Bloke installs PC in whisky bottle

We'll drink to that

Build a business case: developing custom apps

That whisky PC in fullThose of you who have ever wondered what they do in Finland to pass those endless winter nights will be delighted to learn that, thanks to reader Mark Morgan, we can now reveal the astounding truth: the activity of choice is to get plastered on imported scotch and then install a PC in the empty bottle.

Yes, it's as simple as that. In case you're wondering, the motherboard is a JREX-786LCD Socket-370 Pentium-III with MPEG2/DVD (64MB VRAM). The scotch is a "complex, refined and elegant blended scotch whisky", according to the Ballantines label, whose flavour is dependent on more than 50 single malt flavours, four single grains and "in particular the fingerprint malts from Miltonduff and Glenburgie".

Accordingly, the company rates the taste as: "Well balanced with tones of chocolate, apple and vanilla followed by a gentle floral finish." ®
