This really is rather something you should be asking oDesk.

comment Using two arguments / triggers in an IFTTT recipe
No, I'm afraid there isn't. (I've been looking for a way to daisy-chain IFTTT triggers myself. Perhaps that's something they could add as a premium feature.)

comment Can someone simply refuse to ship merchandise on eBay?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about how eBay counters fraud. It has nothing to do with the actual functioning of the web app.

comment How to report viral hoax blogs on WordPress?
I am shocked - shocked! - to see a site that is less-than-truthful on the internet. Honestly, this isn't abuse. If someone left the content of this site in a brochure on your windshield would you report it to the police? That said, you might be able to justify reporting it as spam, because a number of those ads appear to violate the wordpress.com TOS.

comment Is there a way to create new Category Tabs in GMail?
No, not really. The closest you might be able to come is the Multiple Inboxes Lab which lets your set up a few (three?) different Inboxes based on your criteria (e.g., starred, important, a particular filter, etc.).

comment More than one Google account
Yes, you can have multiple Google Accounts. I have three myself (not counting a Google Apps account from my employer, not to mention a couple of email addresses I've reserved for my kids). What do you mean by "have more than one gmail in an account"? A Google Account = a Gmail account. You get one Gmail address with your Google Account. That said, there are ways to manage several Gmail addresses through one Gmail mailbox. Please edit your question to clarify what it is you're trying to do.

comment Is there a way to find all images or media in a WordPress blog that aren't used in posts or pages?
Is there a reason your "Unattached" list in the Media browser (example.com/wp-admin/upload.php?detached=1) doesn't work?

comment How do I obfuscate all contacts in Gmail?
It's unclear what you're after here. Even if you did "obfuscate" your contacts, Google leaves contact information available to you for at least 30 days (so you can rollback an error). And, of course, Google has backups of your data which basically last forever. What, exactly, are you trying to achieve?

comment Evernote syncing: Can I prevent automatic syncing to speed up & stabilize my mobile experience?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an iPhone app.

comment How to make a YouTube full screen stretch over two monitors?
While not strictly off-topic here, I think perhaps this question would do better on Super User.

comment IFTTT to send me a message using mobile messaging
If SMS doesn't work for you, what have you already tried? Obviously you can use the time/date channel for your trigger, but you need to select one of their available channels to send the message too. Go to ifttt.com/channels and see which one will suit you best.

comment How do I change my password on ebay?
The eBay interface has changed a lot since Phil originally posted this. In light of eBay's recent breach, I've updated this post to be more accurate.

comment IFTTT Twitter DM recipe not always firing
Seems like it should be working to me. I think you should contact the IFTTT people directly. This sounds like it might be a bug. In my experience they're pretty responsive.

comment Why do classic Google Maps and the modern Google Maps show different types of driving times?
Because the newer Google Maps has a better algorithm? Because the newer Maps is using Waze data?
