Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

[When our local started running out of beer, we came to our sense and asked for the immediate execution of all fuel tax protestors]

Fuel crisis causes Mayfair madness



In nearby (to me) Seattle, there are pubs attached to breweries to survive emergencies such as G.B. appears to be enduring.



If all else fails, you might dust off the bicycles and see if you can't ride to a similar oasis. (The streets might even be safer for a bit if the motorists fear wasting the fuel to run you over.)

Just read your article about the fuel crisis getting you into difficulty at the Old Monk. We realised this some days ago and instead of panic buying petrol we headed down to the Prince of Wales on Old Brompton road and spent the evening panic drinking. The operation was a success (as I remember it) and we all got our chosen tipple.

I would say Adnams is a fine pint, especially Broadside. I'd go for that in front of London Pride any day.



You should count yourself lucky, in a pub I went to recently they had stopped doing Marston's Pedigree and had gone to Courage Director's (bleaah!!).

I did think that not driving and living off freezer food is not too bad, but not having beer would cause the country to rise up.

My poor hapless IT hacks how I feel for you. In this, your time of crisis, what can we Americans do to help?



Working in the technology industry (see, my address is coming from HP) I understand the need for beer after work. Of course your beer is likely to be a much higher grade than ours but the fact still stands that a cold beer at the local steak house is extremely important.

If this goes on too long we may have to airlift booze straight to you poor people. I have a full case of Red Seal on hand if that need should arise. It's a fine amber beer and I'd surely hate to part with it but it would be for the greater good and all. Who knows? Perhaps I can find a flat of Moose Drool which is a nice dark but not heavy beer.

Oi, I feel for you people. Having to drink cider after work. My heart really does go out to you.

Whatever happened to Young's horse-drawn drays? It wasn't that long ago they were still using them for London deliveries because they were cheaper than trucks.
