Rick,
I'm trying. I'll try to remember to toggle the html thing and make sure it's
sent in plain text. The problem before was that I attached too many of the
posts I was replying to, it went through when I deleted them. By the way my
sent messages list show my last one at 3k only, I think the limit is now
9k..
I roasted 10 ounces, at least, of Pacamara, this afternoon from cold start
in the HotTop. (I need to weigh more accurately to get the exact weight, my
present scale is marked in 20 gram increments) but I am certain it was over
10 ounces and it didn't even get to the first beep..
You say 10 ounces is "no record" ? that's good news! Does that mean roasting
2 pounds in thirds will be no problem with any bean??
10.582 ounces? mm not sure, if I divide 32 ounces by 3 I get 10 ounces plus
1/3 of 2 ounces;
.666 -- too evil for you? ;>) ? In fact it might have to be a little more,
because I think Sweet Maria puts in an extra gram or two now and then ;>)

my!
I notice that you're posting in HTML, Ted, and one thing to know about that
is that html posts are larger than plain text.  Tom has implemented a
maximum post size limitation of 14k (maybe smaller now) so last week I
replied to an html post (which Outlook automatically replies to in html) and
my post never showed up.  I reposted four times and finally got a bounce
message that my post was rejected because it was too big.  I looked at the
size and it was 16k.  I converted it to plain text and it dropped to 11k.
I'm thinking that maybe Outlook decided to include a font.
 
The message of yours that I'm replying to now is 8k, by the way.
 
As to roasting 10.666 ounces, don't you mean 10.582 ounces?  :-)
 
You're right about having to roast from cold to get the big payloads.

P.S. 300g will be no record!
