Re: Software that makes placemats

It is kind of a neat feature in the PDF, but in my use no one would ever use it. Attendees at my events will use the paper, and have other means of finding the relevant threads on forums, etc.

Re: Software that makes placemats

I really stirred this pot it seems. Requests have improved the software. I need to understand the request and its generality before knowing what to do with it. • Do you know that there will be on ‘4’ beer? • Do you know that there will be on ‘4A’ beer? • Is there any level of the hierarchy of speci...

Re: Software that makes placemats

I really stirred this pot it seems. In my beer use case, we don't need score sheets, aren't really concerned about drinker names ... Detailed notes have already been recorded and entered into the competition software for the 300 or 1000 beers judged. (There are a couple different programs out there ...

Re: Software that makes placemats

I've used this software many times, and as a programmer I love it. I also have considered trying to adapt it for another use, but the time to tweak output seems a little prohibitive to me. Here is my use case: Best of show judging at a beer competition. All beers are first judged in their individual...

Re: 2011 Horizontal - London, 23rd April 2051

I've got Vieira de Sousa, Morgadio da Calçada (Niepoort), and Barão de Vilar to offer up, although these might be better suited to an earlier tasting. I have others as well, but these were my more unique offerings thus far. I tried to mark my calendar, but it seems Google Calendar has a bug as it m...

Re: Just dropping in from the other side of the pond

Thanks! Yeah yeah, size doesn't matter. And I know some of you with many more bottles. But I have to share this anyway. And it shows one of my other passions. Left wall is Port, shelves have a variety, but mostly Port, and the half bottle rack is a good mix. (A good mix being mostly Port with some S...

Just dropping in from the other side of the pond

Some of you may know me from one of those other Port web sites under my real name Eric Menchen. I've read some of the threads here going a long way back, but can't keep up with one board, let alone two or more (other hobbies too, like making beer). But Julian alerted me to a tasting I was interested...
