    I see plenty of booby shots, but no half-dressed hunky dudes. What gives?

    Why do you consider this approach more hackish than the other solutions?

    Men make up the majority of the tech industry.

    You can also float left for a similar effect. Bonus is that you can center all your floated items together. I use this all the time for centered navigation.

    In addition to what Becky said, we get this same question when I help run the booth for Girl Develop It at a conference. Men will come up and ask where Boy Develop It is (as a very obvious joke). My answer? It's every other booth at the conference.

    I searched for a decent (read: not horrendously ugly) cycle tracker for a long time, and it just didn't exist. I eventually settled on Fertility Friend, but the interface was buggy and confusing. Groove looks excellent, and I'll definitely be giving it a go.

  • Posted to Ask DN: What's your daily schedule?, Mar 30, 2015
    • 7:30 or 8AM: Wake up. Let the dogs out. Shower (every other day). Brush hair & teeth. Pack lunch. Get dog food ready. Let the dogs back in.
    • 8:30AM: Latest I can leave for work and arrive on time. Commute is 20 minutes by car + 10 minutes walking. Going to experiment with biking one day this week.
    • 9:00AM to Noon: Check email, Basecamp, Forecast. Work on things.
    • Noon to 1PM: Lunch break.
    • 1PM to 6PM: Progressively get less productive as the day wears on.
    • 6PM: Walk & drive home.
    • 6:30PM to 10PM: Let the dogs out. Make & eat a meal. Flex time for house chores, errands, exercise, and hobbies.
    • 10PM-Midnight: Visit the boyfriend (or he visits me). Eat another small meal or snacks. Get ready for bed. Rinse & repeat.

    It's not too different on the days when I work from home. I just wake up later and start my flex time earlier, due to no commute.

    Schwinn Fastback. I'm hoping to move to a more bikeable area in the spring. I miss biking to work every day.

    2004 Scion xA (manual). Easily transports either 4 other humans or 1 other human and 2 dogs. I miss riding my bike everywhere. Had to move away from the office to give the dogs more room.
