Young's Double Chocolate Stout

Perhaps I will perhaps I won't. I have been enjoying specialist or micro brewery (although some I think are not so micro) beers for a while now and have not kept a log. In an attempt to help me un fog my mind I'm gonna try write some thoughts on each wheni remember them.

The first one to move me to do this (though far from the best) is the young' Double Cholocate Stout. My daughter is a chocolate lover (we'll I am too, but she was with me when I went to my favourite outpost of beer in Claremront Liquor City), so I choose this knowing that stout/porter is one of the types of beer I like. It was a little on the steep side, a little below R50 so I only took one.

So is there a double Cholocate taste, well yes, but it is subtle. I think it is called double chocolate since it has chocolate malt, and chocolate flavoring in it. The stout taste does dominate it is a smooth beer with good smokiness and then a little of the chocolate taste comes through. It is not as gassy as the famous stout of world record proportions but it is gassier than the micro brewed porters I have had from Wild Clover And British old engine oild. I prefer the a lack dog from Wild clover breweries it is far more drinkable.

All in all aromatically it is sweet but subtle so 6/10 and Flavours are good but not over powering so 8/10 after taste has the chocolate so also 8/10 morishness is about 6/10 so total 7/10.

Aromas: 6
Flavours: 8
Aftertaste: 7
Morishness: 6
Will get again: 6
Total:  27

Fixing winmail.dat problem - specifically in Quickbooks

For months we have had problems with attachments from Quickbooks. Having looked down many avenues I think we have found a fix or few: (See below for update) Here are a few websites that help out: Microsoft Outlook/Exchange MS-TNEF handling (aka "Winmail.dat", "Win.dat", or "Part 1.2" problem of unopenable email attachments) http://news.office-watch.com/t/n.aspx?a=716 KB958012 : When you use Outlook 2007 to send an e-mail message, the recipient of the message sees an attachment that is called Winmail.dat Essentially the summary is that there is a problem with Outlook trying to force Rich Text Format. so you need to turn that off.

Bitcoin / Cryptocurrency – what is it and how can I benefit

What is it I started investigating Bitcoin when it was worth just over $1000 a bitcoin. I was interested in what it was and how it worked. A lot of people are saying we missed the boat, but I believe that everyone should at least try put a little money in now, or at least use a faucet (see below) to make a little micro-currency. You can read a Wiki article about bitcoin and its history etc. But what you need to know is that it is a currency, that is independent of country. No one really knows who invented the concept of a cryptocurrency since the person who published the paper used a nom de plume. All new cryptocurrencies work more or less the same way as Bitcoin. So as I explain below I interchange these terms. Bitcoin is the original cryptocurrency. How Bitcoin works The currency releases a coin based on a mathematical formula. There will never be more than 21 million bitcoins (other cryptocurrencies do not work like this). Each bitcoin can have divided into one hundred mil
