Re: Software that makes placemats

The dipole example looks really sharp. Looking forward to seeing it in some placemats. I don’t like it as much as the examples with isolated poles. YMMV. For those wanting something like that, I did it in a slightly complicated way — numbers could have been used instead of formulae. /Droplets true ...

Re: Software that makes placemats

Just a thought on a small modifier you could make to this package. Consider a dipole charge structure, (i.e. a closely spaced +ve and -ve charge, perhaps hidden in some text?) and you'd have magnetic dipole field lines! Sorry, forgot to report. The structure of DropletsCharges has been changed to o...

Re: Cockburns 1878

I’d be astonished if it‘s genuine. If it is, it must have come recently from Cockburn’s cellars. When bought? Show me the paperwork.

To me the original don't look like sperm, which have a bulbous head and long wiggly tail. I prefer the original Fully agree, but significantly many seem not to. Which can be simplified to d = 2/(10^⅓ - 1) Is the surdish denominator a simplification? Maybe — tastes differ. An observation; you have c...

Re: 1967 Cockburn

Ck67, decanted 13:00 (an extra from CMAG’s collection — thank you).

Pink, 30% opaque. Not a perfect Ck67 — this being thin, dominated by heat, with artificial sweetener.

Adams ’66, decanted noon. Red-red-pink, 30% opaque. Palate not excellent, the dominant flavour being black Maynards wine gums.

GC66, decanted 15:45. Red, 40% opaque. Unlike the other ’66s, as if not from this set. A dark meatiness, perhaps turkey leg, with long sweetness. Soft. In this company strange, but liked.

That had been fantastic: large red-fruited perfectly soft mature Port. But at table, in my first glass, and in a substitute, it had maraschino cherries, saccharine swee...

Later, peppery heat appeared — not detrimentally.
