Topic: Waiting to be cleared (34 lines)
1) From: John Abbott
Hi Gang,
	Apparently my mail can be seen, even though I cannot receive from the
list yet.  I've just had a phone call from Marv (neighbor and fledgling
coffee roaster) who tells me that I should advise the world that I'm
alive.  I am alive!
	I've missed the list, and wonder who is talking us all into buying what
bean this week. While I was using the HotTop I went through a lot of
coffee and will be placing an order as soon as Tom & Maria open the site
up again.  So what's hot? 
	I don't know what communication is going on with the list - but the
HotTop seems to be in need of some good QA/QC  The troubles are all
correctable, but the temperature control tends to vary greatly with
voltage and unit.  My unit dumps about 20 grams of beans under the drum
near the heating element for a 250 gram lot.  The motor alignment seems
to be a major problem (and is with mine) and it can all be corrected
with motor mount shims. The dialog from Baratza and Chang Yue Industries
seems to have stopped. So I have no idea what's going on. I have my unit
in the storage shed, packed to ship.  Lest it be all negative - my unit
produced incredible roast after incredible roast. If they fix the
problems they've got a winner.
Glad to be back 
Happy Cupping
John
