Kids barred out at Guinness.com

No booze for you, sonny

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

It's good to see that guinness.com is taking a responsible attitude to underage drinking, what with the UK and Ireland's streets currently awash with alcopop-swilling tearaways laughing in the face of asbo-wielding coppers.

That's right, you must be of legal age to enter the site, so if you were born in 1990 in England, here's how Guinness will give you the heave-ho:

Sorry, we are unable to allow you access to our website due to regulations in your country of access

Please leave the GUINNESS® website »

Which, we have no doubt, even the most hardened council estate, joyriding ne'er-do-well will do without giving it further thought. Thank God our kids are being rigorously protected from the evils of stout. ®

Bootnote

We gather that some of you are having trouble getting into the site no matter how old you are - up to 106 years old, in this case. Sweden and Spain are apparently not allowed Guinness either, although we reckon this is an ActiveX problem on individual machines, since a quick random test showed Equatorial Guinea able to enjoy Guiness at leisure. Keep us posted.
