Well just playing around and reworking code and stuff to consider a move to a new hosting service. We've been hosting our stuff for so long. Let see since 1995 or earlier. Kind of cool to get my hands dirty again coding. So we are staging this test move here at CodingCooters.com which was one hell of a good laugh at lunch the other day.

I hope things keep moving and we can give the TVB a new look and new features, we will see how it works out.

Happy New Year to all. Ah, it's that time of year again. The time of year when we resolve to do better in the future and reflect on the past. The time of year we gather with friends, drink heavily and try to slur our way through the words to Auld Lang Syne. For those of you, like myself, who can never remember the lyrics here they are. . .
  • Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind?
  • Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days of Auld Lang Syne?
  • For Auld Lang Syne,
  • My dear, for Auld Lang Syne,
  • We'll take a cup of kindnes yet, for Auld Lang Syne.
I know there's more to the song than that but that should be enough to impress your friends. Be safe and best of luck to you and yours in the coming year.
Some Trivia?!?

Did you know the First Elephant to set foot in America drank dark beer? Well it's true. The elephant arrived in America in 1796 on the Derby owned ship Captained by Jacob Crowninshield, he charged spectators 25 cents to watch the elephant uncork and drink the dark beer..

George Washington's favorite beer was porter, made in America to support the revolutionary effort, he declared he would only drink porter made in America and urged others to do the same.

In 1929 during the prohibition in America, it is estimated that there was about 700,000,000 gallons of home brewed beer and alcohol made.

Beer and Skittles: A British phrase meaning amusement, fun- with or without beer.
Small Beer: A person or thing of little importance.

Did you know the Court of Appeal in London ruled that American brewery Anheuser-Busch and Czech brewery Budejovicky Budvar may both use the Bud name in England. Despite the "danger of confusion" facing the beer-drinking public, three Court of Appeal judges ruled that the names Budweiser and Bud belongs to both breweries. The two breweries have been fighting around the world for exclusive rights to the Budweiser trademark. They have been battling in Britain since the 1970s, when both companies began marketing their products in England. The Czechs say they had claims to the name long before the Americans began brewing beer. "Budweiser," named after a Czech village called Ceske Budejovice, was made as far back as the Middle Ages, they say. The term Budweiser describes beer from that region, the same way Burgundy and Champagne describe wine from those wine-making regions of France, they say. The German immigrants who founded Anheuser-Busch, and who began brewing Budweiser in 1876, used the Budweiser name for their beer because it was well known in their homeland. In Czechoslovakia, the state-owned Budvar brewery was founded in 1895.
