This made my day. From the MSNBC blog:
Though it seems mostly as the result of marketing strategy, Stormhoek appears to have established itself as the geek wine.
"Mostly a result of marketing strategy"? Really? I wrote down some of my thoughts about this over on the Stormhoek blog.

Another slice of genius; when is the t-shirt coming?
Ergo, Philip K. Dick had it right all along. What is real and what is not?
Nothing is better than eternal happiness.
A ham sandwhich is better than nothing.
Therefore, a ham sandwhich is better than eternal happiness.
(replace "ham sandwhich" with "gapingvoid" for some major brown-nosing.)
Congrats Hugh on the ubergeekiness of your wine - may you go and Stormhoek go from strength to strength.
Make the pain go away, and can I have that Canon L series lens for Christmas?
Your are a kind and gentle God.
Great, great cartoon. And thanks for the shirt tip. I expect to be wearing mine by the weekend!
Actually there is a real truth in the obverse.
God is Marketing.
Mostly by marketing strategy, MSNBC seems to be reporting fuzzily on what it can never be or seme.
Hi all, I need help. Our family computer is running like a slug. It takes forever to startup and open programs and the hard drive activity light is always on. It also uses up a lot of RAM for some reason but the CPU usage is normal. I have another hard drive that is in a removable tray that I use, and that has all the same settings and everything, but that one is using a fraction of the RAM and runs pretty good! Please help! ?
