A friend of mine is looking for your positive experiences with diet and exercise. She has health problems and needs to make changes, but isn't sure where to start.

I think she might be looking specifically at programs, for the support and structure.

I know that some of the people on my friends list have found sane approaches to improving fitness, away from all of the fat shaming, fads, and other bullshit that's out there. So if you have any helpful thoughts, head over--she'll appreciate your comments.

Alright, those of you who shop for your bras online:

Where do you do it?

I'm tired of buying bras one band size too big because they don't last as long, and given that even if I do that I'm an unusual size, keeping myself in bras is a disgustingly expensive habit. I need to buy the right damn size and no one in this town carries it.


(I would prefer a shop that ships to people in the continental United States for free, to minimize the loss if I buy something that doesn't fit and have to return it.)

... not for me, for a lady who would like to show off her reusable coffee sleeves.

She needs a webhost that's relatively simple to use. She's going to hire someone to make her the website, but presumably, she'll have to be able to update it on her own later.

Right now she just wants a simple site with her contact information, but having the capability to later add an online order form is important.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I haven't had to use my own webhost for years.

I'm sure that most of the people who read my journal remember the outrage over Wasilla charging rape victims for their rape kits under Sarah Palin's watch. Well, that wasn't an isolated incident -- and it's still happening across the United States.

VAWA funds are contigent on discontinuing the loathsome and deeply discriminatory practice, but the regulations aren't being enforced.

Texas Charging Rape Victims for Rape Kits
The State of Texas is currently demanding that rape victims pay for their own rape kits—and if they don't, they face ruined credit and debt collectors. An average rape kit can cost up to $1800.
Link is to the Jezebel post, since it contains a good collection of links if you want to read more.

And on a completely unrelated note:

I have an external drive that I use to keep large files like videos. It's 500GB, and currently has about 250GB on it -- in other words, it's not full.

I'm having recurring problems copying files over to it. I get an error message that says that the file can't be read or written. It's not the files. They're from various sources and in various formats and they'll copy to the hard drive fine.

It was used with a Windows machine before (I'm now on a Mac) and so I tried reformatting it, but as soon as I had gotten about 200GB worth of files back on it, it started acting up again. It's gotten worse as it's gotten more full--it was just every once in a while a file wouldn't copy before, but now most won't copy.

Does anyone have any idea what to try next?
