I know this has nothing to do with beer, but I was just searching the web and no one seems to be noting that today is the 5th anniversary of the spectacularly ill-timed announcement that Gateway Computers was closing all of its Gateway Country Stores.
I worked there for 4 years and ended up running several service centers. We made our mistakes and made a lot of people mad. On the balance, however, I think we made a lot more people happy (or at least a little bit less afraid of technology.) Also, I was lucky enough to make some great friends, meet some great people, and have some great times.
So I give you a comments section to post your memories/grudges and lift a beer (I would suggest a Milk Stout) for the spotted lady. L'chaim
