Testing and feedback from only one person

I'm currently writing my master thesis on visualisation of
positioning data. The thesis is written for a hospital here in
Norway, and my challenge is that there is only one interested party -
a nurse who works at the hospital and who has a high responisibility
to make sure that patients and doctors are at their expected location
at the expected time.

When reading litterature about participatory design I only find
examples where a larger number of persons would take advantage of the
product being developed.

Form Field & Error Assistance Models

The influence of pre-populating web forms

I'm currently working on a revision to a checkout process in which we're debating the pros & cons of pre-populating certain fields.

The application allows users to select an item for "purchase" and pledge an amount related to the value of that item. This means they can in fact pledge more than the stated amount for the item, or the exact amount of the item. They obviously cannot pledge lower. 

The debate is such:

Do we pre-populate the form field with the amount of the selected item or leave it blank to encourage some percentage of greater pledge.

[ixda] horizontal log in fields on web apps

HiI've been noticing that a lot of web applications like Virb, Vimeo,
Pageonce, etc have a horizontal form for the log in. How usable is this?
Is it better / worse than the standard practice of displaying the username &
password fields vertically?
