    Amazon Smiles

    We spend a ton at Amazon and have had CB listed as our smile charity for some time now. Can anyone confirm that this cause is actually getting money from smile.amazon?

    2015 Clusterbuster Conference

    Booked. Note that if you have a corporate room rate it is typically better than the conference rate.

    Sumatriptan injections in different quantities

    When you say 'sumatriptan injections', are you talking about the autoinjector? Imitrex has come in vials for as long as I can remember. Use as much as you want.

    Demand valves on eBay

    On a side note, scuba second-stages perform basically the same function as demand valves, and are plentiful and cheap on ebay. Perhaps I will look into the pressures involved at each stage. If they look compatible I might figure out the fitting adapters needed to hook these up to a medical O2 regulator.

    Demand valves on eBay

    I buy demand valves off ebay regularly. They range from great shape to train wrecks, with most being in the middle or lower end. Most need the exhalation valve replaced at a minimum. The most common issue is that many are really noisy... annoyingly noisy... due to wear on some internal parts. One issue with the 40LPM variants... that is 40LPM when constantly on, which is not how a demand valve works. In other words they deliver less than the 25LPM touted as being the CH need when breathing from it regularly (say 50% cycle). It is easily fixed... the intake fitting is where the 40LPM limit is. You take it off, drill it out slightly (it is very soft metal), clean it up and replace.

    Emergency Room - what do they give you for pain?

    There are a sad subset of us for which O2 is ineffective. If I catch it early O2 knocks it down for as long as I huff, but I am slammed within 10 minutes of stopping it. That seems pretty common among the minority of us who find O2 useless... O2 is more of a 'pause button' than an abortive. I have more O2 gear than most... in fact I rebuild and donate demand valves to those of us who benefit from O2. Thus I can safely say my gear could do the job. I even have one of those clunky O2 concentrators pictured above sitting around. : An experiment I performed last cycle was sleeping with 5l/minute of O2 via nasal all night to see if it reduces the number of nighttime hits. Results were inconclusive on the negative side. :-/

    Chicago... parking...

    How is the 'free parking next door thing'? Is it reasonably close? What is the cost to park onsite? Thx!

    Oxygen Concentrators

    Never thought of that. Nice idea!

    Miniature Neurostimulator Zaps Chronic Clusters

    Impressive statistics, and it is already approved in Europe. Their site... http://www.ati-spg.com/us/en/therapy/ati-system/ Wonder how much is costs?

    Psilo...

    On a followup note... it has been done by a crew in Japan about 10 years ago... http://www.erowid.org/archive/rhodium/pdf/chempharmbull.50.92.2002.pdf Specifically... Shows 5-bromo, 7-bromo, & 5,7-dibromo as the results, all unstable. They acetylated them, yielding stable 4-acetoxy-5-bromo-N,N-dimethyltryptamine & 4-acetoxy-7-bromo-N,N-dimethyltryptamine How important is the OH versus an OAc to us as a treatment? I dunno. Looks as though it took them a few tries to get the bromination to work. They provide very nice detail. Â

    St Louis - January

    LOL... your wife already made some lame-assed excuse as to why she will not be there. Guess you are traveling alone.

    St Louis - January

    A group of regulars from CH.com (assuming all of them are on here too) get together in St Louis every January. Right now we are planning for January 11th-13th at the Lumiere Hotel & Casino on the St Louis riverfront. If interested say something either here or at CH.com. We may be able to get a group rate if enough are planning to attend. Details over on CH.com
