I have created a threaded index of all the articles posted to this list which is available at:http://www.themeyers.org/HomeRoast/The Digest includes messages from Thu, 16 Mar 2000 17:30:43 to Sun, 16 Apr 2000 15:00:18. (There are currently 117 Topics, 541 Messages, 11625 Lines in the digest) The are grouped by Subject line and then sorted by date. To use click on the Blue "Topic:" link. A thread created in the last 7 days is colored in red. A thread with responses in the last 7 days has a red LastModification date. Please respond with comments and or suggestions. Thanks, Craig
At the suggestion of a member of this list, I have modified my script to remove all Email address in the From: line of a posted message. This will keep our Email addresses private. Please note that Email addresses included in the message body will not be removed. - Craig
About he whole name and address thing. Personally, it doesn't matter to me. I'm also certainly not the list police. However.... Some of us are sensitive to the name / address information being made public. It ought to be done by consensus, or at least a majority vote. Tom, I would think, also has a say, or at least may want to say something. He went through some trouble to host this list on a private server vs. one of the free ones. There was quite a debate and some even un-subbed while Tom set up the current server. That being said, the digest is a good thing. On matters of coffee, who went to the SCAA in San Francisco this last weekend? I was there on Sunday in the company of Owen (of alt fame). I meet a few of the people we all talk about or at least read about and in general had a good time. Tom, I didn't get a chance to meet, even though I stood next to the SCAA technical stand from 1:30 to 4:00 on Sunday. What's up with that?

meyercr writes: <Snip> The threaded digest is super -- thanks! About the 'from' field, how about leaving the user-name and deleting just the @isp? That prevents any address-farming, if that's what folks are worried about. W/out the poster's name (which means nothing to anyone but us anyway, and we know us already), reading a thread was a bit... um... lacking in perspective somehow. Carola
I have implemented the suggestion by "CarolaML" on cleaning the From: fields email addresses. I won't make this version available until I get comments from people on the list. If someone doesn't want me to display this information Please let me know! If I hear no complaints, I will wait a week, and then switch over. The script now strips off the hostname part of the Email address. It will use the "Nice" name if it exists. Here are some examples: (1st line is the original From line, second is the "cleaned" result) From: "Robert Cantor" From: Robert Cantor From: Mark From: Mark From: KeithCoffeeMan From: KeithCoffeeMan From: Eric Bear Albrecht From: Eric Bear Albrecht - Craig
People have asked for a complete Threaded Digest. I only have the messages from late February thru now. If someone has the Windows Eudora mailer with a complete .mbx file for HomeRoast, zip it up and send it to me. I will use that to generate the Digest. I can grab all the files from the existing Digest, but they all have the original From line removed.
This looks good to me. Of course these meta-messages will be excluded from the archive, right? ... since we have in the body of the message the parts that would be removed from the headers ...

The web based HomeRoast Digest is back up to date after my vacation. The URL is:http://TheMeyers.org/HomeRoast/index.htm
Oh, my. Isn't this a wonderful thing? I am brand new to this list, and I am fascinated by the HomeRoast Digest. I guess I will make another cup of Malabar Gold and stay up late reading. Thank you! Susan B.
Hello fellow Roasters, There is now a improved version of the web digest available. At the request of some readers I have added a Topic view by last post date (most recent first). This allows you to easily see what has changed most recently. Also there is now a Text Search capability. Simply type in some search text (Ex: Moka Kadir), click on Search and the Topics containing those words will be listed. Note: The search defaults to an "AND" search ("Hit" must match all words) but you can select "OR" ("Hit" must match at least one word). Also very common words are ignored. Enjoy, Craig Ps. This Digest is updated most nights around 10pm EST.
