    Does smoking help with stress and anxiety?

    I smoked from the age of 15, tentatively 1 a day at first, then to about 7 a day more or less. Stopped smoking 3 years ago --- temporarily because of the vast cost in my country --- although I will smoke if a friend offers me one; not smoking does not make one a non- or anti- smoker...

    Does smoking help with stress and anxiety?

    Yes. Smoking helps with almost every aspect of life: it is a grand and great pleasure. It's not for everyone though, and I certainly wouldn't encourage people to smoke, any more than I would encourage them to sky-dive, or to become vegan. Neither would I encourage them to refrain. We...

    Incident of 2018-08-13

    Addendum: Barely noticed one hopes, but there seems to have been some non-operation for hours preceding. I think it was due to the delayed effect of an add-on put in earlier: Force to read a thread, which would be less cumbersome than the notices system, and ironically purposed for this very...

    Incident of 2018-08-13

    We went down again for reasons unknown, some glitch. Sadly we are restored to the 9th, although the hosts of the lord did their damnedest to restore to the 12th. They have been working remarkably. Tomorrow, they will do more work; but if this post disappears I will replace it. This has...

    Incident of 2018-07-16

    There were some halts and starts and 500 Errors a few hours this past afternoon. Contacted URLJet and... There was a networking gear that was causing the slowness and engineers fixed it and everything is back to normal. They are very good.

    I kinda doubt unregistered guests would bother to download more than a thread since they can't see those hidden subs, and that it takes maybe 4 minutes to register as a member. As for banned people it seems rather vindictive to cast them out of Paradise and then say: "You can't take your...

    Hmm. I'm suspending it, not because of the protests --- it shall return, but because of 365 Template error: Cannot call method isIgnoring on a non-object (NULL) src/XF/Template errors in the last few minutes. XenForo Devs maintain their sturdy unhelpfulness. But googling shows this...

    I can't see the difference between a guest viewer using this, or simply him using 'Save this Page' in his browser, or any of a dozen ways I can defeat impudent javascript attempts to stop me stealing content: really it's a lost battle, lost 20 years or more ago due to the nature of computing...

    Hosts File...

    Last month I wondered if there was any way to make a hosts file that would only knock out personalised ads. They are all decadent capitalism, but it's the filthy little trackers that are the main problem. So no, doesn't seem to be such a list of domains, but I did find out that the wretched...

    Also, not important enough for own thread, just moved from PHP 5.3 to 7.2. I didn't even know I could do that on this edition of cPanel, just thought all our hosts would have progressed it automatically. PHP has many difficulties, but is something that needs to be cutting-edge. Unlike...

    For the missed sense of danger for those who feel too safe ? There's also MATH, once it was worked out how to add it to the Editor toolbar layout. The little fx beside the Drafts symbol.

    We cannot purge your posts, but we can anonymise you and all of those posts. Further we can issue you a privacy report. Obviously anyone who chooses this fearful exit must be banned forever afterwards. Kinda like Britain leaving the EU. Ain't no return this side of the grave.
