Sounds samples for Sally

Well, this is what happened during the last few days: Sally asked Teoh and me
if we have sound samples of our conlangs. Teoh replied that he unfortunately
doesn't have a microphone, and although I didn't reply directly, I had the same
problem. Then Sally wrote: "Well, go out and steal one!"
Now, I am not much of a thief. Nevertheless, that sentence made me think of
something. In many cases, when I need something, the thought doesn't even occur
to me that I could actually go out and buy it. In this case however I decided
to go to a shop and buy a mike.
Not that I actually bought one: on the last moment, I remembered that I have
such a thing for my walkman; I tried it on the computer, and it worked!
So, I started to record some stuff. The quality is far from ideal, but enough
to give an impression.
