Re: Software that makes placemats

During the Emergency at 67 Pall Mall on 25 February 2020, Neil, and perhaps others, asked that the parameter NeckTagsHoleRadius be larger. Currently its default is 42.52pt ≈ 15mm, so a diameter of 3cm. What size is wanted?

Suggestion: 54pt = 19.05mm, so a diameter of 38.1mm. Comment?

People are wider than an A3. If there isn’t room for an A3, there isn’t room for us.

For placemats and seating arrangements are any attendees left-handed?
Will you make them, or should I?

If, after multiple repeats, this becomes more difficult, then we can move on to alternative but related themes such as 'ports for which there is a unicorn note' or possibly 'ports where the last note is five years old or more'...
Genius.

Perhaps that mistake should be credited to David Pressman as the news organisations you ave linked to are simply quoting what he said?
It was my intention to ‘credit’ David Pressman. The news sources were cited only because I could not find online a definitive original.

Re: Apostrophe crimes

There is much that could be said about the Trump impeachment. And I realise that this may well be the least of it.

Forgot to say: great theme. I thoroughly approve.

Over multiple repeats, however, this theme will become more difficult.

Re: 'Bring a port for which there isn't a tasting note on the tasting notes list' - Thursday 12th November 2020, B&F

Yes please, though I am going to struggle.

Might it be fairer to make the theme “Bring a Port for which there isn’t, as of 01 Sept 2020, a tasting note on the tasting notes list”?

Re: A 1970 horizontal, Flights 1-4, Friday 9 October 2020

@JDAW, I'm now a bit confused. Above , you say that the bottle at the 30 Jan 2009 tasting was actually Cachão, linking to a picture of a Cachão bottle. But that picture comes from a separate bottle tasted in April 2009, where the tasting note laments that Cachão was missing from the 30 Jan 2009 tas...
