Slug, obviously you don't know that very ancient saying: "two posts don't make a topic, specialy when it's about beer". :D

And I have to inform you that I'm aware of the world's most well kept secret. Yes... the plan for Aussies to conquer the world. Of course I'm talking about sending Foster's OS.

(opening a bottle of Hahn Premium)

Cheers mate! :D

Hey Kaan.... Martin clearly stated this forum could have a topic about beer. "Forum for things that doesn't really have anything to do with hMailServer. Such as php.ini, beer, etc etc. " :D

Stay happy!

Yes it have always been Australia's plan to conquer the world, but we seem to have forgotten to tell anyone about it. :lol: :lol:

Dude I know.. That was a joke, let me clarify :) Since you said u looked for beer but couldn't find, I ment you are not looking at the correct place u should ask shops or something in order to be able to drink the real one for sure..

otherwise I enjoy more this topic since I can't discuss about any e-mail related stuff deeply :)

It's a 'widget' and allows it to become a draught stout but from a can. ;)

Three friends have been going to camp together
to have fun and to play cards the whole days.
On the next morning the first of them went to
the supermarket to supply all with food.
He came back with a crate of beer and one bread.
The other two friends stared to the bread...
.. until one of the both was saying:
"Oh, he also thought of the birds!" :-)

I'm German, so I like the German beer, but nevertheless
Martin is absolutely right:
There is no better beer in the world than some
sorts of Czech Beer (f.e. "Plzner Urquell")

Kaan.... please lets keep this that i'm going to say just between you and me. I'm not much of a beer person aswell. I'm more a wine guy. Portugal is a fab wine country so I have a very good colection of Portuguese wines (the only non- Portuguese is a case of Australian Syrah that a friend sent me). Anyway.... I've been learning a lot with this topic.

Yeah man; I know more about wine too but I'm not a wine fan neither :(
Actually once I drank a 75 years old wine, since then I can't drink any other...
Hehe u know what I found an african wine called "Gold Kaan" :D so funny but I didn't taste that yet :) they were selling it with a cd attached, so silly :D

I think it's an injustice there's a "Gold Kaan" wine and no-one ever thought about a "Gold Xprex" one (which makes me think I should change my nick).

btw.... I tried that Syrah wine and it's not bad at all.

Hey! What is happening here?! How come that all of a sudden I was promoted from a "New user" to a "Normal user"?

(opening a can of Guiness with a strange plastic ball inside of it).... hmmmmm..... It must has been my overwhelming personality. :D

Be careful with those plastic balls, I have been told they are full of a strange swamp gas. This gas when released and inhaled turns you from a new user to a normal user.

If you don't believe me check out Dooms rating... senior user with the most post count ..

Dooms addiction to the plastic ball is well documented on these forums....

Leave whilst you still can. :P

Kaan: I really can't tell which is better.

But now I'm worried.... deep inside I knew my promotion had nothing to do with my deep knowledge of how things work in the IT world or my brilliant personality ( I was hoping, though), but I have to confess that never crossed my mind that what is called in very closed and secret circles "The plastic ball effect" was the reason.

I have to thank Slug for opening my eyes to this reality with irrefutable evidences. If he didn't warn me in due time, one day I would wake up and realize that I was.... hmmmm.... what's the word?..... oh..got it! .... that I was Doomed.

Slug: Yep. I believe it's from South Australia. Checked the label of the last bottle. It's from Langhorne Creek.

I feel it's my obligation to keep you all informed about the latest developments on 2 issues previously discussed on this topic. They must be the 2 major threats to world peace. Obviously, as you may have guessed, I'm talking about:

1- The beer widget
2- The Australian plan to conquer the world.

Concerning the first one, ckeck this:

I'm speechless!

Concerning the second issue, I'm still in shock by this news release:

"Fosters Brewery in Australia announced yesterday that they are entering into a partnership with the University of Queensland to develop a microbial fuel cell powered entirely by beer waste."

(ref:http://www.greenoptions.com/2007/05/04/ ... ns_on_beer)

Right. First they send Fosters OS . Now they are also trying to find a way to get rid of that stuff waste.

Guinness is unusual in that it's made from burnt malted barley (as opposed to ordinary malted barley, maize, or various other unmentionable things). I suppose that some Irishman accidently burnt the stuff, then pretended that he meant to, and persuaded other Irishmen to drink it. Somehow, it caught on.

Most beers are pressurised with CO2 (Carbon Dioxide, the famous Greenhouse Gas). Guinness is unique, however in that it's pressurised with Nitrogen (N2). That widget contains Nitrogen in a capsule that breaks when the outside pressure is reduced by opening the can. Never knew it was made of plastic, though.
