After getting some alties all shook up with my one minute shot the
other day, I pulled a double today with the bottomless portafilter in
24 seconds, and it was almost liquid poetry.

I just kept telling myself while tamping:

"Don't be Arnold."
"Don't be Arnold."
"Don't be Arnold!"

Therin lies the secret of not choking the Silvia.
And no, I do not own a bathroom scale. ;-)

adjust your grinder, and you, too, can tamp hard if you prefer.

Barry, do you really find that tamping pressure makes much difference?

R "google levitating tamp" TF

I'm sorry for your loss, Mr Ziffel.

Yes it helps not to be a pig when tamping or even a Governator.;-)

I had to do a little Googling to understand who Mr. Ziffel was.
You see, I am an underprivileged child who not only doesn't own
a bathroom scale, but also does not watch television.
