    Just guessing here.... but when you tamp coffee and water saturates it (your initial extraction), the puck swells, making it more difficult for water to flow through the coffee. It could be that the combination of your tamp and the saturation of the puck means your water cannot flow.

    Have you tried tamping with less pressure?

    Weird washing instructions too.

    'We'd also suggest turning inside out prior to washing and keeping them separate from other items by popping them into a mesh laundry bag'

    Turn what inside out?!

    Totally get it. Just don't know why the name was changed the day he leaves office. Just leave it. Maybe I'm just being prickly because this guy has actually impacted my every day life 😂

    Yeah, he was President. Makes sense. Doesn't mean it needs to continue, though. Continue to Trump away, but yeah, changing the name is dumb.

    Watched Magnolia at the weekend and very much enjoyed it's ridiculous plot, and ending.

    Also watched LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring yesterday. Man, that film has aged well considering it was made during a somewhat awkward phase for SFX. Really, really, really enjoyed it. Cannot wait to watch The Two Towers tonight, which was my favourite IIRC. I think I may have only seen it once since I was a kid. Love Treebeard so much.

    Stupid thread name change.

    Edit: To elaborate on why I think this:

    Trump has plagued this country for four years, and I have lived here for two of them. It has impacted my life and those around me every single day. He's gone. Let him live in the past. This thread can become the focus of, hopefully, the positive impact that the Biden administration will have going forwards. Of course, discuss the impeachment of Trump and so on, but to change the name of the thread to Will Trump Be Arrested is just stupid and belittles the rest of the US Political system (not that I necessarily like it as a system, but it doesn't revolve around one person, one who is no longer a politician.) I don't want a reminder of what a disgrace he is every single time I look at my Following tab.

    Yeah, no need to get sucked into his rabbit hole, but Linsoul appear to make good stuff if the internet hive mind is to be believed.

    I have some Fiio FH3s now, which despite being one of their cheapests models, are also my favourite. Much more so than the FH7s which cost 3 times as much. I have no upgrade desire from these - which is very rare indeed.

    Sorry to hear you're having to shield, but what a great opportunity to buy some headphones/earphones from Amazon that can be returned if you don't like them 😉

    One of the more expensive Linsoul models or something from Moondrop could be good.

    Oh yeah, ha! Didn't know that was a thing back in 2012 when I had Force. The number of times I had to pull over to either shift with my fingers and pick up a dropped chain just from trying to shift ... I did love the feeling of shifting at the back with that group though. And the hoods. So comfy.

    Those decals do look great. Really great. Really don't like the direction moots have taken recently. They all look so cookie cutter.
