Out of the Blue

I used some of that zinc stuff last week at the first sign of a cold, as recommended. Once again, this stuff worked like advertised, as I did not suffer a single sniffle or other congestion-related symptom all week. I have, however, been suffering from a nagging sore throat ever since. I imagine this may have to do with the zinc suppressing the mucous shed that causes all the coughing and sneezing, which I believe also helps get the cold out of your system. Anyway, this is all just my effort at connecting cause-and-effect, but if this soreness persists another day or so, I may just head out to the doctor to make sure it's not something more serious.

Great Sopranos last night, and the premiere of Deadwood was even better than I had hoped, and I already had very high expectations for that one.

I just signed up for a free two week trial for Netflix. It looks like a pretty good deal if you use it enough.

Anybody have any experience with these guys?


I have a friend at work who uses them a lot. For the $20 a month he spends, it cheaper than 2-3 movies for him and the wife, and another 2-3 kiddie movies for the kids. Plus, no hurry, since there's no late fees.

(As we're in Oklahoma, and the closest Nexflix center in in TX) He's got it down to a science where he mails them back on Tuesday, and he's got new discs in his mail on Friday, in time for the weekend.

Give it a shot...


edit:
As much as people claim they'll "support the site" with voluntary contributions, having to worry about something as tenuous as user donations to pay the bills would cause ulcers for Blue I think.

I suspect this has a lot to do with it, also. If he gets a sustainable amount one month, but then hardly any the next, he could be sunk. And none of us what that to happen...

All we can do is click a few ads, root for him, and hope for the best...
