Anyone had any luck with custom cup configuring using their iPod screen? No matter what shape I'm trying for, my bra ends up having this sort of breastplate look—not sure if it's because I downloaded the software on a Windows machine or because I have The Ride of the Valkyries on my iPod.

Why even bother with custom, I mean have you checked out all the presets? You can choose from Champagne Glass, Ski Jump, National Geographic, Cannonball, Barbie, Tomboy, Silicone, Cupola, Helium (my fave), Marilyn, Rosebud, Twins of the Roe, Grand Canyon, and over 200 other popular shapes, all with one great bra!

Ladies I can't seem to get the hang of synching the Reminda-Tweak app with my Entourage calendar. Natch when I call VS tech support they tell me to call Microsoft and when I call Microsoft they tell me to call VS.

Have you tried restarting the bra? If that doesn't work, you may have to reinstall the software. BE SURE TO SAVE YOUR PREFERENCES to an ext hard drive! First time I reinstalled, it switched from Earth Mother to Banana, ouch!

I'm having trouble with the DreamGirl app, which is supposed to adjust the size and shape of my breasts in response to pupil dilation, pulse rate, and body temperature of the nearest adult male. Works OK except when I'm walking my Great Dane, Soren, they take the shape of T-bone steaks which is painful and, IMHO and that of most of my human guy friends, unsightly :(

Get a canine-override patch from the shareware site www.geekgirls.net. Yeah VS should provide one but hey, at least they use open-source code!

Hello, I'm about to leave for a trek in Nepal and I'm trying to figure out how to activate the Weather-Vain feature (barometer-coupled shaping, corrects for elev). Also the UnderWhere GPS system. Do I need special software besides what's loaded with the bra, and if so where can I get it?

You need special software but Weather-Vain 2.0 is really beta, lousy with bugs and should not have been released. I did a skydive in DeLand, the bra overcompensated and pushed my tits down so far I couldn't get at the ripcord. Lucky there's a manual override or I woulda been catfood.
