The beer today is Spaten Optimator; it is not a favorite but still better than most beer found in America. Behind the Spaten Doppelbock is the NVIDIA Tegra 3 "Cardhu" development tablet. I have been using this nifty development tablet for porting more benchmarks to ARM and other Phoronix Test Suite improvements for NVIDIA. Overall, the Cardhu tablet is great. It is faster than the PandaBoard ES, which I am also very fond of, but it is not as cheap and harder to acquire. The docking station with Gigabit Ethernet and additional USB ports is also incredibly convenient. I am finding the ARM Linux space becoming especially interesting and that the best is yet to come over the next few years.

Of course, many beer glasses are within a few meters. After the common 16~18+ hour work days (or when working on weekends and holidays), quality German beer is always great and provides for motivation to squeeze a few extra working hours out of the day while enjoying some of the finest lavations of the world. Good beer really keeps me motivated and content to keep working.


Each of these beer glasses provides a unique story either about how the drinking glass itself was acquired, the story behind the particular beer, or about my thoughts on the beer itself. Most of the beer glasses here are, obviously, from Germany, Bavaria, and Austria.
