Re: Help needed. Looking for illustrations

Derek,

I found the second image a long time ago on the internet, but didn't make a note about the source. I will try to retrace the beauty ;-). Thanks for all your efforts. I'll keep you informed.

For my iphone i downloaded the free version of TapaTalk, an app which makes reading and reacting (pro-version) on forums a lot easier. A few day's ago fortheloveofport made their forum available under TapaTalk. Are there any plans @ ThePortForum.com to do the same? (Would be great!)

Hi Ronald,

Thanks for your invitation. Sounds great. Please keep me informed about the offline activities. By the way Ton Overmars (http://www.tonovermars.nl/port.html) is just around the corner, so i'll never have to arrive empty-handed at a tasting.
