    And, btw, would a serving of espresso in Europe be referred to as a "shot?" I think the term "shot" has its origins in the world of alcoholic beverages but, in any case, would never mean less than an ounce.

    Hi Steveng,
    I can't speak for the rest of Europe but to us in the UK a shot is simply "a dose" and readily applied to many things... You might get your "shots" from the doctor before a foreign holiday for instance!
    I can understand the link to alcohol but wouldn't simply mean 1fl oz. Asking a barman for a shot of whiskey would probably prompt him to ask "large or small?"

    Why is that?

    Sometimes people dig up very old threads, and then people start responding to some of the posts that are within the thread. Sometimes, the threads are so old that the people who posted so long ago are not here anymore. If someone responds to their post or asks them a question, they won't get a response.

    So, it is important to pay attention to the date of the original post to a thread. When you see that the original post is very old, then it is usually better to start a new thread and ask your questions or make a comments there. However, if the thread is old and you see that it is recently active, then feel free to post whatever you want.

    I hope this makes sense now.
