I got a water softener and when it goes into recharge mode it drains all the water from my water heater. This happens about once a week and it causes the water heater to try and fill. Of course as there is no water being provided this just means it is sucking air. The pulling of air is so violent that it shakes the intake pipes and creates a thundering racket. [more inside]

I've started lifting weights with protein supplements, and noticed most are very high in cholesterol - 10-15% DV per scoop, and you're supposed to have 6-8 a day. Can someone recommend a supplement that is cholesterol-free? [more inside]

Girlfriend diagnosed with diverticulitis two days ago, admitted into hospital for IV antibiotics, hopefully being released this afternoon.
Still awaiting discharge instructions, but anticipating she'll be on a low-residue, liquid only diet for a week.
Looking for ideas/recipes on soups/juice/smoothies to prepare for her so it's not the same old chicken broth and orange juice every day.
She may be advised to limit dairy intake (milk/yogurt) to under 2 cups a day.

Not even kidding: What are some good ways to avoid being tailed after a downtown meeting with people I don't want to follow me home and find out where I live? Anyone know of good tips for shaking pursuers, either from the movies or real life?

After a semi hard run or other cardio / muscular endurance excerise I sometimes get the shakes, or muscle twitchs... and not in the muscles you would expect. What would cause this? [more inside]

VideoFilter: When I take stills from a DV capture and use them in my Premiere Footage as a slide, sometimes they image will shake, as if the image is quickly switching back and forth between frames. What causes this and is there any way to cure it?

Some of my XVid movies shake when I play them, regardless of the player used. This does not happen with all XVid movies, and GSpot says they have no errors.
Also, they do not shake when I play them in my DVD player, so it's something software-related. Other than uninstalling my codecs and re-installing them, have you got any suggestions? Thanks!
