Thanks For The Beer! (Some Assembly Required)
« on: October 05, 2008, 04:27:07 pm »
So I decided to get into beer brewing as a hobby. I went to purchase my first round of equipment and supplies, and the vendor's website presented me with the paypal option! I totally forgot about having a paypal account, as it pretty much only gets used to accept donations here. Turns out, over the past few years, I've collected just enough to buy everything I had on my order! So that's pretty much like free beer... just some assembly required.

In all seriousness though, thanks to those of you that have donated over the years... you now know that funding is gonna get your friendly neighborhood sysadmin a little bit drunker. :-P

Hahah sounds like a fun hobby. I actually know a kid who's got a small distillery in his dorm room (it's kinda neat).

I know this sounds totally lame, but I really wish I could afford to donate to Xepher.net. Ass-kissing aside, I do love this forum. :D

Have fun with your brewin' ;)

Bwaha! That's great!

One of the things I'm going to do after I get a job is donate... because these forums/hosting have done a lot for me. <3 <3

Hey, just so we're clear... this isn't a plea for more donations. Not in the slightest. I have a real job now with a really decent paycheck, so the cost of bandwidth for this place barely shows up on the financial radar now. Still I appreciate the sentiment, and glad ya'll are getting something useful out of all this.

You know, I actually thought about that... shipping a sixpack to anyone who had donated or something. Problem is, there's all these pesky federal regulations about the shipment of alcohol. That, and the cost of shipping is probably more than the beer. I admit I haven't looked into that deeply though, so if you've got a good way to do it, I'm all for it.

This is making me wish I liked any sort of alcohol. D:
