Ray, I don't understand your message?  How does this relate?

Man- I apologize. I wasn't trying to play games. A big pulse of sunspots
must have swept over. I thought I was immune, but it must have induced a
spike in the babbitt in my cranial cavity-
EBAY IS OK- I was about to delete all in the Spam bit box after I checked to
be sure the Google robot hadn't been over zealous. One message looked like
it was from eBay bearing serial addresses including the List and several
individuals on the List.
The Subj line was something like "eBay security warning" with a big red
Google warning flag pasted below it- "Sender may not be who they pretend to
be- Do Not Respond"
The robot was right- it didn't have my eBay Handle, and wanted to update my
eBay account information. It had the tell-tale misspellings, grammatical
stuttering and homophones. Straight to the Bit Box and I thought I'd put out
a PSA on the List.
BTW- the Z&D is probably ideal, but how is Brown going to drive aboard to
deliver it?
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!

Speaking of Ebay,
I just need to vent to my "coffee family."  I was just about to score
on another  Olympia Cremina for an outrageous sum of $105.00, and the
jerks went and pulled the item!  I didn't think they could do that!
It is amazing how the sharks are picking up on these machines.  They
are advertising the older machines like they are just like the brand
new ones.  Prices are going out of sight again.  They are back up in
the $500.00 plus range for most of them.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
Brown will be delivering it to my house I am going to be home one more
time before we are setting sail for fun and sun in the gulf.
No worries about the eBay fraud warning I was worried I had done
something that had triggered alarms in everybody's email....whew!

eBay selelrs can pull an item for any reason until the sale is completed or
the auction ends and a winner declared.
I lost out on a 1970's Les Paul version of an Aspen (I like Aspens) to go
with some of my others.  The guy relisted for $1,200.  I wished him every
success as he held the guitar until his descendents inherit the thing...

I hate to say this, but I get consistently better shots from my $35 
Cremina than I do from my Silvia..I have no idea why...
The folks on ebay are comparing those old machines to the new >$2000 
machines. I got another one for $50 in a thrift shop. I wouldn't pay 
$500 to $700 that they are getting, although I was told that these 
machines went for $800 back when they were new...

Angelo,
You are a lucky guy to have found two of them for that price.  They
import less than 50 of these a year.  They do make very good espresso.
 Personally, I am moving toward making my Cremina my primary machine.
If the proof is in the shot, $2,000.00 isn't a bad price for espresso
that is better than what comes from a $1500.00 prosumer machine.
However if I had $2,000.00 a LaSpaziale S1 would be sitting on my
counter.

Les.
The machines I had (sold one to my friend for what I paid for it, and 
he rebuilt it for $90 more) were from about '89 or so. Still, when 
new, they were selling for ~ $800...
I also have a La Cimbali MicroCasa which uses a spring. I prefer the 
Cremina... I like the control/responsibility of the shot. It's more 
fun than just pushing a button :-) ...

I bought my Cremina new from Zabar's for $350 in 1983. Still waiting to
upgrade. Any century now... :-).
