Let's see.  After a light tamp (5-10 lbs) I cant the tamper about 15 
degrees to the front of the PF and then precess that around the edge of the 
PF, setting the grounds around the edge, with a simple roll of the 
wrist.  Then I finish with my full tamp and polish.  Don't push too hard on 
the roll or you will disturb the whole puck bed.  You are just trying to 
seal the edge a little more to reduce the possibility of 
channeling.  Sounds way more complicated and fussy than it is.
And for the record, I go clockwise, NESW.  I am sure it makes all the 
difference :-)

Chicken soup, Mark!  And get well soon, so you can get back to enjoying your 
coffee.  The very best chicken soup for colds, by the way, is the Chinese 
variety - Hot & Sour Soup...at least for me.

I agree - a good Hot 'n Sour soup is GREAT when you're feeling under the =
weather.  However, add a bit of freshly grated ginger to it for even =
more healing powers.
