comment How does Google Books detect unusual traffic from a computer?
Your IP address is probably the major criteria. Things like User-Agent, lack of cookies/session id, etc, are probably secondary criteria. Using torproject.org may help

comment View PayPal history prior to 2011
If you go to "download history" (click on the Statements down arrow and select "download"), you can get this data 2 years at a time. I never noticed until now that the online history now stops at 11/20/2011 (3 year limit), that must be something new.

The recipe I created above is now working properly (but doesn't really answer your question)

comment URL manipulation in IFTTT
Woops. I meant to say that the do.convertapi.com page sets cookies or something. In other words, you can't just jump directly to printing a page, you have to navigate their site (and thereby get the appropriate cookies) before printing. Some utility sites dislike it when people try to jump past their navigation.

comment How to archive all saved data contained in a RSS feed on feedly?
Do you mean a specific feed(s) or everything on feedly?

comment How can I join Yahoo without giving a phone number?
You can cheat and use a service like maskme.com, but it's not free. You can also get a Google voice number or something (that forwards to your real phone), or use twilio.com. There are also free trials of forwarding phone numbers.

comment URL manipulation in IFTTT
I just visited your last URL and got "bad request". I'm guessing the site sets some cookies or something, and you can't just jump to the print/ page directly.

comment HTML emails into Wordpress with IFTTT
So you want only emails with a certain word/tag in them to be posted as Wordpress drafts? Could you use email to email filtering and then post to Wordpress?

comment Why does IFTTT dislike this RSS feed?
Thanks, Julien! I added a pubDate and I just got a "Feed Trigger Error" in my logs. Time to contact support, methinks

That's so crazy, it might just work!

comment How to sync files from OneDrive to Dropbox?
I'm guessing you can get OneDrive to send you an email when a file is uploaded, but the email won't include the contents of the file. You might be able to fiddle with this idea and get it to work, though.

comment Is it possible download a mp3 file when new RSS feed is provided?
Purely as a test (that probably won't work), I've created ifttt.com/recipes/219559-webapps-59072-test -- you can help me test by using this recipe :)

comment Why does IFTTT dislike this RSS feed?
Wow, an actual official answer-- this InterWebs thing is terrific ;) ... but seriously: this is just a test feed to make sure I can get things working: real data will come later. According to ifttt, "created 5 days ago never triggered". Is there a reason ifttt isn't seeing this feed as updated? What should I do to make this feed look like its continuously updated?

comment Is it possible download a mp3 file when new RSS feed is provided?
As @AlE. notes, none of the feed data you can choose has the MP3 file in this case. The tag that does is the "enclosure" URL, which ifttt does not have on its dropdown menu. You could write a custom feed to "wrap" this feed and/or a webpage that redirects based on the feed URL, but both would require going above and beyond what ifttt does by itself.

comment craigslist anonymous e-mail relay service usage
Yes, any email sent to/from craigslist relay is anonymized. I've had long back and forth conversations with people where neither of us learn each other's email address. You can also test to confirm.

comment Gmail: filter all emails forwarded from specific address
A dumb answer: forward your uni mail to username+uni@gmail.com instead and filter to that address. If you have username@gmail.com, username+anything@gmail.com also works

comment How do I filter messages that are sent to a single recipient?
If an email is sent to two of your addresses, does gmail treat it as two separate emails for filtering purposes? If so, my solution will work. If not, it won't. Anyone know for sure? I'm too lazy to test :)

comment Why does IFTTT dislike this RSS feed?
@jonsca Waiting to see if IFTTT accepts the revised, validated feed. So far, the logs show it hasn't tried to access the feed since I fixed it.
