I was looking at exercise options, and of course I considered getting a bike. But i realized that the main issue was that I didn't have any place to put it when i was not riding it. We don't have any extra room inside the apartment to store a bike, and there isn't any place outside the apartment where I could safely keep it.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Just wear skirts, or a dress, which ever you feel like wearing that day. Just make sure your shoes match the outfit.
Ok I'm going to start this off easy
1: Gender Identity is a SELF identity. People should not have a gender identity forced on them that is not the one they use.
2: There is more than just Male and Female. Other identities might include: Intersex, bi-gender, and a-gender. Transgender is not a gender identity in and of itself.
And on to the more technical points
3: When designing systems do not consider gender to be a fixed field for a person. And for that matter remember that names are not fixed either. Also keep in mind that a persons REAL name and their legal name might not be the same
4: In the parts of the system that allow for the update of other personal information, allow for name and gender to be changed.
and on the business process side
5: don't make the requirements for changing a gender marker too restrictive. And especially do NOT require proof of surgery before making a change.
And now I will state for the record that I AM transgender. Documentation changes are one of the biggest hurdles that we face. BTW slashdot will not allow for changing user names, i would like to keep my 5 digit it, but move away from my old masculine sounding username.
When I was looking at photo management software, one of the primary features I wanted was that the original image NEVER be modified. From my point of view it is extremely important that no matter what I do, I should always be able to go back to the original jpeg or raw image captured by the camera. probably the best solution is to store the original image, store in a database all the metadata and modification data and an image file made by taking the original and applying all the changes.
When my wife wants to take a picture of the kids doing something cute we need the either the batteries in the camera to not be discharged, or for there to be a charged set of batteries ready to go.
So I bought a bunch of 2500mAh batteries thinking these would be a good thing. but they didn't seem to last as long when shooting and they were often discharged after sitting for a while. I found out a couple of things, the first is that after using these batteries for a while I would end up with one cell that was discharged more than the others. This was enough for the camera to say that I had low batteries. The other thing was that if I charged up a set of these batteries, a week later the wouldn't have enough charge to run the camera. These batteries had a very high self discharge rate.
So at the end of it, its no good to have high advertised capacity if its not going to be there you
I have had good luck with sanyo batteries. The new sanyo eneloops have a low enough self discharge rate that out of the package they have a usable charge
