Re: What have you just bought?

My dad needed to lose £1k, so he bought himself a 28" TV which will go into my mums room, and himself the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ (£800) waiting for the £220 Keyboard case to become available.

Re: What have you just bought?

I bought 3 x 5m Cat 5 cables in pound land a quid a piece.

These were ideal for hardwiring my FreeSat, DVD and TV to my Access Point and they work a treat.

Re: What have you just bought?

50M of external Ethernet cable to run from my router up through the loft, down the outside wall of the house, through the wall with a socket on each end. I’m fed up with not being able to use Catch Up in the evenings as my Powerline adapters dry up!

Re: What have you just bought?

$2 a month Patreon subscription to one of my favourite authors, John Birmingham (Axis of Time trilogy, Without Warning trilogy, Girl Out Of Time books) - for this I get
Quote:
for two bucks a month, you're in. As I write each chapter you get it here. As each volume is published, you get the ebook. But you'll also get lots of cool things that don't make it into the final, published copies. Short fiction. Character studies.
At the moment, I am read the draft chapters of an Audible audiobook of his (Zero Day Code) - it’s not available in print as Audible have an exclusive on it for a couple of years, but his drafts are available to subscribers.

Re: What have you just bought?

16x 200mg Ibuprofen capsules and some 5% ibuprofen gel. My foot and ankle have become very painful and swollen.

The consensus, don't laugh, is gout. I don't even like port or thrashing servants.

I've had it before and it usually clears up after a few days but getting out of bed in the middle of the night is pure agony.

There are a couple of prescription medicines but they take many days or even weeks to work so not really an option in the short term.

You have my sympathies heero. <hugs> My long stint on high dose Steroids left me with heart and kidney problems. The damage to my kidney functions resulted in very high Uric Acid levels. Gout! Never have any symptoms just have to take the Allorprinol for life. Just wish Drs reading my medication list would also read my health records. It gets tiresome when they assume my favorite drink is Port.

Thanks Jo. The OH does what he can with a bit of massage, that helps.

It's probably too much alcohol but some lifestyles we can't really give up.

Just remember to drink plenty of liquids.

As a fellow gout sufferer I have tried numerous remedies.

I have finally been prescribed something that works and works FAST - Colchicine.

I can honestly recommend it if you haven't tried it.
