Topic: Sandy's espresso machine, (5 msgs / 96 lines)
1) From: Sandy Andina
As to the Quickmill LaCora, as long as I don't leave it on overnight  
and I steam right after (not during) pulling a shot, yes. She's  
behaving just fine.
But I gave up on the Livia 90A and its putative replacement Magister  
MS-40---Shop Espresso doesn't seem to know its @$$ from its elbow and  
my time and sanity are worth more than the $250 I gave them to fix the  
Livia and its value in its state of disrepair.  I think they have  
cashflow problems, have already cannibalized Livia for parts and are  
like the proverbial turnip unable to yield blood should I manage to  
get them to answer the phone or e-mail were I to demand my money and/ 
or machine back.  It's been over a year, and it's just not worth the  
time and aggravation to pursue them any further.

I know its just stereotypes speaking, but I've never heard of a lawyer
giving up so easily!
Don't let those thieves have it for anymore parts-- get it back from them
and sell it as is. Or at least drop me a line I'll pay for shipping and try
to fix it up my use....

4) From: Sandy Andina
They're very close to going under--place is always padlocked, and when  
I've been there it's been a filthy mess--parts all over the place,  
dust, paint flakes from the ceiling, just the owner and his not-too- 
swift son.  Never answer their phones, either.  I have done a lot of  
debt collection cases over the years--and one skill I've learned is to  
be able to discern when the point of diminishing returns has been  
reached.  There comes a point when a lawyer needs to realize that even  
partial recovery of debt is either unlikely or so partial that it  
doesn't even approach the expense involved in pursuing it.

Sandy,
If you get anything back, let me know. I rebuilding one of my Faema's for a
freind moving to Chicago. I may have fun taking a crack at it.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
