    Could we have an octet that's not a thematic and not a longhaul, please? Either an couple of open class octets (those always fill up quickly) or a batch of banded octets. I'm having octet withdrawal over here!

    As an experiment, could you toss in a 1/0 open class octet, just to see how much we like 'em?

    Thanks much,
    Steve

    Dear Subscriber,

    NO!

    You'll take the Quartets, AND LIKE THEM!

    Oh, but, sir, an octet is twice the fun of a quartet! Surely you could arrange for an octet...or perhaps a lovely bowl of gruel...

    Sincerely,

    No harm done. I wasn't fooled for a minute. No, really, I wasn't, hey where ya goin'?

    Oh, and about the octets...um, hello?

    Is there anything so sweet as a freshly filled octet, trembling there, just waiting to start. Eight brave souls thinking: maybe this time I'll do everything just right and that stupid sandbagger guy that always beats me isn't even in this one...
