Examples of complex checkbox treeviews

We have a thick desktop app that uses a checkbox treeview to show data
layers that are available to display in a separate window. However,
although Checkboxes look nice and consistent in this display they are
the wrong control to use in some cases. A checkbox implies that more
than one data layer can be chosen, however some data layers are mutually
exclusive, others are not. On first pass it struck me that either the
checkboxes should only appear next to those data layers that are
inclusive and disappear when a mutually exclusive one is chosen.

Crafting a user research e-mail... what to say?

Hey all,

I've pushed hard enough to be able to reach out to some users of our web
sites. We can blast out an e-mail to the students to grab user interview
candidates. I need to write the e-mail, but I wanted to first ask if anyone
had anything like this laying around I could use as a reference. Also, any
best practices?

interactions magazine

The March+April 2008 issue of interactions magazine has emerged from
the printer and should be appearing in subscribers' mailboxes soon.

As subscribers and other recipients have seen from the
January+February 2008 issue, the magazine now has a very different
look and feel, and content that reflects a new vision.

Recommendations on UI for filtering content / switching user-roles.

Hi all,

I've recently joined this list so hope I have followed the standard
etiquette for posting messages.

Does anyone have any recommendations of sites using a technique for a
registered user to switch their view of a website from job-specific to
'show all'.

So if a user chooses to view the site as their registered job role of
'Travel Writer', whilst they will be able to access all the content on
the site, role-specific articles will be promoted more heavily within
the site pages.

You decide - Screen Size

Sorry for bringing up a pesky off-topic issue again, but...

These screen size discussions ignore mobile devices.

Time selection

I have a settings page where in Admin has to set Log In Time, Log Out Time, Timezone settings from Monday to Friday to all the agents. In the "mockup1" I have designed, Admin needs to select the time for all days. This will take a lot of time as he has to click 30 times to complete.
