Code:
ii  flashplugin-nonfree  1:3.6.1  amd64  Adobe Flash Player - browser plugin

Smokeping and Slipknot

Posted 07-09-2015 at 07:45 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Random thoughts ahead...

E-cigarettes not endorsed by American Lung Association

Posted 07-08-2015 at 09:01 PM by BenCollver

The purpose of this post is to set the record straight on e-cigarettes.

I received a problem report on my personal web page [1]. It resembled spam, but I replied anyway. The response appealed to my sense of charity, and suggested that they are supported by the American Lung Association [2].
