I am a founding member of ColoFind, LLC. It's a connector between those needing data center services and those providers out there with a variety of offerings. My job is to connect with those provider partners, getting them up to speed, helping them fill in the data users need and helping them put their best foot forward. ColoFind is a medium whereby users and providers can hook up. Users get multiple bids for there requests, hence they get the best for less. Providers get RFP's that have been vetted by out other members, ensuring that they are not bidding upon air. When they get a bid from us, they get a solid lead or referral. The advantages go both ways. Serious users get connected to serious providers.
I learned about Scotch long ago. My step-father went bar hopping with one of my brothers and I. We took him to our haunts, he took us to his. He paid for all the Scotch, while we paid for the beers. Eventually, Scotch tasted pretty good. Fortunately, my step-father never ordered bar Scotch. Since then, I've learned there's a Scotch for everyone. I prefer ingle malt Scotch aged in sherry or wine casks, such as The Balvenie. However, I've always like Johnny Walker Black Label. Another brother prefers a peatier Scotch, those aged in old Bourbon barrels, where you can taste the peat charcoal, such as Laphroaig. My son is the same. My step-father preferred lighter blended Scotch, like Dewar's or Balletine. So, the statement seems true.
The Balvenie - but not all the time.
