  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

Keeping drinks cool

Any tips as to how I can keep my beer/water/etc cold? Last year I had a rather crappy cooling box so I had to drink lukewarm (at best) beer..

I've found this, which I think would be good:

A good cooling box is important if you want to keep cold things cold.

In order to make warm things cold i bring a big cooler filled with ice, if i keep it in the shade and manage to keep the lid closed at all times the ice will last up to 5 days, less of course if you keep putting lots and lots of warm beers into the box.
Smaller coolers in my experience usually last about 3 days.

If you have got a freezer at home it's cheapest to just fill freezing bags with water and put them in there (make sure they're closed well), otherwise just find a place locally that sells ice at reasonable price.

Getting hold of fresh ice at the festival has proven to be fairly difficult in the past, it's usually sold at way too high prices. In the city there might be places with better prices, but i wouldn't know where.

a easy way is to keep them under your tent right on the surface of the dirt. That will keep the cold untill about noon.

Another way is to wrap the bottle in wet newspaper and but it in a sock or similar to hold it tight. Then leave it in the sun.
The energy used to dry the newspaper will be taken from the warm beer/soda so when the paper is dry the beverage will be cold.

When you buy a case of cold beer, just keep it in your sleeping bag..It will stay cold the whole day. icon_wink.gif

When you buy a cold case of beer - drink it up.
Sharing is caring - then the next guy picks up the next cold case.

lukewarm beers are a part of festival life... other than that, sharing, caring and drinking while it's cold is the mantra in our camp as well

If I am not mistaken, last year they have added a bag of ice when you bought certain drinks, including a case of beer.

I've found the easiest way to keep your beer cool is to get some cold water. We were a fairly small camp last year (only three people), so we got one of those 20l water cans and cut a hole in the top. We could fit some 15 cans of beer in there and it was cool for a few hours even in the middle of the days before we had to get new and colder water. Some of our neighbours used one of those small inflatable pools and it seemed to work well for them too.

Lots of coll (no pun intended) suggestions, thanks icon_biggrin.gif

I've thought about a flamingo-box. It should works just fine with some frozen water

How about just drinking the beer between you while it's cold, then going to buy more? Take it in turns to pay... Failing that, just drink it warm... it's tradition!!

Yes, that was my point. 24 beers should be gone, before they get warm.

This one seemed pretty handy as well.
I know lots of you have power supplys connected to you boominators.
40$ too, not too bad.

Was a bit suspicious about the spin cycle, but it seemed to be OK in the demo.
Things always are right?

The store sells ice and remember certain drinks can be drunk at room temperature. Like Vodka and Red Bull. Plus they do sell cold beer by the case, but you have to drink it quickly if you want it to stay cold. We usually go into town early, get some ice, and slushies and add Vodka and then we are good to go. They have sold Ice at the Festival before, and they may do so again. Unless it rains.
