    Where is Dimal?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Am I the only one to have noticed one of our stalwarts and most knowledgeable and helpful members of this forum Dimal, had not posted for almost 3 weeks?

    I certainly hope we have not seen the last of him, as far as Coffee Snobs is concerned he is pretty much one of the last of the Mohicans, his coffee knowledge is vast and spot on and he is never tardy helping others.

    Certainly hope we see him here again soon.

    Yelta, also noticed the absence after a bit of robust discussion between strong personalities. I was hoping he was just on holiday. Mal has definitely been a wealth of information, funny just before his absence I was going to send a PM to thank him for mentioning nutating, had changed the quality of my coffee (also noticed nutating, like everything coffee related, has plenty of supporters and detractors!).

    I for one hope we see Mal back after his sabbatical.

    Mal certainly has been one of the stalwarts of CS - I'm sure he answered some of my (very basic) questions along with Thundergod back when I joined about a decade ago.

    I hope he'll be back!

    Yes, hope he comes back.

    I am not sure if it was on here or somewhere else I read about nutating, did not know what it meant so googled it. I am sure it has made a difference too. Not so much channeling with a naked P/F.

    Every one has an opinion, it is over to readers/posters to work out what to take notice of.

    For me, when I started kart racing I wrote down everything everyone said, whether I thought it made sense or not.
    I figured I would sort out the wheat from the chaff when I learnt a bit more.

    Later lots of things fell into place.

    I think it is the same with coffee, so much to learn, and it does not all make sense at the start, but gradually it comes a bit clearer.
    So in some ways, while it can be confusing, the more opinions and ideas the better.
