This was the initial version, based on the idea from the Amiga
Bartender program (see background).
The database was slow and offered few possibilities to search. Users
could add their own drinks, but that system didn't work well and
required a lot of post-processing of incoming drinks before they
could be added to the database.

Much was improved during summer and autumn 1995. A lot of new
recipes and features were added:
Restructured data files resulted in higher speed.
Advanced search capabilities:

Further development of this version lasted all winter 1995/96,
and some of the above improvements were not added until later.
