    OEC Corp. to Buy Garritan Corp.

    Bristol, CT - In a surprise announcement today, OEC Corp of Bristol, CT
    announced it will purchase Garritan Corp of Orcas, WA. OEC Corp., a software
    development firm headed by David Sosnowski, will purchase intellectual property
    rights, product inventory and distribution, and trademark rights from Garritan Corp.
    Sosnowski declined to reveal the purchase price, but industry sources indicate
    the takeover is non-hostile. Gary Garritan, current head of Garritan Corp., will
    remain on staff as telephone support specialist.

    "We felt Gary was headed down the wrong path," said Sosnowski. "His emphasis on
    orchestral sound samples is a thing of the past. Our team of software specialists
    will gradually migrate the products to the head-banging, soul-crunching, gut-
    wrenching synthetic sounds that are at the heart of today's music."

    The acquisition of Garritan Corp. by OEC Corp. is reportedly to be completed by
    December 21, 2012. Negotiations are also rumored to be underway with a German
    firm to sub-contract support and replace the aging ARIA player.

    Gary Garritan was unavailable for comment.

    I've heard the acquisition will occur much earlier.

    I just consulted my Mayan calendar. On the edges of the calendar is a glyph that says OEC will be dissolved on/by the 22nd.

    Any culture that can come up with zero and use a mixture of base 18 and base 20 at the same time, had to know what they were doing.

    Besides, I heard David was lost somewhere in the wilderness.
