No quick way to know if someone has replied to your post other than going back to the board frequently and clicking on the reply button at the top - If I am not reminded to go check something - it probably won't happen.

Follow the PROFILE link at the top of the page, then "Notifications and Email" under "Modify Profile".  Check "Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic."

I have checked several of the categories to get an e-mail on when there is a new topic - I will get one e-mail from each category - but unless I follow the new link - nothing more will come from that category - and with 5-10  categories checked I tend to forget which ones I went to check thus I quit getting emails from several of them.

In the same list of checkboxes, uncheck "Receive reply notification only for the first unread reply."  At least I think that will get you what you want -- I'm still experimenting myself.

I also use the thick blue "chemical safe" gloves that go up to mid forearm (I got them at HD--I can't remember if they're PVC, or Nitrile, or what) to prevent skin exposure during the equipment dunking and transfer process.

You really think the stuff (at proper ratio) is that bad? I can see with iodophor (fake tan /jk) but I'm surprised with starsan. I figure if I dip a finger in the wort or starter then it's no biggie - I've been sanitized.

I sanitize my hands with the stuff all the time when working on the cold side.  No ill effects yet.  And without any brain damage-amage-amage-amage-amage ...

I’ve seen some forums where there are multiple feeds to choose from. For instance, if you could somehow satisfy the earlier request for unread “beer related” topics, if we could just get an RSS feed for "beer related” topics, too, that would be great.

There seem to be RSS feeds for each board; they're just not advertised.  Appending
to the end of the URL of whichever board I'm interested in gives me a board-specific feed.

The RSS feed would be more useful if it contained the full text of each post.  I don't know anything about SMF, but it looks like Maximum post length is the appropriate setting.
