Thanks much to Tempus Dictum for taking the plunge and buying the first ad on Beervana. As intended, I know nothing about Tempus Dictum and didn't, until they bought this space, know they existed. But I am appreciative to the company for sparing me from having to look at that "your ad here" spot on the blog for another day. Thanks!
Oh, and while we're doing blog business, I should mention that I've tightened up content moderation following a massive hit on the site last night. I've previously had moderated comments for any post older than 7 days; I ratcheted it back to three. I'll relax it if things settle back down.
