The UN has congratulated Vietnam on the progress of the LGBT rights movement in the Southeast Asian nation.

'This is vital in order to be better understood, to reduce social prejudice and stigma based on sexual orientation and gender identity, and to contribute to development of relevant legislation to ensure the rights of the community are protected,' said Pratibha Mehta, the UN's resident co-ordinator in Vietnam, Vietnamnet reports.

Last year Vietnam's government started consulting on same-sex marriage and the country held its first Pride march (a Pride cycle).

For this year's IDAHO (International Day Against Homophobia) last Friday (17 May) Vietnamese LGBT rights activists iSEE and ICS organized 'waking up to the rainbow' events in four cities.

'Vietnam is leading Asian countries in the development of homosexual people's rights,' said Huynh Minh Thao, communication manager at ICS.

This year's Viet Pride will be on 2 to 4 August with a campaign to encourage LGBT people to further their education.

Legalizing same-sex marriage is supported by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Justice in Vietnam. A vote in the National Assembly is expected in 2014.

I've been avoiding buying a labeler because (1) the handheld models didn't seem versatile enough, and (2) I thought, what can I do with this that I can't do with, say, a black marker and paper labels? Then, after the 50th time I couldn't figure out what something was because the marker had rubbed off, or the paper label had disintegrated, I thought, it's time to check out the labelers. You should ideally use only genuine Canon ink cartridges but if you're strapped for cash, you can purchase the cheaper generic versions (non-OEM) of the CLI-8 cartridges.

I tried "aftermarket" ink (about $10 for the counterpart to this item) after going through the ink that came with my MP600.
