Hi guys - just finished listening to the historic episode #150.
Congratulations! I'm sure you'll make it to #1050...

You were talking about creating an annual Java Posse Award, and
awarding this year's to Landon Fuller for porting OpenJDK to Leopard.
Here here!! Well deserved.

I have a suggestion for what the Java Posse Award could be:
Since the Java Posse has become more of a community than just a
podcast, and in keeping with a regular theme of the Posse, how about
awarding a free beer, provided by volunteers from your community, in
any of the many cities around the world where we live.

I'd like to volunteer for Tokyo.

So Landon, if you're ever in Tokyo, contact me to collect your free
beer!

Any other volunteers?

Cheers,
Will.

There is plenty of beer in Brisbane Australia mates. Im sure Michael
Neale, Peter Becker and I will all pay for a round.

To be correct OpenJDK was ported to OS X (Tiger?) not just Leopard.
So that's got to count for 2 beers at least.

Trainspotting Pub Tour...

I'll provide beers in Auckland - also an heinously uncomfortable spare bed if needed ;p

Yes, +1 for Brisbane Australia. We can rapidly secure large beer
supplies.

I am often in Sydney, so there applies too.

Count me in for covering Seattle

Wouldn't want Landon Fuller to miss out on having some of the best of
the micro-brews in the US if he were to come this way!

OK, I'll cover Sweden. If I'm not in the town Landon visits, I'll make
arrangements. :)

I would be happy to be the purveyor of San Diego beerage.  With the caveat that I refuse on religious grounds to feed anyone craptastic beer.  (My opinion of craptastic being really the only important one.)

I would move that possibly the Posse award should perhaps just place a moratorium on craptastic beer.  I'd suggest a working definition of craptastic be " U.S. beer that advertises during the commercial breaks of televised sports."

With Heineken being a desperate cry for help: "I don't know anything about beer, but my heart is in the right place."

Hmm... I wonder if we could get an official beer sponsor?

Guinness for strength!

With the likes of Hoegaarden
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoegaarden_Brewery) and Dogfish Head
(http://www.dogfish.com/) around, I completely agree with the
definition of "craptastic beer".

Note: I can't find any of these in India and seriously am mulling the
idea of getting into the business of importing good beer into my
country. I can't stand whats available here :(

Regards

Amarjeet

I totally agree and would be happy to be the beer supplier in a local
brew pu in Victoria, BC, Canada even though I use Ubuntu.

Oh.. and if anybody wants to come up here for a VIJUG
(http://www.mosabuam.com/vijug) meeting I will also sponsor a beer or
two.

Stay in the IT businees. Importing beer by definition does not result
in being able to drink beer. After all it has to be prepped for the
long journey of export/import which makes it undesirable. So good beer
is never exported .. it is drunk locally where it is fresh.
Import/hire a brew master and start a local brewery if you want good
beer.

As we gave the world Guinness, we can off course provide beer in
Ireland.
