Filing the stem after you've cut it

So, I've read that some people file the stem after cutting it off. How exactly is this done? With a metal nail file? With a wooden one? With sand paper?

I'm also curious if the same thing could be done to the grip rings?

Yes, I know I could just turn my Divacup inside out. For some reason, though, I really don't want to. Also, I'd like the outside to be perfect too...

Also, does anyone find that in cold weather the cup gets...firmer? Or that you notice it more when the weather is below freezing? I was tramping around the woods last weekend, and during that time I felt the cup more than normal. This feeling mostly went away when I got fully warm (which took a while.) It's not that uncomfortable, just that I feel it inside me, right at the entrance to the vagina. (No matter where I move it, this is where it sits.) It felt like it was firmer than usual...

This is important, as I do live in a (very) cold weather climate.

Or, maybe I just need a shorter cup...I really don't know...overall my experience with the Diva has been positive, but I don't know if feeling it sometimes (which is usually not uncomfortable, but sometimes when I walk it will rub the entrance to the vagina a bit. It doesn't stick out enough for me to notice 80% of the time, though, it's hard to describe.) Anyway, I don't know if this is just a getting used to it type thing (sorta like I really felt my contacts in my eyes once I got them and now I don't) or if I should look into getting a new (shorter) cup.

Sorry this is all over the place. I have papers in 2 foreign languages to write, an application to fill out, and I need a nap. Hope it all made sense...
