    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.

    Interesting video! Nice to hear people with mixed business and IT are needed.

    The second person is taking security & safety to the limit, wearing safety glasses inside the computer control room Smiley
