a mouthbreather (albeit I recorded this three months ago). It's my Cannibal Corpse one that I mentioned earlier where I read The Poop That Took a Pee. You'll probably need to read along to understand me because just like the actual singer I am completely unintelligible.
Don't try this at home, folks. You can hurt your throat if you do it wrong. :)

I'm 5'6" so yeah... possibility indeed.
Well I was bored, so I profiled two projects with Scout, one uses nape and the other is an rpg. The nape one has tons of memory allocations and not as many deallocations and consistently runs at 60fps, while the rpg's alloc'd and dealloc'd objects are equal yet it has trouble keeping up at 30fps (lots of z-sorting and rendering) when the dudes move. I don't think the as3isolib library is as optimized as it could be (there was a version 2 in the works, but he's since put it on permanent hiatus), so I miiight have to bring starling into the picture. And I'm surely not touching nape's innards, so there's not much to do for that one.
Slightly more productive than recording my voice
I've had my first week of working at a real company. I super duper like it, very focused the whole day, and when I leave, I only think about things I want to. Basically, there's a really solid work/free-time boundary which I really like compared to freelance.
Right now I'm mulling over on how to get livecoding working in a simple way. Some people did it, that Code Orchestra IDE, but that's not going to be free, so I think it would be interesting in figuring out a way to get it working and release an open-source variant.
(I'm just doing it for fun in the end.)
