Don’t worry Consul, I’m still here. Since getting back from my vacation, which feels like a lifetime ago (albeit a short one), things have been crazy so although I’ve been drinking I’ve been writing code late into the night. My great beer diet seems to be failing and now I’m a fat bastard again. Maybe I’m not drinking enough beer. Talking of beer I had a tasty local beer this week which I will get more of. It’s from the Real Ale Brewing Company: Firemans #4 Blonde Ale. Nice session beer that easily could supplant my regular Shiner Bock. It’s a great way to beat the heat of Texas!
