Mine is unicoder, see how many people know what Unicode is !

I'm a retired software / air frame / electronics engineer was with BAE systems, worked on apache ah64 helicopters , serviced them in Iraq ,Afghanistan and worked with AH-1w cobras USMC training.

Based for 3 years in Fort Hood, Texas.

All that should be a secret, so I'm told :)

Many years ago we had an old clonker of a pc and the only ISP that would work on it was AOL. So we signed up and they gave us 5 email addresses. We have 4 children so each of them wanted an address leaving my wife Andie and I to share. Hence my screen name that I have used all over ever since.

Mine is fairly straight forward, I love Irish Whiskey :D as well as Scotch (Single Malt and good blends), American (Bourbon, Rye etc) Japanese and any other whisk(e)y I'm lucky enough to get my hands on :lol:

Was a bit of an obsession until the kids came along which has put a halt to my buying. Had over 500 bottles in my collection at one stage (both for investment and drinking) but that was a few years back ... now down sizing :wub: .

Certainly is ;)

I actually have just under 70 bottles currently open which is me being good :mellow: as I had over 120 open at one stage .... but for me it is all about variety so when I go into my office I can pick what ever suits my mood. And before people start to panic these bottles have a long shelf life and it is not as if I'm drinking a bottle a day or anything ...

Sold some of the more collectable ones lately to get part or my down payment on the duster.

So it's all good. Whiskey can be a great investment if you can spend time on the research.

Mine comes form my name. Ionuţ and the triple zzz (the sleeping sound effect? ) because I'm too lazy sometimes. :lol:

Ionuţ is a Romanian boy name. The meaning of the name is `God is Gracious`.

Ionuţ = Yon-oots

(the strictly correct spelling is with a cedilla, a kind of little comma, under the T)

It's the diminutive form of Ion, "John", so would be like "Johnny".

The odd time ;)

For me when drinking whiskey it is all about quality as opposed to quantity, that's what beer is for :lol: .

A glass of say a Laphroaig 18yo would probably last me longer than 3 glasses of your bog standard blend. However I'd prefer to pay €80 for the privilege of the bottle that will last me anything from 12-18 months rather than pay €10-15 a measure for it in a pub :eek:

But yes I'm weird :rolleyes:

Here's a pic of my whiskey cabinet ...
