As we all talk to ourselves, it does also make sense to talk to your PC - no swearing though, tutting or sighing !!!

I'm very interested in trying this out for one of my pen-names to see what happens. A couple of interesting nights ahead I think

Tim has been using it for a few months, ALWAYS with the MP3's playing LOUDLY on his computer, me walking in and yelling at him to turn down that racket, etc. It never picks up any of that.

He uses a headset with mic and earphones, so maybe his close proximity to the mic is why it doesn't pick up outside sounds?

I'm thinking of putting it on my laptop. It has the built-in mic, so that may be less likely to filter out noise. It's all a grand experiment.

It was tried for me when I was at work, but it kept picking up too much extraneous sound ... mind you it was only a trial to see if it could help me ! needless to say it couldn't ....

I hope nobody here wants to be Ernest.

But if for some reason someone wants to be Ernest, we can make a new movie.

Now if Bob says his name is now Mary, no one would know any different - readerships can remain their loyal fan base without worrying about author A jumping the shark or becoming author B or selling out or any of the other fun and exciting things kids on the internet think of these days =)

Moe - I say go for it if you want to try and sell something, why not - i mean whats the worst thing that could happen
Nora Roberts writes romance. But she also has her In Death series which she writes as J. D. Robb. We do know it's Nora who writes it. And that's fine. That's actually a good thing. It means if you get a Nora Roberts book, you'll get romance and if you get J. D. Robb, you'll get murder mysteries with a little romance tossed in.

Probably a Gen3 so the screen can mysteriously break and he can go on all kinds of wild adventures trying to contact someone at Bookeen to get it fixed and then when they tell him he broke it and has to pay, he'll have more wacky adventures trying to get Bookeen to fess up that it's a flaw in the Gen3 and not his fault.

3 more weeks....

Ernest: Bookeen has not gotten back to me about the broken Gen3. I'll have to have some wild wacky adventures trying to get someone to respond to my emails.

Well I just tried out Macspeech Dictate It's so awful I can't even begin to tell you. I can type at 70-100wpm, using this software I might get 5wmp (and three of them wrong).
