Thanks very much. I feel like Rumsfeld: "There are known knowns, that is there are things we know we know; there are known unknowns, things we know we don't know; and there are unknown unknowns, things we don't know we don't know." Probably the smartest thing he ever said. I'll check out home-barista. T.D. On 8/30/07 1:56 PM, "miKe mcKoffee" wrote: <Snip>
It's not a real mystery . After you learn some basics, shot pulling, is an art. One gets a feel for it. Don't be afraid to pour a shot down the sink. Life is too short for inferior coffee.
<Snip> It may be the smartest thing Rumsfeld ever said, but he didn't come up with it. So let's not give him any more credit than he deserves. When I was doing satellite development for the USAF 20+ years ago we were talking about known-knowns,known-unknowns, and unknown-unknowns. The latter being referred to as the dreaded unk-unks.
