Comment St John's wort (Score 1) 182

I was on Fluoxetine for a while until deciding that I no longer wanted my brain to be fed this stuff. Being concerned about its effects on the environment and the millions of people on this stuff helped me to make the decision to come of it and deal with the depression myself using alternative methods.
Am now taking a St John's wort tablet each morning with breakfast and a 5-HTP tablet before bedtime. Have felt great, if not better, than when I was on Fluoxetine. And I'm pretty sure that St John's wort is not going to harm Shrimps.

Cacti has some great plugins too; although they can be a little messy to install to the new user. thold is a great plugin for alerting out if a threshold has been breached. Nagios + Centreon + Cacti = win

Comment How about more unpaid time off? (Score 1) 396

I'm feeling exactly the same. I want to work less and would love to go part time. I have thought about talking to my boss about having every other Monday off. I only get twenty days holiday a year and so in the end I just asked for a few extra one week blocks off a year unpaid and my boss was very understanding and said yes.
