Taking Pictures of Port

jdaw1 has encouraged us here to insert pictures of bottles, corks and port in our TN's. I am all for this but have 2 questions: 1. Is our current hosting arrangement up to the task in terms of bandwidth etc? 2. Can someone please give me some advice on how to take good clear pictures of glasses of p...

I have thanked jdaw1 for these a few times elsewhere but will repeat it here - thanks, jdaw1

But could we have a smaller picture, please?

Sorry for staying off thread (and feel free to delete our ramblings) but can't you run 2 IE sessions simultaneously and be logged in as KillerB on one and Admin on the other?

I wasn't advocating level pricing, just explaining that because the cost of producing the box and bin label is more than the cost of producing 2 bottles of Vesuvio VP doesn't mean that the value assigned to each by the shipper would be the same.

I'll wager that the cost of making the case and it's trappings is a lot more than the cost of producing two extra bottles! But, as we know, cost of production often doesn't have a direct link to retail price :roll: - I'm sure if shippers sold their VP at cost + a standard profit margin we would all...

jdaw1, Thanks, your post inspired me to use this. I have struggled to think of an online identity. Some find it easy. Alan, for instance, looks like a Bulldog smoking a Cabana.

Alan,

If you buy another 6 pack from Tom you can have 2 per year - one for fun and one to see how it's developing :wink:

We drank some great wines that evening, and I have also had a few NN's ayt offlines. The one I shared with Alan and Alex at Birmingham was definate...

Having tasted it again tonight I will stand by my comments on Morgan's 91. This will keep for many years and probably improve but it is not a blockbuster wine. This one cost me £8. The retail price is around £12 + tax. Not worth waiting really, unless you have lots of them, which I do 88)
