comment Searching for populations of a list of cities
You might want to play around with a db I created from the geonames.org data. Sample query: 69d09f284af2d9321d9a6863d0defa2d.geonames.db.barrycarter.info This isn't very detailed, includes cities whose alternate name is Alexandria, and exposes a duplicate in the geonames.org database.

Have you tried geonames.org?

comment Gmail web says “not sent to spam”, downloaded version doesn't
No, no. Your suggestion was good, thank you. I just meant that this is getting to be too much work (for me <G>) for something that I thought was simple.

OK, I've actually done this by pulling "[Gmail]/Spam" in my getmail rc file. However, I dislike pulling to multiple folders, especially when all my labelled messages are also in INBOX.

Wow. I use getmail myself. I'm guessing this is a special Thunderbird feature, not part of the IMAP spec (as you note).

OK, I tried this. The label shows up in webmail, but not in the IMAP-downloaded version of the email. I was hoping for an "X-Label:" header, but no such luck.

It's not 100% automatic, but you could try iMacros?

Right, but the fact that gmail originally labelled it spam and then moved it to inbox due to a filter is lost forever (unless gmail has filter logs, which I don't think it does)

Thanks, this is what I thought. If I delete the message permanently from the web interface, the information really is lost? Since my only copy (the IMAP copy) won't have it?

Ummm, this answer seems a little overgeneralized.

voxox.com k7.net ipkall.com sipgate.com all may do this, but you may have to use voice verification, not SMS verification with some of these.

There are mail servers that reject mail if you don't have an SPF record??

comment Where can I download complete US base maps for a WMS/WFS (GeoServer) to serve to my webapp offline?
You can download OSM maps and use them offline. census.gov also has lots of mapping data you can download (thought I think OSM includes this anyway)

comment How to import all the contents of a folder into a Gmail account?
Try dragging the messages over 1000 at a time or something? I'd create a new Gmail folder for them and then transfer to INBOX later. I think Gmail can also check remote IMAP servers for mail and bring them into your Gmail account.

comment Figuring out who is the owner of a Google Spreadsheets form
Google's Picasa does this too, and I'm pretty sure it's intentional. For example, you'd never know the album picasaweb.google.com/113310224845895190889 belonged to me, unless I told you. I'm sure Google knows + would reveal the owner under subpoena or similar legal process.

If it helps find an answer, this is "*66" for most telcos.
