Re: Software that makes placemats

All this is conditional in being able to implement StreamPlot. Subject to which, do we want the average charge to be zero, or to have the inward flow from all charges being positive?

Also, is Phil’s plan too symmetrical. Does the rigorous symmetry cause non-interestingness?

Re: Software that makes placemats

A suggestion for alternate charge-plan to try and regularise: - For every circle, inscribe a hexagon (possibly slightly smaller diameter). - Assign charge to hexagon points (instead of circle centres), all with +1 at top point, then alternating -1/+1 around the hexagon. In any square or hexagonal a...

Gammon, egg and chips sounds like an honest and solid option, thank you.
An excellent choice, with excellent reasoning. I’m delighted that our new recruits are of the highest calibre.

And I’ll assume that the failure to request black pudding was merely a newbie slip, soon to be corrected.

Re: Quinta: do Portal; dos Muros

So is Portal becoming a multi-quinta blend, of Quinta do Portal, Quinta dos Muros, and mybe others?

If yes, why does its website still prominently say “Quinta do Portal”? If not, why is Quinta dos Muros so heavily labelled with “Portal”?

Dia and I are planning to be there from 12 to set up. Any help during the afternoon would be greatly appreciated - particularly if we are doing this blind. Sorry work — always work.

Any reason to print the 8 per A4?
Perhaps mistakenly I had envisaged the labelling of wrapped bottles — the organiser to pronounce.
I will label each bottle.
The document updated to remove the 2×4 per /A4, but keep the 5×13 per /A4.

We have kindly been sent, amongst many other bottles, both Portal 2017 and Portal Quinta dos Muros 2017. A question about their relationship has been posed in the thread Quinta: do Portal; dos Muros.
