Wells banana bread beer.

I find it fascinating that people go on about fair trade and organic, and then use flavourant. Surely complete lifecycle is no long a myth?

Anyway I did not buy this beer because it had fair trade bananas or because Wells use their own mineral Water to make it, i bought it because it sounded diferent. How can something taste like banana bread, good old Mom's (or country bakes to be honest) banana bread? Well it cannot. the banana flavourant is the dominant banana flavour, hands down. Fake banana flavourant tastes like caramel banana rather than good old banana. Why use "Fair trade" bananas and then add fake falvourant? I know juicing bananas does not produce much juice, but surely you can get flavour using a beter method.

Anyway enough about flavourant!

What is the beer like? Well not like banana bread! At least not any I have had. there is some caramel banana and it is interesting but it is interesting knowing that 98% or more of our body is space, and yet I am still identified by the none space.

Aroma: 8 - caramel tones
Flavour: 7 - beer
After taste: 8 - fake banana sweets
Morishness: 5 - you need to think about it
Will buy again: 6  
Total: 34

Actually scores lower than it thought it id not quite s disagreable as that.

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.

Programmatically send email in Access using VBA and Outlook

When I first wrote my early Access system I used a function I setup in Outlook and then I called that. On upgrading I had a few problems with the older method then I found some help on the MSDN website here... and the related video. The first thing to do before starting the code is go into access, access the VBA (press Ctl+G) then click on "Tools" The "References" and then make sure you scroll down to "Microsoft Outlook ..." the version there will be determined by what version you have installed. This the code that I ended up with after looking at the site above Private olApp As Outlook.Application Private olNameSpace As Outlook.NameSpace ' The basics of this from MSDN site ' Private Sub InitOutlook()  ' Initialize a session in Outlook   Set olApp = New Outlook.Application   'Return a reference to the MAPI layer   Set olNameSpace = olApp.GetNamespace("MA
