Pay Schedule

Here is my first draft at coming up with a set, formulaic pay schedule based on number of players. The formula is: First place gets 1/2 the total rounded up to the nearest $5. Second place gets 1/2 of what first place got, rounded down to the nearest $5. Third place gets half of second, rounded down, and so on, always rounding down after first place. The correction column represents the money left after following the formula. The spreadsheet won't let me add this money back in, because that changes the amounts used to calculate this amount, and it recurses into a tailspin. Maybe someone more skilled with spreadsheets than I can figure out how to handle this, but my proposal is this: if the correction amount is 5, it goes to the winner; if it is 10, first and second each get 5; if it is 15, first, second, and third each get 5 extra. If I figure out how to attach a file I can post the actual spreadsheet document, otherwise here is the table:

The Lagavulin story and review

I posted the story and my review of the Lagavulin from last month over at OhCaptain Poker. Maybe I should cross post it here. Hm.

Who else is gonna review it? Bueller? Bueller?

A Real Woman

A Real Woman

A real woman is a man's best friend. She will never stand him up and never let him down. She will reassure him when he feels insecure and comfort him after a bad day. She will inspire him to do things he never thought he could do; to live without fear and forget regret. She will enable him to express his deepest emotions and give in to his most intimate desires. She will make sure he always feels as though he's the most handsome man in the room and will enable him to be the most confident, sexy, seductive and invincible...

No wait...

It's whiskey that does all that crap. Never mind.

As complete a list of whiskeys as I've got

I've updated the page that lists all of the whiskeys I have record of. I'm quite sure there are more. If you have more, just let me know. In case you haven't seen it, at the top of the first page of this blog it says "Whiskeys we've tried" - that's the permanent link. Also, if you have something online about a particular spirit you'd like to link to, let me know and we'll update it. I think any of us that are listed as contributers can update the list.

Go get thirsty looking at the list.

Expanding the house that whiskey built

While I know I still have a great deal of writing to do, I added two pages to this web site and I think there goals will be self evident. The links are at the top of the page.

First is a page called "Whiskey's We've Drank". I've been going back through my blogs and photos and adding the booze of the month to the list. I was also hoping to add links to anything we have written about them. So if you have something you want shared, send me the link.

Second page is for poker points. Zack, I'll need to figure out how to add you to the spreadsheet so you can change the numbers. The post with the points will drop off as soon as we post more stuff. The spreadsheet can be done in real time and is sortable, which makes it handy to see that while I'm currently in first place, my stellar performance on last Friday should result in a new leader soon.

Let me know if you have any thoughts on this. Comments and emails are more then welcome!
