Beer and Tech. Yes, they’re strange bedfellows for a blog. But they’re passions of mine that I’d like to share.
What began as a blog from my days at Uni, has stayed with me since. There’s so much I should have already shared. But hopefully, with some more time, and some inspiration from some interested readers, I can turn this around.
Simple, complex, interesting, boring, diverse, exclusive, beneficial, damaging, contemporary, traditional, tasty, bland, nerdy, sophisticated, inspiring, repulsive, collaborative, divisive, serious – and fun. I challenge any other beverage to command so many adjectives.
Whether you’re making it, or just drinking it, beer can inspire such passion. I’ve met some amazing people through beer, and I’ve hardly even scratched the surface.
I’m still a relative newcomer, but I feel like I’ve come so far, on what some aptly call the beer “journey”. There’s so much I still want to learn, but I also want to share what I’ve discovered.
It’s a bit of a dirty word, put politics fascinates me. And for better or worse, the beer world has it in spades. You probably won’t find many beer reviews here. Instead, I hope you might join me for a deeper look at what I find interesting about beer – and enjoy it as much as I do.
I’m a creative person at heart.
I get a great deal of satisfaction making something work just a little better than it did before.
What is djrxr6?
The story is pretty simple and not very exciting. Oddly too, despite the strange expressions I see from people as they read or say it, few ask me where it came from. If you’ve gotten this far though, I assume you’re curious. So here it is.
I needed a tag/handle for an online gaming service. Battle.net, Steam, or something. I don’t recall now. It seemed pretty inconsequential given many of the gamer handles you see as a jumble of letters and numbers. I figured it would be temporary too. So I simply combined my initials with the model of car I owned at the time. That’s it.
Since it was kinda unique, I just seemed to keep using it. It’s certainly weird, and I’m a little embarrassed by it at times. But what can I say, it’s me. I’ve owned it.
Maybe I’ll come up with a better name for my website one day. One that better reflects my two passions. I’ve had a few ideas, but I’m sticking with djrxr6 for the moment.
