Looking for a website of personal essays

The website was text-based, with lots of hpyerlinked titles that clicked-through to the essays. The author had a biography page that was a big picture of his face that had been heavily filtered and a brief paragraph explaining that he (maybe?) used to live in Ireland, and now resides in America. His essays covered topics from film reviews - The Matrix is one I remember specifically - an addiction to on of the Civilization PC games, an addiction to nasal sprays that was overcome by going cold turkey for three days, internet trolls, and common logical fallacies. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

How to do I clear up a post-cold congestion/phlegm?

I've actually had this problem for awhile. I usually wake up in the mornings with congestion mostly a lot of phlegm. I have to clear my throat numerous times, blow my nose, etc. The phlegm is clear, no discoloration. Clogs most in my throat so I almost have to make a hacking sound to bring up the phlegm.

Quack-talking?

In his recent kids-these-days piece, Clark Whelton says "Even nasal passages are affected by fashion. Quack-talking, the rasping tones preferred by many young women today, used to be considered a misfortune." Do you get what he's talking about, and can you point me to an audio example?

Photo therapy for allergies. Quackery?

Can someone with access to the medical research literature tell me if there is enough evidence to warrant taking the red light led photo therapy nasal devices for the relief of hayfever seriously? I suspect it is quackery but am curious if there is any credible research out there. Anecdotes abound but I'd like to hear about some scientific data. [more inside]

Why yes I am from Jersey.

I have a podcast. Sometimes my voice is really nasally. Can I fix this physically or inside an audio editor? I guess what I’m asking is how do I develop a radio/podcast/speaking voice? (Hopefully without paying through the nose.)

How can I clear my sinus problem?

Help me breathe! The older I get, the more sinus trouble I have. Almost every morning I wake up with a semi-headache because one of my nasal passages is entirely blocked. This isn't a seasonal thing, nor does it seem to be allergy-related. During the day it clears up, but at night, I must depend upon nasal spray (the kind you're not supposed to use too consistently). Should I take the plunge and go see a doctor? Or is there some miracle drug I can get over the counter?

Can I change the nasal sound of my voice?
