I am guessing there is a print server somewhere on your network, and it had a random little hiccup. At the least, that's where I would start looking.

Speaking of blasts from the past, my office had an email go out advising students to use a email account that the university got rid of over five years ago. We're baffled.

Is there anything one can do to have thicker hair?
Mine is really thin and I feel like I can't do a lot with it even if it's past shoulder length.
I wash it every two/three days with shampoo that seems appropriate, I don't use conditioner, I blow dry with my head down to try and give it a minimum of volume.
Would a different shampoo or conditioner help? Or is that something that cannot be changed?

It sort of depends. Has your hair airways been like this? Is it a recent change?  How do your nails look?

Thin hair can just be how your hair is. It can also be from medical conditions or vitamin deficiencies.

There is a Rogaine for women.  Walgreen's has a store brand that's cheaper.  It costs about $10 per month.  It works for me. 

It takes two people to play tug of war. If you don't want to play, don't pick up the rope.

I have heard that sometimes anemia (not enough iron in the diet) can cause hair to thin - if you've not reached menopause yet, you might ask about a blood test to see if you're anemic.  If you have reached menopause, I understand that you are less likely to be anemic...but it probably can't hurt to have a blood test anyway...too much iron is not good for you, either.

My hair has always been on the thin side, but my nails are appaling right now, that coupled with other problems and I guess I'll leave the matter to my doctor first (A blood draw was in my future anyway  :()

Thanks everyone  :).

Hair and nails deteriorating at the same time can be a symptom of a whole lot of things, some minor (dietary deficiency) some... less minor (assorted auto-immune issues, including rheumatic or psoriatic arthritis). Hugs, and I hope you get answers quickly!

I have baby-fine, extremely thin hair. My hairdresser strongly recommended demanded I start taking Biotin. It made an amazing change.
My hair grows quicker, thicker and stronger than ever in my life.

I asked my doctor about it. He shrugged and said "It won't hurt you and, if you are happy, go for it."

I also take Biotin, haven't noticed a difference so far, but it's only been 2 weeks

I have seen warnings about making sure you drink enough water as it can cause acne and breakouts.  I also add Vitamin E oil to my hot oil mix as well.

What is it about eggs that makes car paint peel?

What is the best way to remove egg from a car?



Yes, my car was egged. >:( There are already quite a few spots of chipped paint. I took it through a car wash and that removed most of the residue but there are some spots that I tried to chip away with my finger nail and that stuff is really stuck on.

Wet a washcloth (pretty wet, you want it to stay wet for at least 15 minutes). Place it over the egg residue.
In 15 minutes, wipe away the now-liquid residue.

Apparently drying egg white sticks to the paint more than the paint sticks to itself - it can also haze some glass pieces, I'm told.

The drying egg white shrinks and pulls tiny flakes of paint off as it shrinks...or so Mom told me (chemistry teacher at the time) - it's why egging a house might look like a minor Halloween prank, but if cleanup was delayed, it could cause unexpected levels of damage.  Older formulas of paint might have peeled even worse forty years ago...

Eggs are largely protein which hardens when heated. Use cold water rather than hot. I'm unsure if the car wash is heated water, but if it is, you shouldn't have done it.

I can tell one on myself, or "Ask a silly question..."

I'm taking a sign language course at the School for the Deaf.  We were doing finger spelling, and I asked the instructor how you signed ASL (American Sign Language).  He promptly signed out A-S-L.  ::).
