I've been on the list for over 4 years, and I've just not been
able to figure out how to configure my email reader to either
render the mixed html/text or totally disallow it.  
( I subscribe to the digest)
It is such a difficulty to have to ferret out the few text lines from
the godawful number of lines of html or worse...raw image data...
What do others do to solve this problem ?
would it be possible to post a list-mom message ever so often
to ask folks to :
1.  please post only text messages
2.  please edit out any un-necessary part of the original post
3.  please do not attach images
4.  please be kind to members who complain only once every 4 years :)
happy 'labor' day !

I will skip the standard advice that is normally given "to switch to gmail etc" as I suspect you ae not the 
least bit interested in that approach.
I see that you are using CTM PowerMail ver. 5.5.2 also I see that the latest version of this program is 
v5.5.3.  If it were me I would go to the CTM PowerMail website and dig in the information there for HTML 
filtering.  It is possible to filter out all of the HTML and V cards etc but each program is a little different.

I will go with the more standard advice...
+  would it be possible to post a list-mom message ever so often
to ask folks to :
+  1.  please post only text messages
no...  Sorry, many people benefit from highlighting, etc.
+  2.  please edit out any un-necessary part of the original post
no...  we'll leave it to people to select what they wish to reply to -
though I do understand your concern...  It's just hard to get completely
inside someone else's mind to the point that you know better than they of
what they should or should not retain...
+  3.  please do not attach images
no...  images can be very helpful
+  4.  please be kind to members who complain only once every 4 years :)
yes...  hopefully you will understand the kindness embedded in the above...
Rich is correct -there must be switches and configurables in your email
reader that could make it more in tune with the way you like to receive
email...
But - have you considered a separate email reader to use only with the
coffee list?  Could be GMAIL like I do, or any other email reader...  By
separating out this list email to a different application, you won't get
your other box clobbered, and you can then attenuate it to best fit your
habits...
OR, get a DEC PDP-11 with appropriate software, then ask everyone to change
their habits to support your way...
Wishing you good brew, and email sometime,
Brett

WOW - PDP-11
That brings back memories.
It would keep one so busy flipping switches, that HTML wouldn't be much of a
concern.
Much coffee drinking would be required.

don't forget unclogging the punch card reader for the advanced models of 
the PDP-11  or letting the slightest breeze hit it and it sounds like a 
clanging beast as all the relays start clattering in the mainframe.  ahh 
I remember the days, but a good cup of coffee was a must to be honest.  
When the demons were let loose and you were trying to get the darned 
thing to boot up again, you'd need something to calm your nerves, or at 
least let you turn your attention elsewhere for a few seconds to keep 
from rolling the thing out the nearest door and to the nearest 
stairway.... not to mention coffee kept one focused on those long days.

Well, Michael, I blew it already, by posting a smiley in my last message. P=

Obviously, this is only a problem that happens with your current 
grinder, so you need a new one.
Or, maybe it's the roaster - time to buy/build the next 
model.  Sounds like you've got great justification -- you're doing it 
for your wife .
Of course, it could be that you're using this as an opportunity to 
"secretly serve Taster's Choice to the patrons of this fine 
restaurant to see if they notice a difference."  [Younger list 
members may not remember these TV ads.]  Fortunately, she notices the 
difference so you get to continue home roasting coffee.
Back in the real world, here's a thought:  You could get some 
chicory, so that when you forget and let the water boil, you can add 
a little chicory to brighten the taste.  SM occasionally has (or had) 
an already-roasted French Chicory available, but it's not in the 
coffee list at present.

I am sure I will, Sandy.  Even now, I am laughing at how the roast 
really went, and I am drinking the result of it - only 13 hours 
later, but wow, is it good.
All of the promises of this little bean are true, it rocks and 
rocks.  I can't wait until it rests fully.  And as Les points out, it 
may be some time until we have a good Jamaican on his end.  I am glad 
to hear that the nervousness will leave me and my roasts. Actually, 
with as well as things went last night, I feel good.  And with how 
this bean tastes, well, it is more than I understood it to be.
All the best,
Stephen

Almost all of the Yemeni coffees I've encountered need a lot of front end
preparation. Out of a cup of green beans there's always a good palm full of
cull. Additionally I ease up on the heat application a bit. The roast
usually ends near the higher end temperatures I look for but you don't have
to be as aggressive with the little guys.

Hey thanks!
Nice touch to get all the emails sent back to me for my perusal...
I have taken the liberty to remove all but the Table of Contents.
I trust that your comments, seemingly missing, are the same whether or not I
re-read all the emails, again...
OTOH, maybe you are trying to comment on each of the emails, and I didn't
pick it up?
OR - and I think this is the case - you wanted me to mention GMAIL because
of the way it threads emails for you, keeps it out of your other email box,
and doesn't load up your hard drive.  (Note - google will try to advertize
based on what is on teh page - they gotta get ya somehow)
Jubilation!!!
