I was just prescribed Zoloft for anxiety and possible depression. After I've been taking it for 1, 2, 4 weeks or whatever milestones make sense, how can I determine whether it's actually working., and how do I decide whether a dose increase might help me more? I'm looking for specific challenges - exposure exercises, though experiments, daily logging maybe? - to attempt and compare with previous results to quantify my improvement. [more inside]
Someone I was in contact with on Christmas has just been diagnosed with shingles. There was skin to skin contact, although I didn't notice any sores (but I wasn't looking for them). I'm concerned that I could transmit the virus to others - particularly some young children, elderly, and otherwise immunocompromised people I would be seeing at another family gathering tomorrow. Should I quarantine myself for a bit? [more inside]

I dress my daughter in a lot of fuschias and bright pinks. When I take her picture, these colours never come out right. I can only get close when I underexpose the shot by quite a lot. Suggestions on how I can remedy this without photoshop? [more inside]
I often use exposure bracketing with my Panasonic DMC-FX01. But now I have a problem, a huge chunk of my iPhoto library is taken up by trios of the same shot only one of which is actually needed for my archive. Is there some easy way to review bracketed sets and select one while deleting the rest?
How likely is the possibility that one would get past an automatic 'ick' reaction by repeated exposure? [more inside]
What are the best days/times to have ebay auctions end? Which are the days/times to absolutely avoid?
Google-fu fails: I built a plasticam pinhole camera last year. I then printed out a guide of how long to expose the film. Then I lost it! [more inside]

I moved into a new apartment where my back windows now face other neighbors, not too close, but not very far either. This exchange of views is a new thing to me. My question is: how dressed up do you have to be in order to avoid offending the neighborhood? Anyone with "rear window" experiences? [more inside]
What's a good digital camera for someone that wants to do long exposures, macro photography, and has roughly $500 to spend? [more inside]
About 12 months ago I saw what looked like a long-exposure shot of a shuttle launch, at night, from a high vantage point (possibly a helecopter). My efforts to find it since have not since located this stunning shot, despite searches of the usual, common-sense general and subject specific sites. Would the hive mind be able to help with this?
Lice exposure: Could I have got it? It's been a week since I might have been exposed, and no itching so far. Also, should I boil all my property, that was briefly in the buggy house? [more inside]

I am having overexposure problems with a webcam pointed outside. It's not pointed at the sky, and it overexposes even on rainy days. I think I need software that will do a better job. [more inside]
[CameraFilter] I have a Pentax K1000. The last two rolls of film I've gotten developed (a generic-brand ISO 200 and a Fuji ISO 100) have had a major problem - the first couple of pictures turn out alright, then the last couple of pictures, but everything in between is overexposed. My first thought was a light leak when I changed lenses, but then I realized an earlier roll came out just fine, and I'd used different lenses on it. Any ideas?
How do you become an internet phenomenon? I am a writer who wants exposure and my friends keep telling me to start a website. I've started many a blog--all dismal failures--and need perhaps good advice on how to (a) construct a unique, functional website that is easy to post on and (b) get exposure. Figured this was a good place to ask. Thanks!
