Wasted Neurons Wednesday

Wasted Neurons Wednesday is an occasional column that covers dead technologies that I still waste neurons knowing about.

I stick to the IBM PC Compatible world, because otherwise there's no real comparison with modern machines. These are the ghosts in the closet of the modern computer.

vCardSplit

vCardSplit splits vCards.

For some strange reason, many programs will happily export all your contacts into one big file, but then only import the first vCard from a file. If that happens, you need something to split those files - you need vCardSplit!

It splits vCard files. Lots of programs like to export their contacts as one big vCard, but will only import the first contact from a vCard file. So you need a vCard Splitter, and this is it.

It's absolutely free to download and use, and always will be.

About my phone(s)...

A long time ago, I reviewed my last Nokia phone. I concluded that it was good, and I'd miss it.

I moved on to an Android phone - a HTC Desire Z. I had that for eighteen months, and was very happy with it. And I meant to review it when I finished with it, but didn't get around to it because there was something nagging at my mind about just how I'd review it. There were a lot of thoughts to distill down, and I somehow couldn't find the right way to review it.

SMWS Grain Week

Late May was Grain Week at the SMWS. (Yes, this is very late. Sorry.)

The SMWS has always had a progressive streak - despite their name, they've also bottled Irish, Japanese and Welsh malts in the past.

Several years ago, they started bottling grain. This annoyed the traditionalists no end, but has kept me happy and my bank account empty for a while now...

So here we go - ten grains, eight of which were brand new. How could I resist?

Bull

Bull

Not much to say about this one. Saw it, had to grab a photo of it... It is, and always will be, bull.

Transport

Transport

Whilst in a rather damp Wales (Nant-y-derry), I found this nice little scene.

Three things related to the title Transport in this photo. Can you find them all?
