Nothing like upgrading your production VMWare infrastructure at 4PM and hoping nothing goes wrong...
Someone keep your fingers crossed for me.

EDIT: That went as well as it could have! woooot!

It's VMWare...what could happen? :)

Seriously though, fingers crossed and such.

The real advantage with VMWare is that all its problems are only virtual....

AHAHAHA.

I'll be here all week. Thanks.

The first time I heard of that I really thought the person said "Instant Rim Job dot com." I believe I spit my tea out and walked away shaking my head.

Is the 120 only saved for "special" knock you on your ass occasions?

There very much is and they only sell it as a 4-pack.

I'm interested in trying it, but I'd be afraid it would go to waste. Maybe I'll pick up a 4-pack and bring it to Ry's new place as a house-warming present. This way if I don't like it I can abandon the other three and I know they won't go unloved.

That would be tragic. *nods vigorously*

I've never seen it sold in packs actually. the 90 minute is sold in 4 packs I think, the 120 singly.

You are right I was thinking of the 90 which is in the 4 packs and the 120 on it's own.

Have you ever had Midas Touch Golden Elixir? Reading about it on their website it sounds fantastic.

It seems alike a lot of the information on their website is old as they all have 2007 release dates.

yeah, they rarely keep their site updated.
Midas Touch is definitely an interesting brew, I can never quite decide what I think of it. Lots going on with that one, and definitely worth a try if you've never had it.

Is there a place you know of in the area that sells it?

I made beer and mead for years so it sounds very interesting and well worth a try.

downtown wine and spirits in Davis has it sometimes, as well as the one in porter square (I think).

Oh my yes.
Goes for about $7-10 per 12oz bottle, and worth every penny (occasionally).

120 IBU might be a bit too bitter for me. I tend to be more of a sweeter drink fan, but I'm working on expanding my horizons.

Well it's also 20% abv, so you don't notice the bitter so much... ^_^

agreed. also, if you can find a 120 that's been aged, it's a lot less bitter. last summer i had a 1 year old bottle of 120 at the brewpub in rehobeth that was much sweeter than i expected. with it's high alcohol content, it was almost more like a liqueur.

this reminds me i need to raid the case of things i've had aging in my closet...

I love it when people want to port new changes late in the day.

My boss refuses to let anything go live after 4:30. He's been proven right many times. ;-)
