Cedarbrew micro brewery. The chubby hard Stout

Stouts have a long history, and the most famous is Guinness. I am a Guinness fan, prefer the original stuff, but enjoy the drink a lot.

Stout was the first non larger I had, the first that made me realize that not all beer is the same. The smokiness and almost Liquorice in a stout is what makes it special. A lot of the modern micro breweries have steered away of the word stout calling it a porter instead, but that is like calling rose bland de noir which is the same damn thing. 

So how good is the chubby head?  Well quite good and probably a little too morish, I could definitely spend a bit of time getting aquanted with this one. I love the fact that they name their brews after local fish and like darling come in 550ml, so you get a serious drink. 

The smokiness of the stout is not over powering but it is definitely dominant and the Liquorice is subtle and the all round faste is comforting, I did not drink it warm, but believe it would be  great then too, but in winter when it is raining, I suppose I will just have to wait a few months ☺️

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) 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
