    I get a blank page from that link. But looking at your profile, I'd guess you're from Canada.

    PS: I note that removing the 's' from 'https' allows a connection. I don't know - Taiwan?

    Thanks. I have removed it.

    (Later) It still didn't work. Then I put it back in and it worked. I don't understand this, but at least we can hear the recording now.

    Sorry for the recording issue and thanks for resolving it! I'm not Taiwan, by the way!

    Finland? I don't know, I can't really place your accent. I'd guess that you're from a European country. I'm assuming you're lying about being from Canada.

    Re: Guess where I'm from!

    At times you sound as if you were from one place, and a second later, I think, "no no no..."
    So, my guess is that you are from Eastern Europe-maybe Lithuania?

    Re: Guess where I'm from!

    1. I doubt you are a Native AmE Speaker!
    2. I doubt your Current Location is Canada!
    3. I know you are not from Boston!
    4. Frankly, if you are going to try and deceive us with your profile, I don't really care where you come from!

    Cheers,
    A4
