Forum posting 2/2005 from someone trying to decide if to get a .com or get married:

So the question is: Wife or .com (with 960/962 combo)?
I guess I gotta weigh the pros and cons:

1. Can push their buttons easily
2. Nice user interface
3. LFO on the .com is great; LFO on the wife - downright fun!
4. Both make an awful lot of noise
5. Can shut the .com off
6. .com can be turned on much easier than wife
7. .com never gets a headache
8. "Ring" modulator is much more expensive for the wife
9. Will probably pay more attention to the .com than the wife
10. Can get mercifully pounded while playing .com at 1 a.m.,
will get mercilessly pounded by wife for playing .com at 1 a.m.
11. Expanding .com - good. Expanding wife - bad.
12. It's okay to come home to find best friend on the .com

Well, that settles it. I guess I'll just have to get both. I wonder if I can talk my future wife into registering at Roger may not go for it, but I bet if I appealed to Margo...

From Bill
    As a nightclub owner, I hired a pianist and a drummer to entertain my customers. After several performances, I discovered that the drummer had walked away with some of my valuables. I notified police, who arrested him.

    Desperate for another drummer, I called a friend who knew some musicians. "What happened to the drummer you had?" he asked me.

    "I had him arrested," I replied. We said good-bye and hung up.

    A few minutes later my friend called back and asked, "How badly did he play?"
