    Anal Fissures

    Yes, if you want a specific medication/cream that requires a prescription then just ask your doctor for it directly. Explain that you've heard good things or had it recommended by a friend/whatever. If they really feel it's a bad idea, they will explain that and perhaps offer an alternative...

    Anal Fissures

    Diet is super important, add fiber, add water. I would definitely keep surgery way way way down the list of things to try, probably best to keep it off the list. Coconut oil applied to the area can help. Definitely don't strain when on the toilet. If it feels like it's going to be a tricky one...

    Instant Pot

    I tried adapting my chicken akni recipe for the instant pot. It was a failure. I kept getting burn warning, I would guess it's coming from the thick tomato/yoghurt marinade on the chicken pieces. It needed more pressure cooking time to get the potatoes done but, well, I couldn't because of the...

    painfull eyes

    I've found recently that if you wear a mask that doesn't fit properly over the nose, that air can be pushed over the eyes when exhaling, drying them out and causing them to become very painful and red.

    Instant Pot

    I put the instant pot on saute normal, when it's hot put a little oil. i add: 2 finely chopped onions and 2 cloves chopped garlic, when the onion starts to change color a bit, add a grated carrot, let it saute for a minute or so and then add 250-400g of beef mince, stir occasionally to break...

    Instant Pot

    I tried the spaghetti bolognaise all in one pot again, I did add a 1/2 cup of extra water and pressure cooked it for 13min instead of 10min after adding the spaghetti. Honestly, it didn't seem to make the spaghetti any softer, so that was unexpected... On the other hand, the spaghetti does seem...

    Instant Pot

    Tried a few more sous vide steaks at 57degC which is about the perfect level of cooked for me. Came out amazing, won't be cooking steak any other way for a long time. Wanted to try out spaghetti bolognaise in the instant pot. I used my usual recipe for quantities and seasoning etc. saute'd the...

    Instant Pot

    I got the sous vide version last week. I made sous vide porterhouse steak from checkers, I did 60degC for 2h and then browned it for approx 1min per side in a hot pan and held it on the fat side for a little bit. I only seasoned it just before browning in the pan with salt/pepper. One of the...

    SmartBroadband Wireless Prepaid - only working on some of my devices. Why?

    I finally bought a B535 (was struggling to justify spending so much money). Seems to be working well, so far, thanks for advice from all. I also made sure to disable roaming via the USSD menu. B535-932 supports B1,B3,B40 so I should be well covered for telkom.

    What MS Office do you use?

    2019 pro. I don't like the yearly license of 365, with 2019 you pay the license once and it's done.

    SmartBroadband Wireless Prepaid - only working on some of my devices. Why?

    But it didn't say -R, just the normal TelkomSA. Or does it sometimes roam without saying -R? edit: I will use the USSD code to block roaming though, thanks.

    SmartBroadband Wireless Prepaid - only working on some of my devices. Why?

    I will look at b535's, they seem a little pricey though, I will shop around a bit more. It seems the band 40 (2300MHz) is the most important spec right? I want at least B3 and B40 in any new router?

    SmartBroadband Wireless Prepaid - only working on some of my devices. Why?

    Thanks for that link, I didn't know you could block roaming completely via the USSD menu like that, nice! I don't think I was roaming at the time I had the problems though, I had made a point to check the network identification name. In the link it says "TelkomSA-R" but I didn't see any -R.

    SmartBroadband Wireless Prepaid - only working on some of my devices. Why?

    My b315 works very well on telkom, seems to support all the required bands as far as I can tell. Perhaps test it with a prepaid sim and one of the prepaid telkom network only bundles to get a feel for the performance.
