    Hallo Nancy!

    In the meantime, I did lift one to Guy Fawkes... somewhat in your
    honor... ;)

    Thank you. That works for me. :-)

    The bottle was just sitting there, and I'd had a rough evening
    anyway...

    You should have had two then ... or did you?

    You'll have it working properly eventually... :)

    I am stuck on something and can't for the life of me figure it out. :::sigh:::
    I hate when this happens.

    Works well enough for the purpose... :)

    Better today but I want to translate it for the EuroPoint. Stay tuned.

    Hallo Nancy!

    Nah, just the one... it was sufficient.... :)

    I'll take your word on it. Speaking for myself I am planning to make up for lost time on the next cybertoast. Two will be the correct amount. :-)

    I am not sure what happened but the answer came to me while having coffee with the neighbour and it turned out to be the right idea. Very simple solution too
    which I was suspecting it probably was. Anyhow I posted a message from there to this echoarea.

    If "beste" is supposed to be Dutch. It should be "best" in this context. ;)

    Sounds like a plan. I see we don't have too much longer to wait.

    Do you have plans yet for which scotch you'll be using....?

    Probably the usual 12 year old Glenlivet but I haven't been yet so it could change at the last minute.

    And it slipped in totally unnoticed and unremarkable, so clearly
    passed the test, eh...? :)

    The Dutch one got a seal of approval but yet to see anything back about the Spanish version. That one was sent from the raspberry pi. From this angle it looks like a winner. Pure 64 bit too. Mind you so is this and has been since forever.

    If it works, rip it apart and find out why!

    If it ain't broke you aren't trying hard enough.

    Nope, not too much longer.... less than two months now... :)

    Depends on what special deals there might be, eh...? I'll be using the Macallan 12 I got last year... still have plenty of that.... :)

    Hey Nancy!

    Depends on what special deals there might be, eh...?

    Either that or what happens to be available. I waited too long a couple years ago and had to "settle" for a 12 year old Glenfiddich. :::sigh:::

    The problem this year is that funds are short at the moment and there are a few
    things I want to do that cost around the same as a good 12 year old so I'll have to risk it. However I am sure something decent for the occasion will be available.

    And has this one also been sent from the raspberry pi...?

    No. It was the same one as this one and judging by the tearline it is an eight
    core intel jobber I use for experimenting and was hosting "Little Mikey's Brain" which used to be the fidonet node. As you can see now it is now part of
    the EuroPoint triad. I believe I have them all in sync now. The Dutch one is the actual host of the EuroPoint and will show the Dutch version of the cybertoast tagline when responding or posting to you. This one has LANG=en_CA.utf8 which is the Canadian version of English. I doubt anyone would
    notice the difference between this and en_US.utf8. ;-)

    I saw that it was Mikey's Brain

    Right. I've corrected that now as shown below. Also I am experimenting with a
    beta version of bash whereas the other two are the latest stable version.

    I don't think it's broke, but I'm trying to fix it anyway.

    That is known as standard operating procedure here. Mind you there are always something that needs fixing but usually not broken as such.

    Very true. Hopefully this time - 40 days from now - will be better. We'll know soon enough.

    I'll probably have to leave it until a few days before as money is very tight this time around. I have faith that it'll all work out.
