Just coming up for air, Rob, no spare time until the end of next month=20
if we are going to make it until then with the Technos.

of January I'll have some more time to catch up on what's happening on=20

Most welcome to join us for a coffee if you don't mind zigzagging up and=20

Merry Christmas!

I thought the Technos were all gone a few months ago.

Another move Westward, well North west any way. There was i believe a 10 or
15 kg roaster for sale from somewheres around there a couple of months ago,
you were obviously not tempted.

Yup a really nice part of the country, i have actually been over the Takaka
hill a couple of times in the last 12 or so months for work, never found the
time to call in.

Our holiday is going to take us over the Strait this year, but possible that
work will take me your way some time.

All the best for Christmas and the new year.

i've been pretty much not keeping up for the past few months as most
of my time was spent designing and building our new store. now that
we're open and the laptop is back on the roasting counter, i can
browse whilst i roast. supposedly we're to get dsl next week, which
means i might be able to expand my participation a bit. i usually try
to keep track of a.c, the barista guild forum, the roasters' guild
forum, home-barista.com, and the "first rule of fight club" forum. i
used to try to keep up on geek, but just never managed to do it; i
breeze through every six months or so just to check in.

Thanks for the reply Barry, that is helpful. It sounds like the=20
information is not too badly scattered (and I hope it stays that way), =20
apart perhaps from the blogs. I am still trying to decide whether or not=20
these are *my norm*....

Fantastic expression, Cea!

Thanks k, for the blog links, forget about the hours in a day thing,=20

My thoughts on the G3.....LM has lost a lot of ground to the Synessos=20
out there (the traditional LM dealer in NZ started pushing Synessos a=20
long time ago) and I don't understand the big deal about the G3, nice as=20
it may be for us coffeegeeks (and only the ones who can afford it). The=20
ket for the G3 will be terribly small, it took an awful long time to=20
develop and in my opinion LM would have been much better off preventing=20
Synesso on the ket place by being pro-active, they could have read=20
alt.coffee and just do what Schecter/Scace had already figured out years=20
ago, just like Schomer picked up on it.

I think the G3 is some sort of grand gesture towards technology, but=20
from a business viewpoint it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense, to me=20
at least. Good luck to LM getting them out there before this time next=20
year.....

The upside is that you can have it again as the editor's choice at that=20
time, hopefully less controversial! :-)

I interpreted the certification logos on LM's GS3 page as "It will
