What's this "Vores Øl"?
Vores Øl (Our Beer) is a great tasting energetic beer and it's the
world's first open source beer! It is based on classic ale brewing
traditions but with added guarana for a natural energy-boost.
Version 1.0 is a medium strong beer (6% vol) with a deep golden red
color and an original but familiar taste.
The South American Guarana beans are a natural source of energy and
health. Their stimulating effect nicely balances the drowsiness that
is associated with beer. (The caffeine contents in each beer, approx.
35 mg, is lower than in a cup of coffee so you shouldn't have to worry
about possible side effects.)
Is it a real beer?
Yes and no. You can't buy it in stores (at least not yet) and by the
time you read this we have probably drank all the beer we brewed in
the first batch. (It tasted good.)
But somewhere in the world someone might be using our recipe right
now, and as long as they publish their version of the recipe they are
free to sell it in a store near you...
How can beer be open source?
The recipe and the whole brand of Our Beer is published under a
Creative Commons license, which basically means that anyone can use
our recipe to brew the beer or to create a derivative of our recipe.
You are free to earn money from Our Beer, but you have to publish the
recipe under the same license (e.g. on your website or on our forum)
and credit our work. You can use all our design and branding elements,
and are free to change them at will provided you publish your changes
under the same license ("Attribution & Share Alike").
Can large companies market Our Beer?
Yes, they are free to use our recipe at will - but they also have to
comply with the licence and publish their version of the recipe under
the same Creative Commons license. This requirement is to keep the
beer "free" so everyone has the freedom to improve the recipe based on
the work of others.
Who are "we"?
We are "Vores Øl Group", a group of students at the IT-University in
Copenhagen and have created Our Beer in collaboration with Superflex
as an experiment in applying modern open source ideas and methods on a
traditional real-world product (beer).
Why not? We all like beer, and as an added bonus there is a legendary
quote used to explain the concept of free software (now usually
referred to as open source software):
"Free software" is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the
concept, you should think of "free" as in "free speech", not as in
We think that our open source beer is a nice twist on this quote, and
we think it is interesting to see if our beer grows stronger in out in
the free and perhaps one day becomes the Linux of beers. Who knows?
Is your recipe in any way uniqe?
Yes and no. According to google.com there is no other "open source"
beer out there (except in fake news). Others have added Guarana or
caffeine in beer, but we haven't found any that is similar to our in
color and taste.

I have been experiencing problems whenever I want to use an alternate
dialup isp instead of my main default one. I use Mandrake 10.1 with kppp
as my dialer. After I have connected to one isp, if I disconnect and
select the second isp, the connection is successfull but sites don't
open up. The kppp accounts are set to delete earlier dns entries so that
everytime there is a fresh entry and the firewall is also flushed but no
luck. If the system is rebooted then I can use the second isp.
Conclusion: Whatever isp is dialled first works, for the next, its a hit
and run case with more failures than success.
Any clues? Any Tips or tricks? How would a regular user like a customer
do it, as it can be done in windows?
