I wish that it was that close Monday, but try closer 1200km as the crow flies (a 40min drive north gets me into Queensland), though being 1km above sea level does keep things a lot cooler around here.

Cheers.

G'morning everyone, from a warm and sunny day in the highlands down under.

Well after my little test with an Acer Aspire and Mint 18.2 Cinnamon a fortnight ago, I decided to put the OS onto 2 Brand Name desktops (another Acer & a HP) and a Toshiba laptop (that have been gathering dust and taking up space in the shed, but I'm not going to throw perfectly good hardware away either) that all had Win Vista on them over the weekend (I've never seen M$ try and kill 1 of their old OS's off so quickly, but they must need the money).

I must say that I'm impressed this time with how hassle free Linux installed on all of them and I didn't have to go searching for any missing drivers. I'm also impressed in the changes they've made to the way of updating the OS and installing/removing apps, so very much better than how it was when I tried their latest and greatest offering 5-6yrs back. In fact people may actually get to like this OS and I've set these up to do what the usual person around here needs to do, now to find some guinea pigs (in fact I should have 1 for the laptop already as her laptop is also a Vista job to and another good candidate for the new OS without having to pay for a Win10 license).

Anyhow, I better get a few more things done as Beer O'clock is fast approaching.

Cheers.

I went to a friend's retirement party earlier this evening, and bourbon is more often than not the drink of choice around here in Kentucky, but I'd rather have a bourbon barrel stout:

They are good. I think the bourbon flavor from aging in the barrel pairs well with the dark beer.

Looks like Bourbon Barrel Stout (Clay Street Series) is also retired.
