As you may have noticed, Malt Madness has been (relatively) active on Twitter too.
I still think the length of 140 characters is very limiting, especially because I like to use long
words in conversation to confuse friends & foes alike. However, I'm not blind to advantages.
So, I've added a few 'tweet feeds' to this site, that enable me to add thoughts & opinions
about whisky to the site within minutes, from practically anywhere in the world.
And why wouldn't you want to follow me? The fact that you're reading this indicates that you haven't got something better to do anyway. ;-)
And it's quite an opportunity too - unless you are a policeman or a spy, there are not many other (legitimate) reasons to follow somebody...
The only down side is that Twitter can be 'over capacity' sometimes...
Waiting a few seconds and hitting the F5 button usually resolves the
situation. If it doesn't, I kindly suggest that you try don't get annoyed.
Look at it as an opportunity to practice the fine art of patience, I'd say.
Just one more thing. If you are a member of the general public, you will
probably own an iPhone or a similar smart device. Chances are that
you are not using it at the moment, though - because the MM site was
not designed with mobile users in mind. Not to worry though; you can
simply follow me on Twitter to stay updated on my whisky adventures.
So, what's in store for the future?
I usually enjoy a few drams of single malt whisky
March 23, 2013 - I finally finished a much-needed reconstruction of the 'Deviant Drams' section.
March 21, 2013 - I've taken a long break from work on the site, but I've now expanded a number of profiles in the Distillery Data section with extra information and additional tasting notes. I'm also happy to report that I've finally made some progress with the Deviant Drams section. Expect some news soon...
March 10, 2012 - The last distillery profiles have just been updated with fresh and additional information.
February 1, 2012 - I've finished the upgrades of roughly a third of all distillery profiles.
December 30, 2011 - I've started a refurbishment of the Distillery Data section.
December 27, 2011 - The mAlmanac has been revised and restructured. Over the years the navigation structure had evolved into a nightmare that was held together with the internet equivalent of sticky tape and chewing gum. Now I've streamlined some of the old pages, so surfing around should become a lot easier;
December 17, 2011 - The bad news is that the Advanced Beginner's Guide is not finished yet.
March 21, 2011 - I've published a blog post about my last dram for a while: the Black Bull 40yo. I've decided to "freeze" my blog until I've managed to bring my weight to a healthier level (i.e. below 100 kilo's).
February 21, 2011 - Hurray; two months of winter have already passed and the days are already growing longer. Nevertheless, the nights are still long (daylight is gone by 18:00), which gave me plenty of time to work on a new page. I hope that the new schematic industry overview (with links to all Scotch whisky distilleries) will help to make this surprisingly complex industry just a little more transparent.
January 19, 2011 - As I wrote on my Liquid Blog, I've begun cleaning out a few hundred empty whisky bottles from my malt whisky shelves. Until now, I hung on to them due to a unique combination of foresight and laziness. I anticipated the credit crisis and felt that I needed to keep the raw materials for the production of Molotov cocktails handy - just in case of a global revolution. However, it seems that the powers that be try to preserve the status quo for a few more years. If only for practical purposes, it seems I should get rid of the bottles.
January 1, 2011 - Happy 2011, everybody!
2011 - My blogging is gradually replaced by Twittering on whisky.
Malt Madness 'Progress Report':
And those were just the thoughts from the top of my big head.
Here's a list of the tasks I hope to finish in the coming months;
