I admit it: I'm a total geek. I love electronics, programming, 3D art, vintage Apple hardware, and whisky. I'm always juggling half a dozen projects. I also enjoy documenting it all: my successes, my failures, my experiences... and everything geeky along the way.

Highland Park Full Volume


blogEntryTopper
I was so excited to get my hands on a bottle of Highland Park Full Volume. When I saw it announced, I just had to cross my fingers that someone around here would stock it. Total Wine to the rescue. They always get the coolest stuff. Read More...

Glenmorangie Sampler

Cardhu 12-Year

I wasn't in there to get myself anything, but I couldn't help myself from taking a walk down the whisky aisle. Read More...
