Topic: This list (17 msgs / 333 lines)
1) From: jim gundlach
In response to some of the recent bashing of people on the list I'd like 
to take time to express a real heart felt thanks to Tom and Maria, I 
accept an e-mail from her as proof that she exists, and those who share 
their coffee experiences on this list.  You have helped to improved the 
quality of life for everyone in this old house near Shorter Alabama.  I 
never would have been able to make a coffee that all of us, including 
three-year-old Tori, look forward to every day without you.
    Again thanks for being there.

2) From: Henry C. Davis
Aside from my old house being in Delaware and my Tori being a
five-year-old, your post eerily reflects my own thinking. I am
hoping the suggestion that Maria is virtual was merely a joke
that fell flat. I also would like to thank those of you on the
list who put up with my sometimes cantankerous arthritic attitude
and have helped me enjoy this hobby (obsession?) more every day.
Despite our differences concerning what makes for good coffee,
and the obviously strong personalities involved, I think this
list shows a level of caring and community that isn't often found
in ordinary hobby associations. Thank you all.

Now I have to go decide if I am going to drink something from
Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, or Uganda - I wish all my difficult
decisions were guaranteed to have a happy result no matter what
face of the die shows itself.... :-)

I must echo Jim's sediments. [grin]  This list gave me the incentive to 
roast coffee and, finally, to get an espresso machine and enter coffee Nirvana.
All lists, and I've owned a passle of them, have up and down times.  They 
will always have times when there is dissent and when people get cranky, 
but that is the nature of the electronic media where we are not face to face.
But, we could never get together face to face as we are so diverse, 
geographically, hence, the great amount of wisdom and good advice that a 
list like this provides.

I think my problem is I am getting the long version of the e-mail 
heading, the post, then lots of unsnipped material (I realize this is 
user-dependent), and then the whole shebang again everything again in 
HTML.
I am downloading Eudora now, and will see if that helps.

You'll need to switch your mode from digest on sweetmarias.com in order to
get the individual emails.  Setup some rules to move them to a folder so
that any other emails aren't lost in the flood.
I use webmail - gmail specifically - and it is fully worth the investment,
even moreso.  And it's free....  Works well if you have high speed internet
available to you all the time...  Yeah, and sometimes I check my email using
my cell phone or PDA too - because it's webmail, and I can...
Sipping more of my Java Government Estate - makes for a Good Morning
America....

The choice of web based email vs POP3 email is the same as the choice of an OS, strictly a matter of 
personal preference.

Another recommendation for online e-mail - Gmail is also helpful at
filtering and so forth, and also keeping e-mails with the same subject line
all linked together.  So whenever I want to look at list e-mails, I click on
the filter's link, and I can see them all, and I don't have to search too
much for the first e-mail in a series, as long as the subject line didn't
change too much.  And since the list e-mails aren't in my regular inbox (I
have them automatically filtered out), the huge number of coffee
e-mails don't hide my regular mail.
And if your computer crashes, or your laptop stolen (happened to me), you
don't lose your e-mail, since it's all backed up online.

P.S. Another benefit of online e-mail is that almost no matter where you are
traveling in the world, you can check your e-mail.  Whether you're visiting
relatives, or in Lima or Bangkok or Cairo, you can check your e-mail.  It's
a little harder in the U.S., since we have fewer internet cafe's, but most
libraries allow checking of e-mail.  For those with a serious e-mail
addiction (myself included) this is a big plus.  :)

About the worst that can be said about gmail is that they scan and
categorize the content of your email (anonymously of course) and use it to
target google ads at you.  It's always funny to see the various coffee
related links next to my emails.  Just don't click them if you don't wanna
;)

I still like Google better than the bright blinky color stuff on Yahoo.com.
But then that's me.  :)

I selected the SPAM folder (on GMAIL) so I could delete the spam that was
moved there.  The top banner had an advertizement for "French Fried Spam" -
boy are they creative or what?

Another plug for gmail - when I move something from the spam folder to my
inbox, saying that it's "not spam" with the button they give, Gmail
remembers that it's not spam.  Very nice!

Just one more reminder that Google isn't a content company, it's an
advertising company.  Every word you type goes into the magic analyzer and
out comes ...
   an ad.
So it goes.

Larry.
Meet the Piper.
in this life...
You pay the piper...
One Piper, Google, puts up Ads...
Not so bad a price to pay for free email, with all the benefits...
So I love it - and I skip the ads...

Hey folks, Google puts up ads.  They also throw in ...
  Documents
  Spreadsheets
  Search
  Finance
  Presentations
  Images
  Videos
  Email
    ... and lots lots more ...
Did I say FREE yet?  So they throw up Ads...
Perhaps you did hear about Google Helicopter yet?  It's one of their newest
online offerings, but you have to get an invite for it.  It's a stealth
surveillance web-app where you can passively utilize stealth technologies to
monitor your property, and particularly follow persons of interest.  This is
one of the benefits of the Google cookie snaplet, the DLL code that tracks
your actions to identify trends and actions, separate communications and
signatures of those with whom you interact.  I have been part of the Beta
test for this, and like the others, find it just one more benefit of using
Google's newest technologies.
Someday they'll do more for coffee roasting, but for now, protecting my
security is enough for me...
