Lapsed Catholic. Luddite Geek. Shy Chatterbox. A mass of contradictions wrapped in an open enigma.

Some days, I really regret making http://stackoverflow.com/a/3638034/14250 a comm. wiki question. Then I get back to helping people solve problems rather than trying to help myself score rep. (Man, but 370 upvotes. Three. Hundred. And. Seventy.)

comment Gift idea for breastfeeding mom
+1 for cup. BIG cup. With a lid and a straw. My partner's currently breastfeeding, and a cup that she can drop from a short height without spilling everywhere is a godsend. Especially as she's stuck for 20 minutes/half an hour, unable to move, with water being drained out of her by our adorable spawn.

Depends on the circs. I was pretty worried and low, and alcohol would have been the wrong choice.

Now granted, my child may not share my opinion, but it can be added to the list of stuff your teenager blames you for.

comment What are the risks of posting baby pictures online?
+1, & This is likely to end up being the accepted one, as it's got the risks in, but is more in tune with my feelings on them. Possibly it's generational, but I personally am unworried about people I know seeing my baby photos. The bullies who genuinely get under your skin don't use 6-year old baby photos you can blame your parents for, they go for the embarrassing things you do without thinking, or just making something up. I personally was teased for 3 years about supposedly being in love with a fictional pink hedgehog. Being a baby at one point would have been much easier to ignore somehow.

+1 because it lays out the risks clearly and sensibly, with the caveats. But actually, I'd say Twitter's got adequate protection, and has the highly handy idiom that past data is less important and harder to retrieve.

Doesn't have any. Doesn't wear them generally.

I get the reasoning behind controlled access, but what's the rationale for the labelling ban.
