greg-gFriend's parents in Sonoma own a vineyard. This is Rowan and Carrie swimming in their pool. It was as amazing of a house as you think (well, almost, not extreme, but... very nice)00:25
rick_h__love the stone pool area like that00:28
rick_h__vs straight grey concrete stuff00:28
greg-git was purty00:28
greg-galso came home one bottle of wine richer :)00:29
greg-gjust bottled last month(?)00:29
rick_h__always a good thing :)00:29
rick_h__hmm, what kind of wine?00:29
greg-gnot my fav, but it'll do00:29
rick_h__put that away for a long time00:30
rick_h__7yr or so00:30
greg-gwow, ok00:30
rick_h__one month old it'll need a lot of settling to be yummy00:30
greg-ghe said it's about a 13% abv00:30
greg-gand yeah, bottled on premise00:30
rick_h__yea, but cabs are all biting flavors and guess they need time to smooth out00:30
rick_h__I thought I didn't like cabs00:30
rick_h__but then read up and tried one that was 8yr old00:31
rick_h__it was delish00:31
rick_h__so I think I just tried to get 1 or 2yr old bottles that weren't ready yet00:31
* greg-g nods00:32

rick_h__yea, they've not paid to store it for 5+ years00:32
rick_h__warehouses are expensive and all that00:32
greg-gI go by one on my way down to the city00:33
rick_h__especially since they need to hold temp/etc00:33
greg-gwine "cellar" storage place00:33
rick_h__ah, very cool00:33
greg-gyeah, I think you can rent small spaces in it00:33
greg-gyeah, we won't be able to keep ours for 7 years safely :/00:34
greg-gmight have to JFDI00:34
rick_h__well let me know how it goes. It'd be awesome to do a taste test of wine at fresh, 2yr, 5yr, 8yr kind of thing00:35
rick_h__and see how something ages like that00:35
rick_h__but it'd have to be same vineyard, same grapes, etc00:35
greg-gI might be able to get a few more bottles...00:35
greg-gbut, we don't have a safe place, really :/00:35
rick_h__yea, same here00:36
rick_h__it's just something to keep in mind when I buy things00:36
rick_h__watching the years more carefully depending on the variety00:36

mrgoodcatgot caught in a hail storm this weekend at my brother's lacrosse tournament13:34
mrgoodcatnot fun13:34
jrwren_not fun like training for a marathon is not fun, but in the end, you can say that you did it.13:35
jrwren_You survived a HAILSTORM!!13:35
mrgoodcatha yea... i would rather not be able to say that13:40
mrgoodcathail hurts13:40
mrgoodcatbesides, i've done marathons so i don't need to add a hailstorm to the resume13:40
cmaloneyI think you're not thinking big enough13:41
cmaloneyRunning through a hailstorm during a marathon while being chased by a tornado13:41
cmaloneyThink of how improved your time will be13:41
cmaloneyjrwren_: That Medium piece you retweeted is hardly Google becoming IBM.17:02
jrwren_i agree.17:06
jrwren_in fact, I found the author very naive.17:07
jrwren_which he suggested a few times throughout.17:07
cmaloneyesp. the desire to get paid for an app that just brokers Kahn Academy content via Youtube.17:11
cmaloneyThat's a "derp" moment right there.17:11
jrwren_he espoused many values in that post, none of which align wiht my own.17:13
cmaloneyYeah, it reminded me of the bad ol' days of Shareware17:18
cmaloneyor the "I can't afford to release this software without ads" mentality17:19
cmaloneyWhich I find curious and repugnant17:19
jrwren_shareware or ads?17:20
jrwren_which search engine do you use?17:20
cmaloneyShareware is fine17:20
cmaloneythe "it's free but with ads, and the ads can't be turned off for any amount of money"17:21
cmaloneyand yes, i use Google.17:21
jrwren_oh! well that is annoying for sure.17:21
* jrwren_ hands cmaloney duckduckgo :p17:21
cmaloneyBut how will Google know what I'm thinking?17:22
jrwren_or show you ads which cannot be turned off for any amount of money?17:22

cmaloneyThis is a good cover of the Soft Cel Version. ;)17:25
cmaloneyI'm surprised how many songs I first heard as covers17:27
cmaloneybut that's how I discover some of my music17:27
cmaloneyI mean, Joe Jackson's Jumpin' Jive introduced me to Louis Jordan17:29
