The only thing worse than being a moderator on a forum (which I did on a very popular one for several years) is being someone who checks the pictures posted on an image hosting site. I did that as a paid job for two years, and a decade after I finished I still occasionally have nightmares & flashbacks about some of the extremely graphic images I saw posted (such as accident victims & child exploitation). One image prevented me from sleeping for 3 days.

And, disappointingly, 90% of the worst of the worst came from one country, to such an extent that the owners of the image host decided to completely ban membership & viewing access to that entire nation.

Do we still need flash and java? » Post #3

Sat Mar 11, 2017 16:32 in General Talk

Firefox will still have Flash. However, it will be set to "click-to-play", which means Flash won't run automatically the moment an object loads, but you will be able to click on it to start Flash. So you should still be able to do surveys & play Flash games on Firefox (for a while at least).

Quote:Mozilla hasn't directly stated that Flash will be completely retired after the click-to-play change, though that is clearly the ultimate end goal. With Firefox 52, released in March next year (2017), every NPAPI plug-in (Java, Silverlight, etc.) will be disabled... except for Flash. Click-to-play is Mozilla's way of not-so-gently pushing the last few holdouts away from Flash before the guillotine falls.

Avocado and grapefruit are fantastic cholesterol reducers.

Just a reminder though that if you are taking any medications, especially cholesterol tablets (such as Lipitor), then you must make sure that there is no restriction on eating grapefruit, which can cause adverse effects with some medications.

My doctor took me off the cholesterol tablets at the end of last year, so for the first time in a decade I have been able to eat my favorite breakfast marmalade (which contains grapefruit peel).

Quote:Grapefruit–drug interactions - Wikipedia

Grapefruit and grapefruit juice have been found to interact with numerous drugs, in many cases resulting in adverse effects. Some other citrus fruits can have similar effects; one medical review advised patients to avoid all citrus.

How Do You Manage Stress? » Post #22

Sometimes I do also just follow the late Benny Hill's sage advice:

Now if you're feeling miserable, if you're feeling blue,
Here's a little ditty that'll help to pull you through,
All the clouds will disappear, the grey skies turn to blue:
Just stick your finger in your ear and go ting-a-ling-a-loo.

By the way, the reason I made my long post so wide-ranging is that, for many years I did deal with stress unhealthily. I would get drunk, blast my music (still do very, very occasionally), and wake up with regrets & a hangover the next day (and usually more worries if I had blown my money while drunk).

But removing or avoiding many of the things in the background of my life that were causing me to worry has been a lot more helpful. So, if you are stressed about your computer not working as it should, having fewer other worries on your mind will enable you to think more clearly and deal with the stressful situation in front of you a lot better. Stress gone!

Agreed. I was just about to add another post about why I made mine so wide-ranging when I saw your good advice. Exercise, or just communing with nature, can really help you reduce stress. It also gives you time to think (or not think).

I find that silence helps me. Switch off the TV & the radio, and remove the distractions. Could be because I have adult ADHD, but I find that interruptions or hearing worrying things in the background makes my stress levels go up.

Avoid watching more than 1 hour of news & current affairs per day. There is rarely anything that makes you feel good on it. I stopped being a news & political junkie a few months ago, and cut my TV news & current affairs viewing down from a couple of hours to about 15 minutes each day. I'll switch the idiot box on for the headlines, & basically watch until the moment a "junk" story comes on (a minor football scandal, reality TV show update masquerading as news, faux outrage). Then off it goes. Try to avoid the news breaks that pop up during shows which you watching to relax. Who wants to hear about death or destruction or politics during a comedy or romantic drama?

Don't read opinion pieces on news sites that are clearly biased towards either the left or the right (I know - it is not easy to find a "neutral" news site these days). They will just make you either frustrated or angry or peeved off.

On Twitter & Facebook, don't subscribe to always-serious people or serial-complainers. Every time you read something that is wrong with their world, your stress levels will go up. If you want to get a fix on what's happening, try the satirical & funny tweeters. A funny comment attached to a serious non-issue can really give you perspective (and a good laugh, which is one of the best ways to reduce your body's stress levels).

Don't let yourself get tired. If you don't sleep well, and if it is possible for you to do, if you wake up after a just a few hours, get up & have a cuppa tea & do something light for an hour or two (such as a couple of ClixSense surveys). Go back to bed, & you should drop off to sleep fairly quickly. Better than lying in bed awake worrying about things.

Finally, about 20 years ago I learned the Serenity Prayer during a difficult time in my life. You do not have to be religious & can change the first word in it to whatever you want - I just change the superior being to "Please". This is the line I always think of when I am concerned that an aspect of my life might be getting out of control:

...grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference...

Also, no coffee within 8 hours of bedtime. The only caffeine I have after 4pm is a cup of tea after dinner. Get some herbal teas instead. One an hour before bedtime will help you wind down for the day. A good night's sleep is one of the best ways to reduce your stress levels, and you will function better overall when you are fully rested.

Hope some of that helps.

P.S. Please don't start posting "neutral" news sites in this topic. Everybody's view is different, and this forum has strict non-political & non-religion rules.

Stupidity from tasman1 » Post #2

Sat Feb 25, 2017 15:58 in General Talk

Two suggestions Tas.

1) Find someone that you trust who has working PayPal & Payza accounts, and send them the money you have in Payza, and get them to send you the same amount in return (less costs) via PayPal.

2) I don't think you will get your money into your Aussie bank account from Payza - I've been waiting over half a decade for transfers to become available here. They don't seem to be in any rush. So, swallow your pride & provide your details to Payoneer or Skrill. Skrill was easy for me - I confirmed my ID by allowing them to withdraw a small amount from my MasterCard debit card which is linked to my bank account, and I was able to enter my bank account details successfully. Clicking on withdraw did allow me to proceed (although I cancelled as I don't have enough to withdraw at the moment). They may ask me for ID at a later stage, & I will be happy to provide it. You should be too - you have lived here long enough to know about the 100-points ID check that most Australian agencies & financial services require to prevent fraud & money laundering. The payment processors ClixSense are using are trusted worldwide, and that should really be enough for you.

Payza-to my bank problem » Post #2

Fri Feb 24, 2017 22:36 in General Talk

I don't think it is possible to transfer to Australian bank accounts from Payza. I've been a member of Payza for many years, and in the early days I was able to add my Westpac details (though I never actually made a withdrawal), but one day a message appeared that withdrawals to Australia were no longer possible. It hasn't changed in the years since then.

I'm really hoping that Skrill will be the go for Aussies. It looks okay - just waiting for my first ClixSense payout to go in & I will see if getting the cash is possible for those of us living down under.

Eating Tarantulas » Post #8

I guess I should add a health & safety warning to my post. :lol: The silly stuff we do when we are young & have a few beers (and scotches, and bourbons, and ports) under our belt.

The good news is that I haven't (knowingly) consumed any insects or vermin since then. Though I did ignore the 5 second rule about an hour ago when making lunch. A piece of tuna from the tin dropped onto the kitchen floor & it went straight back into the can from which it came.

When I was in my wild twenties (around 1987), a few work colleagues & I rented a holiday house on the coast for a long weekend. Quite a bit of alcohol was consumed over the 3 days, and on the Saturday night I finished up (voluntarily) eating a live full-sized cockroach & 2 big, fat bogong moths.

The secret is not to chew, and have a full beer next to you so you can wash the whole thing down in one or two gulps.

I didn't get sick. After all, they are non-venomous & just another form of animal protein. Haven't done the trick again since then though. Have found better squishy things to eat when drinking (such as cooked squid aka calamari).
