Subject: bleeding steam wand
I think it's "just my imagination," but it seems to me that when bleeding my
Giotto Classic steam wand, a bit more water is coming out than used to.
(That is, it bleeds for around 3 seconds instead of 1.)

If this is reality, is it a symptom of something I might look into?

Check your liquid level probe for scale buildup.

So you think that too much water is in the boiler? I did recently pull out
that probe and descale, so maybe I put it back in lower than it was before?

That's an interesting note. I actually meant higher, in that I fully
screwed it in and pushed it down as far as it can go. So I realize I can't
do anything more about that.

Heck, Ian said he might help me put a PID in it. Seems like a lot of fuss
but if he's offering, I might just go for it!
