I knew it! Darn those executive types. Sounds much better like this (and put a smile on my face when I first heard it).
Apropos my experiments with SSD, I have given up for now and reassembled the machine. It’s a pity, but time and money aren’t infinite and other projects are calling.

As I recall it, the executives wanted something more "professional" .. but it took too long, so we shipped with the "cute" voice.
