      As a Dutchman, I feel it's my duty to point out that you misspelled Heineken in the title. :O

      I dunno, lots of our threads are about IT (particularly videos), and you'll notice a large presence of Beer (except Jan '06)

      Unfortunately that's all I shot. I'll have to find out what the name of the software is. Sorry, didn't catch that.

      In the UK a lot of European bear is actually brewed in London and gives you a stonking hangover. You have to buy it imported to get the decent real stuff. So this Heineken is about as Dutch as the Queen's whatnots.
