enter the wine contest 

El spawn of my SO's loins emailed me a contest entry to visit a spanish winery, thus I am making one of my incredibly rare blog entries that no one but the linkback marketing intern (Hi intern) will ever see. But it is 10 entry points and gosh a trip to spain to drink wine would be quite fantastic, I also bought a lottery ticket, if that works out perhaps I'll just buy the winery!

Anyway do enter the contest if you see this. http://buyingguide.winemag.com/features/destinations/2013/marques-de-riscal/contest

Ah reading the rules I see I need to give the recipe of my espcial tapas recipe that goes perfect with Marqués de Riscal Rosado 2012

Take a small tortila, sprinkle with a mix of Cabrales, sharp cheddar and feta cheeses, and some chopped tomato, a bit of dill, grill briefly, slice in quarters, exquisite!

I received the most marvelous compliment over IM from a colleague in Chennai India today. I was making snarky comments about the management of certain projects, just venting, and was told I my comments were poetic. But perhaps it was just the end of his day and he was being sarcastic. Or perhaps it's just that I hit the enter key somewhat accidentally/randomly and those odd breaks 'seem poetic'.
Ooo ooo, there's a topic on Metafilter that just is begging for a corresponding discussion here!

I am actually glad I don't have the give of online gab, I'm quite sure I could be way too effective as a troll or other loco internet denizen.

Software needs an entire huge effort to ease the installation and integration. I'm poking at Arc and it's fun and early but why is an installer that can just get it running anywhere so onerous to construct?

So I'm getting twitter.

I have been amused at how often the issue of 'getting' twitter occurs.

Will twitter or a twitterlike infrastructure become a background assumption like email? When was the last time you ask for an email and the person either did not have one or did not know what email is?

So if you've gotten this far, do follow me.
