1) From: The Scarlet Wombat
My Solis sl-90 is on death's doorstep, so a friend in BC wrote this 
Shakespearian style ode to it, thought y'all would enjoy it.

Ode to a dying espresso machine
Ah, Espressy, I knew thee well.
By what benevolent gods did I drink from thy dark ambrosia 'ere long, or
short?
By what squirt of fate did the deus machina steam up to elysian fields of
shade covered coffee bean paradise, eternally ripening then roasting to
perfection?!
Whose mischief was this, that bereft I must seek an unknown source with
offerings of much gold for coffee?!
Beany one, grinder and friend combined.  Steamy brewer, I knew thee well and
honoured thy electrical input.  Didst thou relegate thyself to the
streetside dustbin for freedom from us mortal plugins?  Wilt thou in
everlasting peace find a barge off New York from which to settle into the
deep sea to play with the fishes forevermore?  Brave one, we hail thee.

What the fuck please take me off this list I`ve tried and I`m a roasting
fool but what gives with talk of everything but roasting?

Just in time to NOT enjoy the pleasure of not having his emails to the 
list bounce.
We hardly knew ye.

We might try to explain Coran but from the above its clear that you
wouldn't understand.  Since you don't have the brain power to notice -
take a look at the bottom of the email for the link to remove yourself. 
Since we cannot remove you - I have set a filter on my computer to
handle your trash.
