    Mystic BBS and will we see BBBS version 10 this year and what will it
    look like?

    I think it's great that the free software is free but you have to look out because those greedy companies want to make the Linux a paid app. If they have their way we may never see Free Mystic 2038 because g00r00 will not be able to afford the app submission fees to the Linux App Store. It's a damn shame to because as we all know information wants to be beer as in speech. That's just my opinion though, and if you disagree you are a fucking bully picking on me I tell you what.

    Woo buncha old bastards drinking around the table talking about BBS's shit. Finally I'll be on the other side of those SysOp gatherings bac the 90's and I can drink. :)

    Where can I find this table of old guys? ;-)

    That would be fun... Who is drinking what? I drink stouts and darks... which
    a scotch on the side.

    Cheers!

    I wouldn't go as far as labeling us as old guys as I know for a fact
    some of us are in our 40s, although if you ask my 22 or 13 years old, we are old.

    If you used a floppy while mainstream, you're officially old. If you know how to dial pulse manually, you are definitely old. If you've struggled with
    more then 10 DIP switches while building a computer, you have one foot in the hole :) or vice and versa.

    My 19, 17, 11 and 9 says I'm young :)

    Cheers!

    Well, I guess we all have our faults, being a Habs fan in this case.

    Hahaha, are you sure?

    Being a Torontonian and a Leafs fan, it is kind of in our DNA to chirp at
    Habs fans. It is subconscious, I didn't even realize I typed it, lol.

    Well, you marry when you're young and a couple of kids pop out. Then you get divorced a number of years later, meet someone else after a while and get married again and she doesn't have any kids of course so it's pretty inevitable
    that she wants to have kids of her own. My oldest are two girls and my youngest are two boys - I sometimes joke that I had to find a new wife to get at least one boy to play soccer with. Neither my exwife or my wife finds that very amusing for some reason...

    I don't mind a Stout from time to time. I do enjoy Strongbow in the warmer months but Scotch is really my main drink.

    Oban is nice! I enjoy Aberlour, Glenfarclas, Tomatin, and Kavalan but I'm not super picky as there is usually something nice in most decent whiskeys.

    Good choices. The darker the better, except Guinness. As for scotches, I
    don't follow a specific and try to change every time to experience a bit. And since I almost always drink this with friends, we drink most of the bottle
    each time so :)

    We even had some crazy laugh having Nick Offerman as a guest in my living room (Google it's 10 hours scotch video on YT). It was really funny.

    There is such a thing as "hometown pride" and being loyal to your team, I understand that; but Leafs fans are completely insane and take it to the next level. It is absolutely batshit crazy how mentally unstable Leafs fans are.

    They have not won a championship game since '67. Even when losing to a
    shitty hockey team they will absolutely throw a coniption fit. When Tampa
    Bay kicked their ass one year, a fan or two threw a jersey on the ice. I can only imagine if by some divine miracle the Leafs actually *win* the cup, the city will freaking riot and have a special touchy-feely "Leafs day".

    We are the same fans that start the conversation off with "We didn't loose
    that badly last night, it was a good effort". I also remember in the 90s when we sealed our place in the Conference final. Half a million people partying downtown when we beat San Jose; it was just the Conference final we made it
    to for fucks sake.

    I can only imagine that is hell froze over and we were able to lift Lord Stanely's mug, we would defiantly burn this city to the ground.

    They're gonna have to move to another division that doesn't have

    Go Bruins.

    Hehehe, I really love seeing the face of my friends who drinks rhum. I start them with a smooth Talisker and finish them with a Dark Cove. I
    love the look of their face :)

    I have a life long friend who I went to school with who lays the progression
    as follows:

    Younger years: Gin. It was cheap and a great way to lower inhibitions
    20s - 40s: Rye Whiskey. Mature older people seem to enjoy it, why not us.
    40s +: Scotch. Ahhh, why the fuck weren't we drinking this all this time.

    I'm still haunted by 2013. I was rubbing in the fact that we were going to
    win to a life long Bruins fan only to have Boston come back in game seven
    after we were leading 4-1 heading into the 3rd. I'm still hearing about it.

    Yeah, I hear ya. It's painful for all fans at various times. I
    also am a lifelong Bruins fan who thought we had it in the bag
    last year, but.... didn't. That's why they play the games. :-)

    I don't live near Boston any more, but will always be a fan. I do
    have season tickets to the local (A-level SPHL) team in town here,
    and have a LOT of fun with that.

    I started into scotch when I was about 25 and haven't looked back. I, uh, drank
    way too much of it way too often from when I was about 29 to 33. I now enjoy it
    at a more relaxed pace (most of the time).

    See, you got it unlike the rest of us. My wife's boss is a massive Scotch

    Most LCBOs have a middling selection, so unless I make a special trip it's difficult to even find the expensive shit. I usually have something in the $55 - $90 range on hand, and at least there are some decent options in that bracket. I'm a bit out of touch now and haven't had much booze in the past year.

    I regret that I didn't keep a journal of all the scotches I tried, and I may need to start all over again at some point. I'd love to be able to go back through my notes and pick something to have again (or avoid).

    My gf and I are DINKs (Dual Income No Kids) living on tech salaries and we
    like scotch. Let's just say we've dropped a small fortune over the years. A typical favorite is Glendronach 18 Allardyce - delicious caramel-y Speyside.

    The Leafs have made a decent comeback after such a horrible start.

    I hope to do a scotch tour someday. Would be a great way to combine some awesome sightseeing with trying a lot of new beverages.

    The journal (especially if kept online) would help me when I'm at the store and
    I can't remember which of the options I've tried before. Seven years ago I had all of that information in my head, but I haven't used it in so long it's gotten rusty.

    in the 90's and I can drink. :)

    The last time I saw another BBS person was about 2016. It was nice! And prior to that was like 2006. They're out there, somewhere!

    Good choices. The darker the better, except Guinness. As for scotches, I

    I thought I liked all dark beer until I had a home-made one that was too dark.

    All the major brands (Heineken, Becks, St Pauli Girl, etc) taste great to me, but I was at some restaurant in Albuquerque where they make their own beer,
    and I thought "the darker it is, the more it will taste like Guiness, and the more I will like it," but I was wrong! The waitress was nice enough to switch it for a lighter, more manageable one.

    What's up with that stuff? I thought the dark color came from the roasting,
    not from the alcohol content.

    I guess too extreme might not be always good. I prefer balance.

    Yeah, I guess they must have a good bunch of returns for that kind of "niche" product.

    I was not aware either, maybe it was just a coincidence too.

    When you say balance, it makes me think about an IPA that we have in the
    states called "Sierra Nevada." It has a flavor that is on the extreme side of pale ales, and that flavor strength is balanced with its alcohol content.

    Sometimes cheap beer, like coors light, has weak flavor with seemingly high alcohol content; that's no way to enjoy a beer!

    I haven't had a "commercial" beer in over 10 years, I always drink micro-brewery. I don't really have a goto beer, I like to try different stuff every time. Also, I don't drink much so when I drink one, I appreciate it :)

    That's a good motto! Don't let the Dos Equis guy fool you though; his beer is ok if ice-cold, at best.
