The sickness approacheth

Yesterday I went to bed early because I was starting to get a cold. Today I woke up and my throat was completely dried out, or at least that's what it felt like.

Before I left for werk, I took an Advil Cold & Sinus pill and took two more with me for the rest of the day; these pills only last about 4 hours before you have to take another.

On my way to werk, I stopped by a local convenience store and picked up several packets of Halls - which to date is my all time best friend when I have a cold. When I get a cold I get extremely congested. Halls clears it up all the time, every time. Combined with the Advil I'm usually in pretty good shape.

So far, today hasn't been too bad. Been using the Halls, drinking Ginger Ale and am on my 2nd Advil of the day. My next one is due at around 3:30pm depending on how I feel. Note on that Ginger Ale thing: When growing up, when anyone got sick we were told by the family elders to drink Ginger Ale, so we did. I don't think it has any medicinal value whatsoever, but it does clear your throat.

I have the sneaking suspicion I might be very ill tomorrow. I find that the older I get, the longer it takes for colds to take effect. When they do, it wallops me every time no matter how much I prepare.

WD-40 on the PSU = quiet and happy

Note before continuing: Do not attempt this, it's a really dumb idea. That being said..

First I'll tell the first PSU story then the second.

Changed the site.. again. Yeah, I know.. I've been changing it a lot over the past few weeks. The reason I changed the site's look this time around is because CSS was really ticking me off. I tried very hard to go with a "table-less" design. It did work for the most part. My only issue with it (which was very annoying) is that on different resolutions the former right side menu would "push" to the bottom. No matter what I did, it would always push for certain resolutions. Can't have that.

Also, yeah I went back to the "in a box" design. The borders you see is the box. This time I decided to make the box have rounded edges so it's better to look at.

You'll also see nifty rollover graphics on the top. Woo-hoo. (grin)

So yeah, this design will stick for a while.. until I decide to change it again.
