    The Virus Chronicles

    1- Nicotine could prevent smokers from catching the coronavirus
    The study suggests nicotine potentially blocks the virus from attaching to cells.

    2- France has moved to prevent the stockpiling of nicotine products after the country’s health minister expressed interest in research suggesting that the addictive stimulant could help lessen Covid 19 infection.

    3- let me contribute to the Fuzzy situation:
    my own experience: when i have flu or strong runny nose, i take a tablet or 2 of the natural product St. John's Wort. it is primarily for mild depression. but its action over flu i have discovered myself. in fact i relief quickly if i haven't used St. John's Wort for months, ie the less you take it over time the stronger its effect.
    so someone of the doctors check this against coronaVirus please.
    there is some old research here about the Antiviral Activity of the St. John's Wort :

    the logic of Theo
    is interesting and nice. it needs at least 4 cooperative friends to do the job in one year.
    look this 2010 thread:
    Mr Zale have "painted" powerbasic using C language as a brush, unfortunately he died 2 years later.

    They did present 32 vs. 64-bit as a false dichotomy, as if you had to choose between one or another. With the right compiler(s), you can write code that can be compiled to 32 or 64-bit without code changes.
