In reverse order:
It's been quite humid here for a couple of weeks.  Moderate temps mean 
we've had the house open so everything has that vague dampishness to it 
- including the CR.  The last four times I've roasted I let the machine 
preheat for a couple of minutes to drive out moisture.  All I can say is 
"preheating is now my SOP".  This morning's Monkey and Puro Scuro roasts 
hit second crack a good minute earlier than they typically do and the 
aromas from the roaster were much nicer than prior roasts have produced.
Is there any roasting benefit to be had in using a small piece of foil 
or foiled tape to seal the gap between the chaff basket and the roasting 
chamber?  Not the exhaust port through which the chaff gets sucked, just 
the little 1/8" space beneath the inner curved edge of the basket. 
After every roast I have fully as much chaff in the screen UNDER the 
basket as there is IN the basket...

Is Harvey as reliable as Brown?  He's a cheaper date than Brown and 
performs faster too *winkwink*.  Plus Harvey gets to my house every day 
at the same time shortly after lunch - no worries about my husband 
catching me with Harvey the way he's caught me before with Brown!
