"Taking a page out of Lexmark playbook, the Keurig company, famous for it's one-cup coffee making system, now comes with new and improved 100% DRM. Apparently, Keurig is upset over re-usable third-party 'coffee pods' which allow the consumer to escape the Keurig throw-away models which carry a retail price 5% to 25% more. Keurig's CEO, Brian Kelly referred to the move as 'game-changing performance.' Perhaps this will finally be the year of Linux on the Coffe Maker?"

    I've come to make my coffee one of two ways, depending on time constraints. A few years ago I bought a Cabela's stove top percolator for camping. In trying it out at home I discovered it made hotter, stronger, better coffee than any drip coffee maker. I get up to feed the cats at 6:30. I put the burner for the coffee pot on low, toss three scoops of coffee in the basket and go back to bed. By the time an hour passes it has been perking a while and is ready. You can let it go longer if you like stronger coffee. Old school coffee but better by a long shot than driving somewhere for some mediocre chain coffee.
    Even more old school, I make a form of cowboy coffee if I'm in a hurry. I've saved the drip baskets from the coffee makers I've tossed over the years (for backpacking). If I'm in a hurry I boil water in the coffee pot, toss in a couple scoops of coffee and let it boil for about three minutes. I stack two baskets and the one from the percolator on top of a cup and pour the boiled coffee through them to filter out the worst of the grinds. Makes good, strong coffee. Just don't drink the last bit in the cup unless you want a mouthful of grinds...
