Glenfiddich is my favorite :-)

Last time I visited your beautiful country was in 1983; unfortunately I
didn't see much, except for the hotel and the computer room inside Radio
Suisse (Bern) to try and fix a Tymnet node for the IRC (not Internet
Rely Chat, but International Record Carrier in the days of X.25). Didn't
even get to finish that as after a few hours working on the problem I
was called to go to Hong Kong. My associate stayed & eventually fixed
the problem :-)
