iPhoto isn't intended for serious photographers. That's what Aperture or Lightroom is for. iPhoto is intended for average people to organise their happy snaps.

Is intuitive a new word for slow? if so then yes they are extremely intuitive. Or maybe it means over priced piece of white plastic junk.  >:D

Macs don't get on my nerves as much as Mac users although present company seems to know much more than your average Mac user who thinks they are magic miracle machines that don't break and never need maintenance or performance tweaks.


Mac OS is Ok I guess, I like finder, I like a few other things on there, I cant stand I-tunes, what is I-photo? It sounds like it would suck along with all the other "I" software, can you turn it off or better yet uninstall it? (er wait I mean drag it to the trashcan), I despise FCP its like most other editing software packages only slower and uses "industry standard codecs" (BTW, industry standard = some expensive proprietary old crap that keeps people from innovating and purchasing new gear)

 I would recommend building a hackintosh if you feel like you must use one, get the best of both worlds and make it duel boot (guess which world will render faster?) better yet make it triple boot and add Linux too.

I feel your pain, ghendofni, same situation here . However, never had a problem with iTunes. I don't feel like it tells me how to run my own computer.

I am in the process of reorganizing all my music. You seem unable to simply tell iTunes to remove all the ones it cannot find but instead have to delete the whole music folder and rebuild it each time.

General Discussion / Re: Gender "Spaces"
« Last post by Harry Black on Today at 06:21:18 PM »
I think the "lack of a need" of safe spaces for men is assumed as a default. I don't think it represents reality.

I think it would provide a place for men to work out who currently avoid gyms for a multitude of reasons that would be addressed by a "Curves for Men." Do you think there would there be any detriment to anybody if a "Curves for Men" existed?
I dont think so. Do you need to ban fit men aswell? I cant see it being very useful otherwise but then I guess it becomes a weird sort of gym. Especially if you meet your goals early and get kicked out!(I know you didnt suggest that at all. I was just rambling.)
But the danger of allowing men only spaces in principle I think outweighs the potential benefits.
Those dangers are that the old guard sexist rich guys can then quite easily co opt that defense to suddenly return to the problems we have spent decades trying to solve. Male only networking spaces where decisions are made and women are excluded.
Part of the burden of being the party in power is that we are asked to take certain hardships in exchange for our privledge.
Similarly there are african american fraternitys but its not ok for whites to try and keep african americans out of any other fraternity. Context is everything.

I know it is a minority view.  I'm asking for the reason it's a minority view, when her premises seem much more widely accepted among feminists, and the conclusion seems to logically follow from those premises.  Is it the degree to which those premises are actually accepted?  Or an error in logic?  I know what arguments I would make but I don't know what arguments an activist feminist would make.

Could you clarify the premises you're talking about, Pusher Robot?
