  1. Sorry for the disruption

    We were in the process of relocating the DI website to a new server when we lost power overnight. Unfortunately we were unable to restore the server until now. The transfer has been completed and currently 2 web servers are serving the DI site - the old server displays this message. As DNS caches update, users will begin to filter onto the new server - you will know this has happened by the absence of this notice. Please note - any new posts posted to this server will not make it onto the new server.
    Details of how to speed up the DNS cache update on your computer are here: https://www.pcmag.com/how-to/how-to-flush-your-dns-cache

    I don't know.
    I think dryness is the main issue with wax build up. My ears have been better here in a humid climate. I still need to lubricate/soften the wax from time to time.

    Some great tips here........
    Hydrogen Peroxide ( Don't use it on your hair unless you want to go Blonde!)
    A Vacuum Cleaner ( must be a well known brand )
    A Camera ( micro one of course )
    Baby oil, Vegetable oil, Palm oil, Anything you can fry an egg in! ( Frying pan to big )

    Seriously only had my ears syringed once with warm water, choose not to have that done again.
    There are drops available over the counter, or a few drops of warm oil helps as already suggested.
    Another alternative that cleared my head and ears was a swim in the sea allowing the salt water to penetrate the ears.

    I had that done in the army. They used a high pressure spray. That'll bring tears to your eyes. I'll never opt for that again.

    The only time I have issues here is when I regularly use my earbuds. Great for noise cancellation and blocking out all the barking dogs and catcalls I get during walks, terrible for compacting ear wax. Risk/reward I guess.

    The other option obviously is to just go "bungol" (deaf). Might be helpful if you have a nagging asawa lol
