  1. Default Who is Mr/Ms Mead?

    So I was wandering around GM? this morning and noticed some numbers.

    Total posts: 4482
    Oskaar: 873 -> 19.5%
    Jmattioli: 534 -> 11.9%

    Combined these two are nearly 1/3 (31.4%) of GM?!!!

    I would just like to say thanks to these two, and everyone else at GM? for making this one of the most informative and friendliest places on the 'net.

    I would especially like to thank Vicky for giving us all a place to play.

    LOL Looks like I better find the rest of my life :-/

    My voice is only one of many and it's the diversity on the board and other posters who have different views and different processes that make the board great. I learn something new here every day and that's thanks to all the other folks out there like ScottS, McFeeley, Jmattioli, JoeM, Thirsty Viking, Vicky, Talon, JamesP, Pewter, Norskerwood and some of the commercial meadery posts when they breeze in as well.

    Bottom line is that one man's voice is an opinion, many voices are a forum. I'm glad you all are willing to share your knowledge with the rest of us.

    Special Thanks to Vicky for our playground!

    Sleep. . . bad Coffee . . . good!

    I remember when I was a programmer in the early eighties working at Hughes Aircraft that I'd get an idea on a project and want to keep after it I'd buy some Jolt Cola and mix in some Folger's Coffee Crystals and a No Doze or two. Got the shakes pretty bad a coupla times on that but always met project deadlines. LOL

    Cheers,

    Oskaar

    I've made mead with coffee sometime in the past, as I recall it was pretty good. I like honey in my coffee so to me it just made sense.

    I'll see if I can dig up the recipe somewhere, my old archives are all on tapes that have gone the way of the dodo.

    Way ahead of you there Talon. A couple of DVD burners are now the archive device for data, and RAID drives are the system backups. Tape was always a pain in the butt!
