Re: Dresses marketed to both men and women

Ah, but Carl, that crossing of a few feet may just as well be a chasm a thousand feet wide for the majority of men, more's the pity. I sometimes make that journey but seldom see a skirt I would want to buy. Most of my collection have come from ebay or charity shops.

Re: Gun control

Dave, that is a refreshing post, with common sense solutions. Not that they will get implemented, of course. I agree also with Carl in that your society's ills need correcting. Since your American Rifle Association seems to have a lot of political clout then maybe the first step should be to reduce ...

Re: “I never joke about my work 007.”

To be honest I've never ever had to justify myself to the great unwashed about my skirt wearing. I've obviously given the "comfort and in half the world men wear skirts" speech but to very little interest. Most just seem accept that I like to wear a skirt and leave it at that. I've never had anyone ...

HnS, that's why the facility is called "auto-corrupt".

Re: PDX Dave

Dave, thank you. I'll try and put as much distance, time-wise, between you and I but it's not easy. I was talking to a customer the other day and I said to her, "Have you noticed that as you get older it gets more difficult to bend down?" She replied, "I have the answer to that. The ground gets lowe...

Re: Gun control

That's fine, you have the legal right to possess arms. But why do you need guns that can fire several hundred rounds per minute or possess thirty or forty firearms? It's not the owning of the guns that I have issue with it's the attitude of glorifying the use of them and the pride at killing animals...

Re: “I never joke about my work 007.”

I just skip all these threads that split arguments about sex, gender and so on and stifle a yawn. Completely pointless to me. It's a bit like the two elephants listening to two scientists discussing the definitions and functions of "elephantness" and one elephant saying to the other, "Don't know wha...

Dave, yes, machines are made to serve man but Carl is an UNPAID administrator for the forum with lot of other things to occupy his time and you would be causing him a lot more development, upgrade and administration work so accept his decision to not take on your suggested modification since there a...

Re: “I never joke about my work 007.”

I was once told off for wearing a jumper and no tie for a formal project meeting at the parent company's main offices instead of a shirt and tie. That was about 1999 and I was well integrated in the IT culture. Yes, to a certain extent we wrote our own rules because of the "youth culture" of compute...

Re: Here we go again...

An application is what it is. The more you modify it and add extra non-native functionality the more difficult upgrading it is. You have to document what changes have been made and applying the same changes on the upgraded environment may not be so easy. Having spent nearly 20 years in IT Developmen...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

faldaguy, I have a red skort. I wear it a lot - it's short and of a material that dries quickly if wet. The built in underwear is comfortable and I would get more if I ever see them around. I'm sorry that you don't find them comfortable but really there's no real difference between a skort and a ski...

Re: Swim skirts: Crossing a line?

Carl, I feel like I'm living in a city of enlightenment as I don't detect any element of 17th century puritanism here. Even the crime rate isn't particularly high. That's why I enjoy living here so much. Anywhere else I choose to live is bound to be worse. The Vikings raiding from the Ouse can be a ...

Happy birthday Jenn. BTW did you know that any calories in any cakes/sweets that you eat on your birthday don't count! Really, ( as Trump has said many times ) everyone knows that. :lol:

Re: Coming Soon: Gucci’s Gender-fluid Collection

Of course it is. There isn't a major designer/manufacturer/retailer with the b*lls to come out and market a skirt for men. Oh, some have pussy-footed around at it but they're afraid of the negative response to a full-on up front marketing campaign. That's because they have the same instinctual image...
