As nostalgic as modem noise may be for me, I'll have to go with DSL.

GUI or command-line?

There can be no such choice. Many of today's GUIs come with controls that issue console-level commands. A GUI client to a middle-tier command-line driven system to a database is quite common.

But if I were to interpret your question as "GUI only" vs. "command line" only operations on everything I needed to do, I would grab my Wilson soccer ball and head for the nearest deserted island (with plenty of batteries, of course!).

Vibrato or tremolo?

Okay, this thread is after all titled "choices", so I chose GUI.

And rhythm section.

Drums or bass?

This is a hard one. I spent several years using both, and ultimately, I just gave up and got laser eye surgery instead.

Christianity or Islam?

Mmmm, chicken pesto pizza--halve a cheesy garlic round bread, slather on the pesto, add chicken pieces (cooked in butter and sherry) and top with feta. Pop in the oven (350 F) for about 20 minutes. True love.

Time or Newsweek? Or some other news mag?

On, but not in the bedroom! I'm too lazy to turn it off, but I have had a few sleepless nights because of an SMS late at night.

Cell phone on or off during parties?

I keep mine on in case of emergencies, but that's because no one ever phones me unless it's practically an emergency. So I'd generally recommend off or silent mode if it's a small intimate gathering. (If it's a loud party, then no one will be able to hear anything anyway...)

One word or a lengthy paragraph?

That depends on the circumstances. During meetings, one word often saves a lot of time. But sometimes a lengthy paragraph is good if details are needed.

Talk about stating the obvious


I'll stay with the cell phones for now: SMS or short call?
