comment Single mandatory question with multiple “I accept condition X” (checkboxes?) in a Google Docs Form?
While that's a noble intention, I assure you that the reality will be much more along the lines of "shoot, I missed a couple boxes? check, check, check, OK! on my way now..."

comment Single mandatory question with multiple “I accept condition X” (checkboxes?) in a Google Docs Form?
Is there a particular reason why you can't just have all of the conditions listed, and have them check a single box? My school's wireless authentication page has 2 checkboxes, and I'd say at least 9/10 people only check the first one, then ask "why'd the page show up again?"

comment When does Dropbox delta?
I believe that Dropbox actually uses rsync internally. I can't find a good reference for that off-hand right now, but if I do, I'll expand this into a full answer. It definitely does use some sort of differencing algorithm.

If you update your answer @phwd to include that info, I'll mark it as accepted. If you'd rather, I can post a separate self-answer with screenshots. Up to you!

comment Is there a way to disable Facebook's email address?
Hmm. From looking at the 2nd link, it appears that it's set such that even with my email address, anybody who isn't Facebook friends with me wouldn't be able to send a message via email. I tried sending an email from an account not associated with my FB account, and it didn't show up in Other. I then got an email back from FB saying "Based on the email preferences of the person you're trying to email, this message could not be delivered."

Bummer. I'm inclined to believe you, but do you happen to have any reputable sources for this, e.g. Facebook documentation and the like?

comment How can I verify my PayPal account without giving them direct access to my bank account?
I finally got this to work after adding a temporary address (I'm living away from "home" at college right now) to my credit card. It was a bit of a pain, but finally worked.
