    Default Bruce's Voice?

    I'm wondering if that is Bruce's voice that does the introduction on the home page when you click on the little green arrow?

    LOL! You guys are so funny! Yes, I am afraid that is my voice. You have to be logged-out of the forum to see the 'little green arrow' and play the welcome to OrchidTalk message. It is for our visitors and guests. It has only been there for about 6 months - heheheh....(What are you doing logged-out of the forum, Clint?...heheh)

    My plan was to find a way to make the player play a random welcome and then have a contest to get members from all over the world to record the message. I would then upload it and guest/ visitors would hear different voices welcoming them to our global community. I still have it on my to-do list. I have been working on a lot of behind the scenes features and updates since the last big software update. Lots of little issues here and there.

    Clint, I hope you liked the message and the sound of my voice. I know I must sound so southern, but I come by it honestly. I grew up in deep East Texas and went to school in Oklahoma and Virginia and now live in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas.

    Not too Southern..just like 90% of the people I grew up around. I have Canadian friends that laugh at me sometimes, and I think I'm pretty Midwestern sounding.

    You sound just exactly as I imagined you would, Bruce
