Still think you should get at least one Tequilla :P

bit OT but I went on the Penderyn master class tour... free bar at the end of the tour.
It was quite good. Then a walk up the hill to a country pub for some proper pub grub & a few ales.
Then watched Wales v South Africa in a pub back in my home town. What a great day & night we had.

This was the sh*t, and I'll be looking to do it again this year.

I made 3 piles with the little bottles



Less than 10 ended up in a reject pile.

"Worth another try" ended up with the lions share.

And the really good ones, I ended up getting 5/6 full sized bottles of whisky :lol:



For 2017 it'll likely be 50% of the same as last year, and 50% all new 8) Japan wasn't well represented last year, currently Hakushu 12 & Yamazaki 12 are in stock as drams, hopefully this remains the case in a few months.

Big news in the bitcoin world today. An arrest has been made in relation to the theft of Bitcoins from MTGox. It seems the suspect is strongly linked to the Russian bitcoin exchange BTC-e, which has been "down" for a few days.

Some suggestions are that outright BTC-e hacked MtGox. Never a dull moment in crypto.

Test drove a Porsche Cayman S last weekend, got another one lined up for this weekend. Feeling good about this one, it's better value than the last one due to lower mileage and many more optional extras.

2010
15,600 miles
987 Gen 2 model
3.4 litre flat 6
7 speed PDK gearbox

Key Optional Extras :-
Flappy paddle steering wheel
LSD
Porsche Active Suspension Management
Sports Chrono Plus
Sports Exhaust
BOSE Sound System

Porsche approved from Porsche Silverstone, 2 year Porsche warranty and European breakdown cover.

Pretty excited right now. Will post up pics if I go through and buy it. Here is a video they did for me in the meantime - https://video.citnow.com/vtGC-YhXF1n

It is.. a few reasons for choosing it..

1. Really easy to setup VPN and doesn't require VPN licencing (many do).
2. Supports LAN DNS, so I can use my server over VPN via name rather than IP (Most don't and I don't need to host my own DNS)
3. Supports failover (Supports two Ethernet and 2 USB dongles) - I'm currently running Virgin Cable and fail over to a 3G dongle. (I just need enough bandwidth to keep my home automation and security connected, and I had the 3G USB dongle sat around, otherwise I would have opted for 4G)
4. Supports DynDns and other services.
5. Is absolutely rock solid and has never needed a reboot.
6. Can do VLANs and various bandwidth management etc, although I haven't had a need to play with this yet.

Noticed that bitcoin has taken a bit of  tumble over last couple of days. Down about 25% to 1500£.
 Worth an investment or is it likely to keep sliding?

It was definitely worth an investment, already back up over £1,800. But the next drop is about to start, not sure how big, but this bounce was so hard and so fast I fear it's a bull trap.
