Bah you bloody Washingtoners sending more of your fricken freezing weather down into sunny beach state.

So far it seems to be going along good, those that stick around seem to fit in well enough.

I lose track of all those who introduce themselves and then seem to fall off the face of the earth.
It's not whether the glass is half empty or half full, it's whether you are pouring or drinking.

In all honesty, Hiram. You really should be quite proud of yourself as you've brought together a wonderful group of folks outside of the common thread (i.e. other absinthe related internet sites etc.).

I, for one, feel very fortunate to have found your little world. This is a GREAT WS and is certainly above what I've seen out there! Kudos to you, Sir! :cheers:

Once I figure out how to insert the emoticons, of course. :D

My employee number starts with 666 and it's fascinating to see how some people I work with freak out when they see that.

Congratulations.... and what MPC said.

Well, with the advent of whatever drama helped drive away a few of who I used to call the "good ol boy" club, I'd say the membership here is essentially perfect.

Hasn't been much drama on here in months (well, not like what it used to get up to at times) and the people on here are honestly committed more to absinthe than causing issues.

So I'd say, joke or not, dooo eeetttttt.

At my last job, we wrote a management tool, and the password we set to get into it with was "666"... When both my partner and I went off to another group, it fell onto somebody else to run the app... we had to come back in and manually change the password because the guy who took over refused to type that in. :->
