b33r festival query
Does anyboydie know what the deal is WRT free food and cheap beer if you work at the beer festival? I was thinking of going and working tonight if they need people, but basically (dreadful selfish person that I am) I would partly be doing it so as to get fed & watered on the cheap... But, I already have food in for tonight, so getting fed wouldn't be much use to me.

So, do you get food tokens, or food only at the time you're working, or what?

Is anybody else going tonight (working or drinking or both)?

I'm planning to go. (Just eating and drinking, not working.)

Ah. Part of the reason I was going to try to work this year was so that I might avoid getting shouted at by uncivil staff members for being a crap CAMRA member who doesn't contribute anything...

I don't blame you. If they want people to come back -- and every year they whinge that there aren't enough people -- then they have to treat them well. Yes, the organisers are under stress, but if they can't cope with looking after a team of untrained volunteers they shouldn't be running one.

I wouldn't have thought there'd be much to need to know -- beer is labelled with what beer it is, you turn the tap and it ends up in the glass, it comes in pint or half-pint quantities. If there's more to know than that then I've never needed to know it for serving the real ale at the Carlton... so I will probably get shouted at anyway. :-/

From my (limited) experience of serving beer at the beer festival, that's about all you need to know.

I won't be there tonight. Usually you get a dinner token for the evening session, and you can buy staff beer vouchers (50p per half pint). I've not worked this year yet, so I can't comment on whether that's changed (but I'd be suprised).

I think I'm going to avoid pretty much the whole festival this year for several reasons:
a) if I go to just drink I don't want to feel guilted in to volunteering and I know that would happen.
b) I don't have much money
c) I really need to diet before I turn back in to pure lard so b33r really isn't the answer


*giggle* On the other hand I could add an air of mystery and claim I may or may not be going just to annoy people who think I should stay at home the whole time lest I get in the way of them socialising.

In unrelated news, someone's come up with a way to do nested lists the way you wanted. It's a little...erm...

Well that didn't seem to work in Mozilla. And if you are willing to hardcode the item number as part of the HTML introducing each item, you might as well just write the item number in the text and forget the fancy HTML/CSS tricks.

HTML just ain't structural markup...

Ah, but if you include the number as an attribute then you're making it much easier to make better use of the data later on. HTML may not be very good at doing structural markup but some things are less bad than others...

In the end the thing I was trying to do that style of numbering for went up as a PDF though. :-}

I'm not sure why

<div class=item3><li> foo</div>

is any better than, say,

<li><div class=itemlabel>3.</div> foo

in that respect. The latter has a lot more chance of actually working.

We shall be along once we've eaten.
