Make a cup of th, press lemonjuice in it, a dash of whiskey, a dash of black pepper and a dash of crushed garlic. Drink it so hot you almost burn your tongue, and as fast as you can so you don't taste it. Go to sleep under lots of blankets, and when you wake up, you'll feel better. Distgusting, I know! But I promise it works! Got the guts to try it...?

Hope you feel better soon! Thanks for fixing Craftster - we truly appreciate your sacrifice!
Not much you can do for a cold except plenty of rest & fluids (ginger tea is great!). Remember to wash your hands, eat well, and get plenty of fresh air & exercise to stay healthy in the future. We don't like to hear that you're sick (hugs)!  Cry

Quote from: the craftster admin (leah)
P.S. My plan in the not-too-distant future is to start investigating how much it will cost to hire someone to handle many of the technical aspects of Craftster like configuring the server and database to handle such a large forum. Craftster is so large -- and growing all the time -- that it's time to bring in the big guns!
Um, yeah, 56k members is more than just a little bitty membership.

When you get to that point, you could check out my geek husband who does this sort of thing for a living.  You can find his resume at http://geek.farook.org/resume.htm if you like.

I hope you feel better soon if you aren't already.

Ginger Altoids help with the upset tum! Also, if you chew on a clove - like the ones you stick in a ham - it will help with your digestive ills, too. Break off the round, papery top and chew the clove like you would a fingernail. I know that sounds gross, but you know what I mean, right? Play with it in your teeth, not crunch it up like you're going to eat it. When it gets soft and loses its flavor, spit it out and get a new one.

Feel better fast!
