Congratulations on reaching 100,000 posts, oc.net!
I think Dustin, Phil, and Robert deserve many congratulations, and many happy returns!

{edit}
Oh, and I'm not just saying this 'cause I'm a company man... I really enjoy the site, even when the discussions divert off to bottles of beer on the wall...

It helped that we got on a roll with the whole "post count" thread and the "59 bottles of (insert alchohol, animal, concept, etc here) on the wall"

Well it can't just have been the drive to midnight for New Year's since as I write this it's only around late tea or early supper time in Eastern Australia.  Save your strength for 2006, lads.

Don't worry, I'm planning to do it all over again tonight! We are literally in the process of rolling up the rugs for the dancing tonight as I type! I can now contribute a fairer share to the work!

I'm sorry you're under the weather, Jakub.  I hope you're on the road to recovery at least.

Elfin elixir... hmmmm.   Creme do Lembas?   ;)

Actually, a friend introduced me to "Limoncello" and it's rather nice.  It's an italian liqueur sort of thing made lemon peel.  Very fragrant.

Of course, there's also "Old Sheep Dip".

Liquor of Lemon peel... interesting

Is it to be commonly found, or only in a specialty/import type store?
