Plaque Psoriasis

Fundamental fact about this disease: Plague Psoriasis

A common knowledge-base portal via Wikipedia provides just enough knowledge.
I like webmd better as it looks closer to scientific oriented write up.
The Mayo Clinic would provide much thorough and unbiased explanation for the disease.

From Mayo Clinic, Psoriasis triggers

Psoriasis typically starts or worsens because of a trigger that you may be able to identify and avoid. Factors that may trigger psoriasis include:

  • Infections, such as strep throat or skin infections
  • Injury to the skin, such as a cut or scrape, a bug bite, or a severe sunburn
  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Heavy alcohol consumption
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Certain medications — including lithium, which is prescribed for bipolar disorder, high blood pressure medications such as beta blockers, antimalarial drugs, and iodides
  • All about autoimmune related issues

    Fixing my old linksys E4200

    Narration: while I bought a top the line router 7-8 years ago, my linksys stops working when I tried to connect to a different port! The symptom is more like this. It broadcasts intranet signal but can not connect to a live ethernet port.

    I remember that it happened once and I was able to fix it. Since I did not take a good note, now I have totally forgot and I am back to square zero. Hopefully, I can fix it this time and in the meantime have a thorough documentation. It shall be useful for others, I hope.

    This seems even better
