Default Re: What's With The Pic?

I thought it was somewhat funny (even if hokey) and pretty unexpected coming from a company like Digi.

If they spent too much time making this forum look all nice and fancy, people would likely complain that they should be spending their time/resources on other things... like writing ADC into PTLE.

I think that if that image really bothers anyone, you're probably spending waaaay too much time here.

We have nothing against the duck as an animal or even a picture - the point is the letters don't spell or for that matter mean DUCK, that's what we are talking about, and for that matter a turtle is a relevant as a duck in this context!

Many of us call it the D.U.C not the 'DUCK' - so that even grinds some of us.

Hey I have a feeling this thread could run longer than any about ADC or track count.

Yeah, is it possible you simply need to get more of a life? I thought it was funny myself.

I suppose that could be true, but I have a dream job, a beautiful and loving partner, a fantastic home, amazing children, lots of money - I'm not sure what more I could want... please if anyone mentions God - whatever flavour!

Of course I also use Protools so in the 'get a life stakes' I'm not a hot contender - it was a question raised but get personal of you need to.

More power to you. I did have a little smiley there....

Ahh, but I believe you stated it: the one thing more in life you could want is a better avatar for the DUC, right?
