I’ve been listening to the Once podcast since early season one. It’s just taken me awhile to get around to coming to the website and joing in the conversation. I’m looking forward to the discussion and fun in what I think is one of the top OUAT podcasts on air.
As for me, personally? Well, I’m Antonio’s dad and Anthea’s husband, first. When that isn’t filling my time, I’m either a software engineer or a cardiovascular scientist. In fact, I’ve got first hand experience with Dr. Whale’s story. I’m also a fairly competent sound engineer by night/weekend.
On my “down time,” I’ve got a passion for SciFi and Fantasy – be it books, TV or movie. There is that work in pro audio I mentioned. I also have a love for Christian apologetics. Recently, I’ve managed to combine all this into a blog at http://www.TheChristianGeek.net thanks to the encouragement of several friends.
From there, probably the best way to learn about me is to ask or watch what I post in the discussions.
Thanks and God bless,

Thanks! It’s been something I’ve been wanting to get running for over a year, but there’s been this little thing called “life” that kept getting in the way.
What’s going to be hard for me, is the forums here are such a temptation to start commenting in as soon as the episode airs. Except that I want to get my OUAT review written – unbiased – before engaging in the forums. It’s habit I picked up when I was doing my Thoughts From the Fringe segment for Fringecasting. It’s going to be a lot harder here — this group just looks like too much fun! 😀February 11, 2013 at 8:08 pm #172574
Hi RaulYbarra! What is sound engineering, if you don’t mind me asking?
Sure. Some purists may quibble, but it’s an alternative name for a soundman. More specifically, if you have the nerve to call yourself a sound engineer you have a good deal more knowledge than the dude who just pushed the button to turn on a channel. You understand things like gain structure, reverb times, speaker modes, phase interactions, and so forth. They’re more likely to understand the physics and (sometimes complex) math of sound recording/reinforcement.
While a lot of schools and churches may pop any interested high school geek or guitar player in front of the mixer, a proper sound engineer is who you want when you are dropping your money in a recording studio for that hot demo CD you want to cut. 🙂
Hmmm… I think you may have just given me a topic for one of my blog posts. Right after I finish the one on gain structure that I’m writing now…February 12, 2013 at 11:23 pm #172823MyrilParticipant
Welcome to the forums! 😀
Sound engineering – cool! I mean, software engineer or a cardiovascular scientist sounds interesting as well (and an interesting combination of knowledge), and being a parent is quite sure the biggest project in one’s life, but sound engineering is the cool part 😉 And you’re so right about it being more than pushing some buttons.

I just had to comment on your little quote. I am a “geek” of the old school starting in 1969 and grew along as IT capabilities progressed to what it is today. I have always loved that joke because it drives people nuts. Especially the young geeks who never saw or heard of a punch card or assembler. 😆
As you and I know, all computers boil down to 0’s and 1’s. :ugeek:
