As an American visiting England, I can attest to the fine quality of British Real Ale. I was impressed to learn that The Eagle pub in Cambridge has been drawing pints since the 1700's. Great pub grub, too.

Only the 1700s -- well, it's still considered to be a bit of a "fly-by-night" then (grin) My last house in England before I came over to America was built the year of the French Revolution ... and nobody thought that was worth commenting on :-)

I humbly petition the Supreme Commander-in-Chief for membership in the Froth Blowers. Perhaps you might consider expanding the breadth of the group by adding "...and Epicurean Society" at the end.

Welcome aboard Rick :-) Hmmm, "The Worshipful Ancient Order of Froth Blowers and Epicureans" (or maybe "Epicurean Froth Blowers") does have a certain ring to it ... I will have to have a few beers while contemplating this further...

I think some of us have a difference concept of "old" where I come from. Out here in the Pacific Northwest of the USA, a 50 year old house is getting along there and a 100 year old house is rare and considered very old. The only things we have from the 1700's are, like, rocks. We probably don't even have any trees that old. They were most likely all chopped down a few decades ago.

You might also consider a hat like this one: http://www.planetdiecast.com/hwdphotos/uploads/8611/718/Beacon_Beanie_Signal_Cap_1.jpg http://www.planetdiecast.com/hwdphotos/uploads/8611/718/Beacon_Beanie_Signal_Cap_2.jpg It's a fashion statement AND a secret signalling device for covert communication with other members!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
