Well, I finally got a 'pat on the back'. Dick Sequerra called me today and I explained my situation here, with him. He then went into the difference between solid state and tubes in respect to 'field theory'. And people here think that I am esoteric!

Very interesting, but may we also know what different reason?
(Not an esoteric one, I suppose )

I used it to create two separate drive voltages from opposite power supplies. DUH!

I see Amstel name on the picture... I liked it in South Africa, so when once spotted it here, ordered... but it tasted like...

May be it is better that an alcohol does not taste good here. The April 1 2008 I decided to give up it's usage completely. And do you know what I've found? The life is better without it.

No wonder, you are so difficult. Tried AA yet? Makes you a better person, when you are sober.

Can't speak for Dutch beers, but German beers are pasturised before export, which certainly alters/destroys the flavour. When sold locally, they are not pasturised.

Shipping is a stressful process, especially when it's done without temperature control (far too common).

Hoppe is excellent, but there's a place I like even better, Gollem. I've gotten quite polluted there. I've been promised that Dallas contains a similarly stupendous beer spot- we'll see...

Hi Stuart,

Funny you also know that place. Indeed, nice pub and over 200 different brands of beer. See: www.cafegollem.nl
Nevertheless I prefer Hoppe, mainly because it's frequented by my friends and, equally important, served by skilled, friendly and polite bartenders.

edit: I almost forgot a very important thing: no music! (at least, opposed to 'zit' Hoppe, not in 'sta' Hoppe)


Edmond.

I think that's a myth. There is plenty of artisanal European beer available here exactly as is is in Europe. Reefer shipping has totally changed the landscape. I find many have aquired the "world taste of industrial consistency" on their own even in their place of origin.
