Ash's Random Post Dater

Use this form to set ALL posts in the selected category to a random date between these two values.

This will update the post dates on ALL posts within the selected category/tag (or ALL posts in your wordpress blog if both are set to default). Please do not use if you do not want to reset ALL post dates. I do not recommend using this on a site with lots of live posts - especially if you use a permalink structure that includes the date in the url. I use it on new sites (add all content, then set all posts to random date in the past). Use at your own risk! You will lose the current post date time (it only changes the date posted - nothing else)

Only use one of the following two. Leave both at their defaults ("ALL CATEGORIES"/"ALL TAGS") to reorder ALL posts

Reorder post dates in this category:

(leave on "ALL CATEGORIES" if you don't want to reorder all within a certain category)

Reorder post dates with this tag slug (use the tag slug, not the tag):

(leave on "ALL TAGS" if you don't want to reorder all within a certain category)

Earliest Day - how many days back do you want the maximum one?

(put at 0 to put all posts in future)

Latest Day - Leave at 0 to make sure all posts are BACK dated.

(leave 0 to put all posts in past)

For example if you wanted your posts randomly set to a date in the next 30 days set the latest day as 30, the earliest day at 0

If you wanted your posts randomly set to a day in the previous 180 days then set the latest day as 0 and the earliest day as 180.

It randomly sets each post - the posts are not spaced out at exact intervals. It will readjust ALL your posts. Please make sure that you want ALL your posts to be randomised.

(Clicking this will randomly reorder all posts)

Creatine Overview Information


Supplements I Personally Use & Store I Buy From


Creatine is a chemical that is normally found in the body, mostly in muscles. It is made by theCreatine body and can also be obtained from certain foods. Fish and meats are good sources of creatine. Creatine can also be made in the laboratory.

Creatine is most commonly used for improving exercise performance and increasing muscle mass in athletes and older adults. There is some science supporting the use of creatine in improving the athletic performance of young, healthy people during brief high-intensity activity such as sprinting. But older adults don’t seem to benefit. Creatine doesn’t seem to improve strength or body composition in people over 60.

Creatine use is widespread among professional and amateur athletes and has been acknowledged by well-known athletes such as Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa, and John Elway. Following the finding that carbohydrate solution further increases muscle creatine levels more than creatine alone, creatine sports drinks have become popular.

Creatine is allowed by the International Olympic Committee, National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and professional sports. However, the NCAA no longer allows colleges and universities to supply creatine to their students with school funds. Students are permitted to buy creatine on their own and the NCAA has no plans to ban creatine unless medical evidence indicates that it is harmful. With current testing methods, detection of supplemental creatine use would not be possible.

In addition to improving athletic performance, creatine is used for congestive heart failure (CHF), depression, bipolar disorder, Parkinson’s disease, diseases of the muscles and nerves, an eye disease called gyrate atrophy, and high cholesterol. It is also used to slow the worsening of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease), rheumatoid arthritis, McArdle’s disease, and for various muscular dystrophies.

Americans use more than 4 million kilograms of creatine each year.

How does it work?

Creatine is involved in making the energy muscles need to work.

Vegetarians and other people who have lower total creatine levels when they start taking creatine supplements seem to get more benefit than people who start with a higher level of creatine. Skeletal muscle will only hold a certain amount of creatine; adding more won’t raise levels any more. This “saturation point” is usually reached within the first few days of taking a “loading dose.”
