I don't have one and probably won't be buying one. I do my kneading by 
hand. I have been using sour dough starter lately for most of my bread. 
Whole Meal and Herb primarily. I like the fresh baked taste and it really 
isn't all that hard. I have started letting the dough rise before I 
download a mail packet. Then I read mail while the dough does it's thing.

The sour dough newsgroup is fairly active, so some others are still doing 
it the old fashioned way :-) Mind you, I wouldn't say no to a loaf baked 
in a machine, will be experimenting with a friend's, but I don't have 
money for kitchen gadgets right now, too many 'puter toys are needed for 
bread to take priority.
