      Nice Beer from Bamberg. Afaik this City has the highes brewery density in germany. A lot of old "micro"breweries. Batches are usually too small to cover export ambition's.

            Schlenkerla is fairly easily available at specialty beer shops in the US... Though usually very costly at about $6 USD for 0,5L.

            I like it but not a favorite, I just happened to get it by chance as the beers I ordered from a store some of them were out of stock so this batch they replaced the missing ones with some Schlenkerla, but I've had it before and it's nice but Rauchbier isn't a favorite.

              On motherboards: If some vendor made motherboards with coreboot, I'd buy and recommend these.

              For some reason, ALL of them insist on proprietary fw. It's as if they hate money. Sure they are aware of the influence of developers and power users, who care about these things?

                I'm right there with you. Pretty sure they love money, but apparently most money comes indirectly from OS (MSFT)/software vendors and hardware and systems manufacturers. Meaning if those companies cut a mobo manufacturer off....

                    IIRC all Chromebooks come with Coreboot pre-installed.
