RJ Tarpley's Coffee Company Launches Range of Mozilla Coffees

Friday August 22nd, 2003

Ronald J. Tarpley writes: "RJ Tarpley's Coffee Company has dedicated a special selection of gourmet coffees to help benefit The Mozilla Foundation. Owner, Ron Tarpley is a self described 'Mozilla Geek' and heavy coffee drinker so the marriage between the two seemed natural. Mozilla users simply go to www.rjtarpleys.com/mozillacoffee.html and select a coffee. All of the 'Lizard Coffees' are 100% Arabica beans and are carefully micro-roasted in small batches. RJ Tarpley's will split half the profit on all orders directly to The Mozilla Foundation. Tarpley points out that if someone would like to choose another selection from his site that is not on the Mozilla page to simply put a note in the comments to support Mozilla and The Foundation will get the credit. 'I think this will be a great fundraiser for the foundation because I know that the folks who spend a lot of time on the computer drink a lot of coffee. Mitchell [Baker], Bart [Decrem] and the rest of the people runnning The Foundation will do a great job, so I hope this program will help them out.' Drink Up!"

I like this. Last night i was dreaming i was a rock star and i made a rock video that was starred at MTV and i was wearing a mozilla shirt... Mozilla needs big support from popular fanatics, like Apple does.

I bet you know family members/friends who do, if not, bring a bag to the office for your coffee drinking co-workers .... Another opportunnity for introducing them to Mozilla.

Am placing my order after I press POST COMMENT button

Too bad it's not for us non-Americans. Maybe a German coffee shop soon, like was done for the T-shirts? Anyway, is there some place on the Mozilla website where we can find logos, icons, banners, fan art and so on about Mozilla? That way, even non-Americans could contribute to the general war effort.

Ooops, I'm sorry. Of course, the United States do not own the whole continent. I should have used 'United Staters'.

It'd be nice if someone posts here about the quality of the coffee. Not that I drink any, but I'd like to know anyway...

Mozilla blends seem to be the cheaper blends around the place. Drink up! (Easy for me to say...)

#12 Web site render problem?

The RJ Tarpley web site does not render correctly with Mozilla 1.4 on my Win2K system. It does render correctly with IE6.5. Does anyone else see this?

Can you describe the problem? It looks fine on rudimentary poking by my FB 0.6.1 patched version.

The site has a left-side panel with a brown background and text in white with links to other pages in the site. A panel to the right has black text on white background displaying the main text for the page.

On IE 6.0 this displays correctly, on my system Mozilla 1.4 does not display the left panel link text and the right panel text overlaps the brown background region. This makes for black text over brown background that is difficult to read and no access to the links.

Is the text in the left panel made up of images? I wonder if I have somehow blocked the image(s) from downloading, leading to the incorrect display. Images in the right panel (like the logo at the top) are OK, though.

It is certainly possible I have some custom setting that causes this problem, though I can't think of what it would be. I almost never see mis-rendered pages when browsing which is why this is notable for me.

BTW The IE version I used to verify should be 6.0.2800.1106, not 6.5.

I've tried this from a different Win2K system running the same version of Mozilla, and it renders correctly. So, the problem is something with my customized settings.

I'll take this thread elsewhere since it now appears to be off-topic.

#23 Mozilla NAME on coffeee bags?

by peterlairo <Peter@Lairo.com>

Sunday August 24th, 2003 5:15 AM

Reply to this message

I'd like to send some mozCoffeee to friends and family; but ONLY if the bag of coffee also says "mozilla" on it.

Do the shipped bags of (paper filter) coffee have the mozilla name and logo on them?

PS. I believe it is even more important to get the mozilla name out there, than to donate to the foundation. ;)
