1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I got a pair off ebay that were pretty damn good for the price

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/S9-Gym-Spor...hash=item33c28e917d:m:moxpHlNF-O4MJuHeTemsZwQ

    Distance was about 20ft unimpaired before it got choppy. Didn't notice any problem with my ipod in my pocket or anything. However they did randomly break one day, got about 3-4 months out of them.

    I now use the Bragi Dash and it is fantastic for listening to music, not cheap by any means but unmatched by anything else. I mean you can swim with your headphones on and they have 4gb or 8gb (dont remember right now) of storage on them independent of my phone.

    Definitely fair mate, you don't have to convince any of us either way anyway, we're only dudes on the internet.

    Frankly I'm just playing contrarian a little because it is my general opinion that the US doctors seem to over-prescribe for some of these things, but that's another story. Just hope you and your doctor make sure it's the right diagnosis and the right treatment option. Good luck.

    These are somewhat anecdotal, not totally scientific factors that you could possibly look at changing up to see if you get any results:

    - BPAs; if you eat a lot of canned tuna, for example, it's particularly high in BPA. It's not crazily bad for you or anything but there's some (weak) evidence that it might be contributing to estrogenic activity in humans.

    - Dairy - particularly with your high cholesterol you might look at replacing your dairy products with things like soy milk. Dairy in some cases has been shown to have an estrogenic effect, but this is debatable. And in general look to replace your fat sources with nuts and seeds.

    - iodine, zinc, selenium. You can try vitamins or eat a handful of brazil nuts, sunflower seeds and maybe some oysters occasionally.

    - antidepressents - there's no scientific evidence that these influence T but I've heard heaps of anecdotal evidence. I don't know what your medication is or if it'd be wise to change it up.

    - Eat lots of broccoli and green vegetables. Some sketchy evidence that it may counteract estrogens. But frankly they're just good for you so no harm in upping them even if it has no effect.
