One possible wrinkle may be the fact that I'm moving to a more self-managed system running in Amazon AWS.  While this gives more flexibility (and is more interesting to me professionally), it won't have some of the nice automatic anti-spam/firewalling features that we got from hosting with ServINT in the past.  There was a brief time several years back when TZT was getting crushed by Chinese search engine crawlers (and I think even Microsoft Bing crawlers too), and it was a simple matter to firewall these off.  I've not really explored how to do that on AWS.

I certainly know how to do manual IP blocks on AWS, but ServINT conveniently had software that could automatically block crawlers or port-scanners or any other suspicious traffic.  If anyone here has experience in freeware (or something cheap) that can do similar in AWS, lemme know.

Most of that can be handled in the design - basically you configure your VPC and only allow 443 to come in. It's been a while since I brushed up on AWS stuff, but certainly Chemosh would be an excellent resource.

Also, for certs, I assume you've heard of Let's Encrypt:

If not, there you go.

I tend to agree with Utumno on this. I voted 2.

I understand wanting it all to go away, but I disagree. 2 seems a good compromise, though I am less happy that all posts everywhere are subjected to the same conditions.

Of course, as soon as I pipe up to bitch about it, it noticeably started feeling better, doing nothing at all. Then, this morning , I tried getting back into my bodyweight exercise routine that I have been scared to do, and it aggravated it some. Don't be old and hardheaded kids. Even if you don't think you will be, you might surprise yourself!

So, rehab time. Based on what you suggested I found this:

Looks pretty good for stretch and massage.  You also mentioned a grip strengthener. I forgot to mention that I had just started using one, and pushing to a new set of reps the same week I originally injured it, so it may have contributed to weakness, that helped with the failure. Oh well. Such is life.

Given that though, how long should I wait before adding strength building back into the mix? 1-2 weeks? It's noticeably tighter today too.

yeah if it's just the femoral head that's involved it's essentially fixing the "ball" part of the ball and socket joint.

sometimes it can be treated conservatively but his fracture is likely to be complex and unlikely to improve with conservative measures.

since kaiser is not a fee-for-service pay model and surgeons don't get extra money for procedures, it's a good bet that your dad legitimately needs the surgery.

Good to know.  And honestly I generally think very well of Kaiser services (outside of mental health), and my dad in particular who is a walking case of complications in particular has had excellent doctors overall.  He had a personal physician literally begging him on his knees to stop smoking.  I do believe he's in good hands, even before knowing Big Vae's pals are on the case.

I hear the Kaiser guild is doing big things.

same as babby

I will wait for Piek to chime in to correct the likely bad advice I'm going to give you.

You strained your tendons. Rest and ice to reduce irritation, Ibuprophen or aleve for swelling. - Stop furiously masturbating.

After two weeks start moving the shit at physical therapy. Still ice and rest after exercises. - no beating off.

After another week start building strength and endurance back up after the lack of fapping.

Week five should be minimal masturbation as pain tolerates.

Week six, increased beating off until you can jerk away.


Get a steroid injection and regret not going the PT route.

Sounds good to me.

No but really it is a tendon issue.  Lets go back real quick to check this the medial or lateral elbow.  If you hand is at your side with your palm forward is your pain on the pinky side or thumb side.

Thumb side - so, lateral?

Flexor tendons attach to the medial elbow (these tendons include both wrist and finger flexors), extensor tendons to the lateral eblow.

Based on where your pain is we can focus on what to do for recovery.  But we are hit with an issue right off the are a month into this injury and its not better.  What have you been doing for your elbow so far?  Typically inflammation injuries that stick around we call chronic and require a break of the inflammatory phase of healing.  The phase that only is supposed to last 48 hours is now extended significantly.  So breaking the inflammatory cycle is key here.  A prescribed anti inflammatory will do the trick **DO NOT GET AN INJECTION** (tendons + NSAID injections = increased risk of rupture...that would be surgery friend... most doctors won't do it anyways).  With that ice, heat and gentle stretching are key to recovery. 

I know you have mentioned before not to take NSAID right after an injury like this, but it was really bad, and I didn't remember until a day or so later. So right off the bat I fucked up. I was taking 600mg Ibuprofen 3 times a day. I iced it a few times when I could, but I was at work during this too. The ibuprofen tapered off after a 3 or 4 days and I only took it when I noticed and had quick access (most likely only at home before I went to sleep).


Start with this for the next few days:

1)  Heat up the elbow to warm up the tissue

2) Look up forearm stretches and do 3 sets of 30 seconds for both flexion and extension (DO IT STRAIGHT ARMED NOT BENT ELBOW!)

3) Get a gentle grip strengthener and do some pain free grip exercises 3 x 15 if you can tolerate it.

4) Look up "Eccentric wrist exercises with light weight" and try them.  () 3 x 15 if you can tolerate that high repetition, you arm will be tired.  You can do both flexion and extension but if its just lateral extensors tendons then just do the exercise in the link above with light weight to start (he's using 8, you start at like 2lbs...a can of beans works fine)

5) Make an ice cup outta a paper cup and do 15 minutes of ice cupping on the tendon. 

Do this for like 2 weeks about 3 or 4 times a week along with an anti-inflammatory drugs.  If you can get access to an ultrasound machine for therapy that would speed this up too but i doubt you can.


Given my reply, is the last part still relevant? Muchas gracias.

right off the bat, no masturbation is a non-starter...

Thanks Piek. I'll follow up tonight. And it has gotten a bit better, it's just very slow.

less huge wang speculation - more salve for my leaky vagina

probably some large Laundry Detergent (Domestic Bliss)

C'mon, dude... we all know it wasn't heavy.

I know  :cry:

Skars the Evergrumping

Tennis elbow - how does it work?

Injured on some shit domestic duty. Something heavy with a handle cranked the wrist/elbow. It's been over a month and still is aggravating the fuck out me, though way, way less down the pain level. Suggestions, please?

Could be a lat or trap pull. When I surf out of shape, I can get similar injuries as I get back in shape, and they can radiate up to the neck for sure.

Always take the advice of the guys who know wtf they're talking about, but if you need ghetto advice, and you can find me, maybe you can hire, the C Team... :pimp:

Jupiter Ascending had some segments with nice cinematography though. Thinking about the space ship / wedding scene for one. I don't regret watching.


I will say the sky roller blades were super gay. whoever wrote that shit needs to go back to cool school.

I got out on a 10' break in Huntington Beach with my 9' board.  It was a HEAVY day.  Took me 30 mins.  After a 30 minute recovery time, I dropped in on my first wave, pulled out early to play it safe.  My second wave, I dropped in deep, and rode it a bit farther than I should have.  It closed out on me and broke my leash.  I was about 200 yards out with nothing by my wetsuit.  It took me 45 minutes to swim in.  My board was like 500 yards down the beach, and I didn't even care.  I literally crawled out of the surf on my hands and knees.  It's one of the few times I thought I was going to drown.  Fortunately, some guy saw it and brought my board to me.  I laid there for what seemed like forever.

Anyways, that was a tangent.  I was mostly just replying to say that I have a 9'1 Mactavish (which is what I had that day).  It has the option to put in 3 fins, and, if you bring the tail fin in a bit, you can absolutely shred  with that thing.  I've hit the lip so hard, and there's 9' of board straight up in the sky for a half a second.  It's fun to make short boarders notice.  I'd be lucky to pop up these days, though. 

I ended up with 3 boards: A couple of 9 footers and a fun shape I got for my wife that is now mostly decoration.

That's awesome. I've seen a few MacTavish's for sale out here, usually in the 9' range. Always pretty looking boards too.

I broke a board in half, over my thick skull and had to swim in myself on a bigger day - not as big as you, but still 5-6-ish. I still have a huge shark fear, so I panic in those situations when I don't have my board. Only took me 20 mins to get in, but my heart was hammering the whole time.

You have 8 boards?  You went all in, lol.  Do you surf multiple styles or do you stick to one?  I could only ever get the hang of longboarding.  Shortboarding was way to squirrely for me.

I still have my very first board, that I recently had overhauled. It was an 80s model that had a bit of sun/UV damage so any ding I got in it was a dry-dockable offense. That lead me to buying a second one, also used. I was still new, so overlooked a really bad tail repair that failed pretty early. While I was still trying to learn fiberglass repair, I bought a 3rd that I fell in love with - 10' Epoxy Walden Magic Model. I eventually found another used and I rotate both of those. I tend to leave one at work and one at home, so I can drive directly to the beach when the moment arises. My wife thought about getting into surfing, so I picked up a 10" soft top, but she never did, so I use it for friends/family. When we moved out of our old building, there were 2 derelict/unclaimed 6' short boards that I held onto and eventually repaired. When I lost all that weight it was becoming more possible to surf a shorter board, but back up over 270, not so much. As a step down before the 6 footers, I had someone give me a decent 8'.

It was all kind of organic, and oviously some were free, but a lot of the early purchases were due to trying to keep an undamaged board in the water as I learned. And, well you you, the early days are all about the fuck ups. With my weight back up though, I can really throw a 10' board around, as I tend to ride it more like a shorter board. I never have learned how to noseride, but I have dropped in on some decent 7 footers before on a good day. Have to be in really good shape though to haul that log out past the break. ;)
