I’m now looking at getting an InFocus X1 or X1A projector. They are very similar in price and functionality.. the A model has digital keystone adjustments but no high-quality de-interlacer.

So I’ve been taking this Milk Thistle supplement which I got at Whole foods (for a mere 4 dollars) for about a week now. It’s supposed to be good for your liver, but what I have really noticed is that it seems to really help with reducing hang-over effects as well. I had at least […]
