Need Help with Data Collection

Hi Folks.

I'll be conducting a study to analyze the impact of
ego, caffeine, work load, and Daylight Savings Time on
the social dynamics of email discussion groups, as I'd
like to better understand which of these factors most
directly fuel indulgent sniping.

If you'd like to help me with this project or you too
think we need much more petty bickering, please
contact me immediately.

Thanks in advance!

Do you Yahoo!?

double email process

I have to enter my e-mail address very often, I guess we all do. I always type it right. And I don't even copy-paste(imagine the excise:) ) Those twin entry fields have never helped me. Maybe they could help, once in one hundred times, but I guess we're back to the 'Are you sure you want to save this file' discussion :)

..There must be other ways to implement this. I find the auto-complete feature very helpful. If I'm not mistaking, the browser 'remembers' sets of entries for textboxes with the same name, nomather the website. So familiar names for those textboxes could help.

I'm wondering if anyone here has worked on Eclipse RCP applications

looking for:

- Examples of good IxD in applications built on this platform
- Design patterns and anti-patterns
- Prototyping approaches: paper/software/going straight to code/...

Thanks in advance!

Any guidelines/design patterns etc.. on when a downloadable format ( such as pdf/word/ppt) is appropriate compared to creating a webpage?

Hi everyone,

I would appreciate if anyone could point to me to any guidelines /
design patterns or some source on when a downloadable format ( such as
pdf / word /ppt) is a better option compared to creating a webpage.

For example, a website that talks about policies which are large
documents , it would be best if people are able to download the policy
and review it.

Or if its about a particular process, it would be best if they are
able to download the process and use the printed document to reference
while doing the process.

Any help you could provide will be much appreciated.

Thank You

ADMIN: Subject lines (was Re: (no subject))

Hi Gang,

Can I ask that people please be sure to add a subject line to their
message? This is obviously a helpful measure for everyone.

And yes, if you are replying to someone who made a mistake it is better
to add a relevant subject line than to leave the thread without one.

Thank you!
