comment Show planned highways at all zoom levels in Google Maps
Remember, you can use OSM's API to get this data without having to look at a map at all. That's the big advantage to using OSM instead of google maps (in my mind).

The Twitter API might be able to help?

This doesn't answer your question, but have you tried openstreetmap.org to see if they have this data?

You could use a browser plugin like "download them all", or some sort of scraper?

comment Does Google Shopping offer search in local stores?
There should be an "available nearby" checkbox, although, from experience, I can tell you that it rarely works. So, yes, Google offers it, but no, they don't do a good job of finding local products.

comment Yahoo! Pipes - Combine Page Linked Feeds Into One Feed
I ran curl -D headers.txt -o out2.txt "http://www.higheredjobs.com/rss/categoryFeed.cfm?catID=212" and headers.txt shows "Content-Type: text/html;charset=UTF-8". Can you change this?

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 Why is Gmail suddenly showing future time stamp on an old, read message thread?
This doesn't help you, but this happened to me once (and just once) too. An ancient thread suddenly became new, but the newest message was empty. I replied, thinking the sender had just messed up somehow, but the sender hadn't sent the message and "view original" showed no headers. Weird.

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.

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.

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?
