Last week, I attended the PC management class I requested last August. Since it covered many of the internal tinkerings and explorations I’ve done on my own (albeit in a more formalized and structured setting), there was very little that seemed arcane or mysterious to me. Truth be known, it was interesting being in a room filled with IT professionals and being on roughly the same level with them. If nothing else, I walked away from the class with a small bit of affirmation that I may yet not be a lost cause.
At the volunteer meeting for the 2003 Beer Summit, I got another such affirmation. According to the organizer, the regional rep for Unibroue is unavailable for the event. Normally, this would mean that the brewery would not be present, but in a delightful twist, he told Josh that if clayrobeson and I would man it, he would make sure that Unibroue supported a table. He had enjoyed working with us so much that he asked for us specifically, and has entrusted us with representing the brewery. This all made Josh very happy, and I confess I’m pretty excited as well. That and the suggestion that good things could be arranged for a Tour de Chambly left me all warm and tingly.
We like warm and tingly.
