Mornings on the Range

ODonnellWeb is old enough to vote

By From http://odonnellweb.com/journal • Dec 31st, 2013 • Category: Blog Entries.Local

On New Year’s Eve 1995 my wife was 7 months pregnant with our second child. We weren’t going out to party. In fact, she went to bed early, leaving me alone with a computer and a bunch of homebrew. For some reason, I decided I wanted to get a web site online in 1995. Starting with nothing more than Notepad and “View Source” on a few commercial sites such as IBM.com, I managed to hack together a simple one page site and upload it to my ISP webspace before midnight. It would be about 3 AM before I figured out the CHMOD command and made the page world readable, but it was there before midnight!
And here I am 18 years later, composing this update in Nano while SSH’ed into a web server. I’ve come a long way :)

This past weekend, Colleen and I finally made it back to MadWolf Brewing in Manassas. We had visited prior to their opening back in June, but busy life kept getting in the way of a return visit. After fighting the weekend traffic, we arrived at th…



Celebrating Christmas With Rifles and Whisky

The second day of the Christmas season was a day spent celebrating with a close friend of our family. After a tasty brunch of Scottish Eggs, Baked Beans, and homemade Crumpets it was time for some shooting fun. Another friend had graciously allowed us …



Beers of Winter – St. Bernardus Christmas Ale

As we did some pre-Christmas beer shopping, Colleen spied a bottle of St. Bernardus Christmas Ale on the shelf. Since this one was absent from her St. Bernardus flight the other evening, Colleen suggested we pick it up for our Christmas celebratio…



Beers of Winter – Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout

Brooklyn Brewery’s Black Chocolate Stout is one of those beers we buy every year, put in the basement, and forget about. When it’s time to enjoy a dark, rich Russian Imperial Stout, we’ll dig out an old bottle and enjoy the effects of aging. Such was t…
