    So I got a little frustrated in the "video chat" sector of the forums earlier as .. everyone was on mic but for someone reason mine wasn't working.

    Someone wanted to know if I had an accent.. I don't think so! But you make the decision LOL

    Here's a bit of me :)

    PS. Yes I stumble on the words a few times.. no need to bring that to attention :p

    Didn't want to work for me either. The thing is, we all have accents. If I go to Chicago, I'm told I have a St Louis accent and if I run into someone I can pick out a New York, Boston, Minnisota, Canadian accents, Southern accents are easy and annoying to me. Love Aussie and British accents. So we all have one to some extent. If they are from a country other than yours, or even a different region, yes you'll have an accent.

    My browser says the link is forbidden, lol. Since you're from new Zealand Im guessing you have an accent. I think as long as your around people that don't live near you. You automatically have an accent. I go in and out of Irish and Canadian. Yea, apparently there is a Canadian accent.

    Well, you do have an accent but this french guy likes your voice and accent, you're not hard to understand.
    You won't need to read that book to get my attention.

    He he. I'm Norwegian, and I suspect that the average American would say that your accent is stronger than mine:). Not that I know for sure. It's very charming though (I couldn't place it before you mentioned NZ). Actually, it is particularly noticeable when you say the word "accent":lol. No kidding!
