Yeah that was initially my thought. But I decided to give it a
go on my laptop first (as the guinea pig), then my office
machine, and then my photo production machine. The last is
still running Tiger.

So far I haven't found any untolerable problem. if 10.5.2
comes out soon, that's good news to me but I personally don't
feel the need to wait. I recall, when 10.4.2 or 10.4.3 came
out, the performance increased a bit. I am kinda hoping the
same happens with Leopard.

When I bought my dual G5 PowerMac I thought this would be the
last computer I would need. But then handling 300MB images on
Lightroom makes me wonder maybe I could use a dual quadcore
machine some day :-)

I thought Fritz Maytag of Anchor Brewing Company (and Anchor
Distilling Company) was a son of the washing machine
Maytag. All I have read indicates that he is such a whiskey
nerd and he wouldn't have time to worry about washing machines

Old Potrero is an interesting whiskey since Fritz Maytag
wanted to reproduce the first American whiskey, which was made
from rye in Pennsylvania. That's the "old" part of the name,
and not the actual age of the whiskey. (18th century whiskey
wasn't aged as long as today's whiskeys) I am not sure if
extra aging of this whiskey will elevate appreciation, since
it will further deviate from the original concept of the
product, and this is not a part of my "investment" portfolio.

Ok, that's about all I know about the U.S. history.
