Not to worry, I'm sure this first probe into geek-match costume space will go viral, and that events for geek(s) of every gender seeking geek(s) of any gender will soon follow.
But, perhaps by clicking the =>macro cosmic zoom-out icon enough times we can look across the whole planet, we can ask the question: isn't human (primate) sexuality, expressed in our internal sense of self's "gestalt" (foreground perception) of our body's location on a continuum of gender identities ... expressed in gender preference in sexual partner(s), intimate behavior, short- and long-term bonding ... one of the most complex masks we wear ?
And, a mask that does change, even though for most(?) people the fiction the mask doesn't change ... ever ... at all ... is a reliable self-evident truth. Others enjoy changing masks, without altering biological endowment at all; and, for some, a radical mask switch can be so demanded by the dissonance between psychic gender and physical sexual form, that surgery and hormones are needed to re-cycle the old chassis, so a new mask of the yearned-for gender can be worn permanently.
But, who am I to ponder how many roads intersect at such complex intersections of genetics, environment, testosterone, estrogen, child-rearing, socialization after childhood, and cultural context ?
Could we ask, even, if the personas of Lounge high-frequency posters are: masks ?

When are we ever not wearing a mask ? Why do Barbie and Ken never have last names ?

Yep, got the 10.1 Note.
In general - pretty impressed with it.
I'm running Cyanogen on it and runs really well. Do lose some stuff if you put a custom ROM like the split windows and IR blaster capability but I prefer bare bones to the Samsung Touch Wiz stuff.
The pen is very awesome and the only reason why I bought it. It's not paper and pen but it's very close and with some of the apps out there you can get vector based writing which is a huge bonus.
The only two downsides I've found:
- 30 pin port
The 30 pin port instead of Micro USB isn't a biggie, it's just I can't use my other cables, again, not something I cry about.
The resolution isn't that bad, in fact it's quite nice but sometimes you can see the pixels, but does depend on what you're doing. A full HD screen crammed into there would be very nice, in fact if a another version comes out with full HD, I'll get it. The same screen technology that is in the S3 would be nice here, just full HD.
The glare is slightly annoying, most of the time it's fine, but it's the same most electronic devices and screen reflection.
Anyways, great device, decent build quality, sound via closed headphones is very awesome. Great for graphics work, some UI design and creating rough artwork I can reference later.
Have hooked up a Bluetooth keyboard/mouse to it as well and that can be very useful in certain situations. Also hooked up a PS3 controller - and that is very cool. Haven't tried plugging in hard drives into it (haven't got the OTG cable) but I'm sure it can manage that.
Overall - I'd recommend it. The pen made the purchase for me, otherwise would have gone with a Transformer Prime (TF700 I believe). Did look at iPads but no pen capability there except for add on devices. Plus I already have heaps of Android apps on the phone. Didn't really look at the Surface nor did I want to, it's not here in NZ anyways. But am running Windows 8 on the laptop and... well, that's another story.
Well, it appears that VS2012s windows forms designer cannot cope with designing for s from the 3.5 framework if the base form is from another project. I found this with the SharpDevelop 3.2 source, which I am referencing for a project of mine, as I tried to view a form from inside vs.
VS states that the base type <<whatever>> cannot be loaded, but there are no errors in the code view, but there are hundreds of errors in the error list.
VS also highlights class names normally, but shows the blue error squiggle as well. The message states that the type cannot be found, but all other operations work correctly.
I really hope I don't have to go back to VS2010, as that is the last version that actually viewed forms correctly!
I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
You are talking about the XAML designer? If yes, then this thing has had its troubles ever since VS2008.
I have used WPF user controls as views for MVP (as in Model View Presenter). That made programs very portable between WinForms, WPF or any other UI. Merely the views had to be rewritten according to the UI I wanted to use in their own assemblies.
In the designer this should have simply been a matter of adding the assemblies and namespaces of the views in XAML and everything should have worked. It did not. If the namespace was xxx.project.views, then the designer would try to snoop through namespace xxx.project as well. There were no classes in that namespace, so the designer found nothing and complained about numerous things it did not find, not that it ever was told to look for them. Your problem sounds similar.
