I just missed another funeral. Thankfully the relative hosting it understood.

Honestly, I'd be okay with doing away with funerals, I hate them.

I remember weddings, and parties, before Covid.  They were so much fun.  Drinking and dancing and meeting new people.  I just turned down an invitation to a nice 4th of July bash with a band and wonderful food because I just don't want to risk the damned virus.  It's really a pita.  A friend went to a family reunion in the midwest recently and got Covid, despite being fully vaccinated and very careful.  It's not fair.

Found out Pillsbury tube biscuits don't add calcium.

So far most of the food I can eat on this med happen to be unhealthy and packed with sodium.

I can eat all the Lard I want! Sadly, I do not want to eat lard.

For the most part I've just been waiting two hours after taking the drug to eat. I feel crankier and fatter than normal.

Spent the weekend in Chelmford - or rather, Maldon - as a friend of our got married 2 years after the original, planned date (damned COVID). It was a lot of fun and went as smoothly as it possibly could have, but I am really feeling the over-boozing and over-eating.

Early night methinks.

I had an audio issue (I use my video card as my audio card with a TV hooked through HDMI, it behaves itself for the most part)
But during the troubleshooting, everything kept kicking back "Your internet connection is metered, and setup has been interrupted"
So I google it, and sure enough, I'd ticked that box when I reset Win10.

It's actually really useful. It keeps track on how much data your PC is sucking down, and it more importantly, restricts background data use.
I turned it off so the "setup" could complete, took about two minutes.

Now my mistake was leaving it switched off, my computer took forever to boot today, and resource use is spiked to the roof.
It's all windows services.

In a thread a long time ago, when I first installed 10, I complained about the hard drive sitting at 100% usage. That's back.

So I'm going to switch the meter back on. Because I am the primary user of my computer, not Microsoft.

Found out what the audio issue was, the stupid "enhancements"

I disabled that and the bass kicked in hard.

The last time I took tetracycline, many years ago, it really upset my stomach.  I was advised to drink rice water (the water that one normally pours off if you cook rice) as the starchy mild bland quality helps to buffer the stomach against the nastiness.

I hope you get through the prescription soon.  It sounds pretty awful.

I don't know whether to applaud you or kick you.

I'd enjoy either one.

Jesus! The list of side effects - even the usual ones - are pretty gruesome and sound worse than what it's trying to treat.

All antibiotics knock my digestive system for 6 and I end up feeling unwell until a take enough pre and probiotics to reset my system.

I'm on doxycycline. I thought going through this was as simple as avoiding dairy. Nope, CALCIUM.
The google searches are from bizarro earth, they're all about ADDING calcium to a diet, rather than how to avoid it. I get it, Calcium is critical, it's vital, it's the building blocks of life.

I'm still supposed to be avoiding it.

Even a bread and water diet wouldn't do it, unless I start baking my own damn bread, as that is one of the highly popular places diets are "Enriched"!

I've found a diet that works for me, but honestly, this poo is for the birds.

Yup, I was using the 2011 mmo naga, but that double click thing was really annoying.
