In advance is as important as during. Try to have a pint of water an hour, from midday to midnight. Six pints of water over the afternoon before you start will give you stamina and sobriety.
I think 'sobriety' is probably stretching the point.

I am beside myself with glee that we seem to have hauled this one out of the fire. I was starting to make other plans. Ok, I will update the first post and combine information from recent posts when I get the time (this will not be before Sunday, especially since the Forum seems to be so exceptional...

Maldevos? I can't be bothered copying and pasting and quoting and posting. Consider yourself slapped with a leather gauntlet.

Re: BFT, Friday 22nd April 2016

Annoyingly, I can't go. I have my last class that day, and I'm introducing a film in the film festival next day. Agghh. Nightmare. So that takes you out of any tasting on Thursday 21st as well, which I think we were lining up to be a GC vertical? Yeah, I'll have to get back on this one. It's just i...

Cr70 always has low levels in my experience but I've only had a few leakers. It's always good.

Re: Wed 24th of February 2016 Vesuvio tasting

Apologies everyone. Now that I finally have my full timetable for this semester I have to drop out of this tasting - it's absolutely impossible for me I'm afraid. Sorry also for the late notice.

10k topics, almost 100k posts. TNs have one to three posts each; One Quiz has many more. So that is plausible. Yet another accounting error from the unemployed counting-man.

Re: Port and literature

Presentation and performance is everything. Hard to do with a spreadsheet; I spent all yesterday filling a big one in the hope that the number in the bottom right would be the number we started with (it wasn't, but that was sort of the point). Get away with your spreadsheets.

Yes. Alex's turn. Rather nice here in The Dominican. But not looking forward to the day-long meeting tomorrow in which 6 people try to finish filling in a European Commission funding application for €5m.

Note to self: don't get taxis from the airport in future.
