Codename pick of the week: O’Hare
One from the codename vault (courtesy of Mr. Thurrott). O’Hare was the codename for IE 1.0. Why? Because it could get you to any destination from Chicago (which was the codename for Win 95)
Beer pick of the week: Foley Brothers Brewing Longbeards Oatmeal Stout
No, I am not an owner at Foley Brothers Brewing (sadly). But I did get to try their English-style oatmeal stout called Longbeards Oatmeal Stout. And it’s smooth, easy to drink and lightly chocolately. Not too heavy for summer, either. Those Vermonters have done a nice job with this one.
