Seriously, have people come up with a name for a beer.

If they should rebadge their product, I'd suggest steering clear of the "LED Lite" beer. :) Too bad I can't
be there this year as I'd love to try a PDP-8 porter or an IMSAI IPA or a SWTPC Stout.

I am a bit concerned about serving alcholic beverages at the event because what liabaility issues will we have if someone gets intoxicated and hurts themselves or someone else?

themselves or someone else. Someone could get electrocuted touching
an old computer or cut on one. Someone could fall navigating though
the exhibits. I would assume that InfoAge has insurance? If it does
not, then those responsible are stupid to open it to the public!
>> I am a bit concerned about serving alcoholic beverages at the event because what liability issues will we have if someone gets intoxicated and hurts themselves or someone else?I thought of that. We can make our policy a two-drink maximum, per person, per day. And we'll use common sense: if someone appears to have had too much, then we won't serve them.
Mostly I am not worried (and I am very good at worrying!) We are not the first event to sell alcohol, you know?
I'm also not worried about simple spillage, because people already carry water, soda, etc., and there's never been a problem.
We should have exhibitors sign general liability waivers anyhow. Fred always reminds me of that.
Anyway, I probably jumped the gun by announcing this before we know if the township will give us a permit.

damn good backup strategy, is the ability to have very long-lived files
in one's home directory.
Starting about 1993, my friend and then-coworker Mag and I started
two "archive" files: band names and beer names. They've steadily grown
over the years. The beer name archive contains such gems as:
Golden Bilge Beer
Party In Your Mouth Beer
Edge of Death Beer
Captain Cholesterol High Fiber Beer
Sleeping Giant Beer
Flirting With Disaster Beer
Unfinished Business Beer
The Man's Beer
Cream of Demon Beer
Liquid Courage Beer
"No Trouble Here, Officer" Beer
Exaggerated Response Beer
Chopped and Formed Smoked Beef Snack Beer
New Kensington, PA
