Ballards Walk

Dec 3, 2006
09:0019:00

The annual Ballards Walk will take place on Sunday, December 3. Starting from the brewery at about 10am, walk down country lanes (or across country if you’re feeling brave and have your wellies on!) visiting such pubs as the Three Horseshoes, Elsted Inn, Keeper’s Arms, and possibly the Southdowns Hotel. Ballards will be launching their latest in the Old Bounder series of ales, and the full range will be available straight from the cask at the brewery.

As usual, we’ll be running a bus, picking up at various points between 8 and 9:30, and coming back via the White Horse, Rogate and some pub in Selham with lots of steps. Bus costs should be in the region of £10.

For more information, or to reserve a place on the bus, call Pete Brown on 01243 552908.

Sorry, the bus is now fully booked.

Calendars: so nearly there

Just noticed a slight problem with the calendars feed — while the times shown on the site are correct, the times in the feed are off by one hour as the fact that we’re on BST isn’t being picked up. So iCal etc will be showing events as starting one hour later than they already are.

I’ll try and work up a fix for this tomorrow night, although at the end of October the problem will go away by itself for a few months as the clocks will have gone back :)

Update: yay, fixed it. Everything should work correctly now.

Second update: and as soon as I fix it, a new version of the calendar module gets released. The subscription address has been changed in this, so you’ll need to resubscribe. Sorry…

Surprise!

Oh look. Greene King has confirmed that Hardys & Hansons will be closed at the end of the year.

The only printable response I can find is that GK is the 21st Century Whitbread. Although at least Whitbread usually waited a bit before closing the brewery they’d bought.

Isn’t it about time we said “enough is enough”? I for one won’t be drinking any of GK’s beers — oh, sorry, “brands”. Says it all, that.

Calendars are working again

Two fixes to calendars:

  • You can now click on dates in the calendar to see the events for that date. One thing to watch out for is that the event will now show the date it was posted in the header — see the actual event text for the date and time of the event
  • After updating the EventCalendar plugin, calendar subscriptions are working once again, so if you use iCal, Google Calendar or similar, then you can copy the location of the subscribe link into your software and it should all Just Work.

Phew! I think that’s everything now.

Sorry if the site has seemed to be a bit slow lately — apparently three of the four servers at the ISP are randomly freezing, which means the last server gets severely overloaded. Hopefully it’ll be better soon.
