I'm a UX Designer focusing on improving big, complicated web applications. I do a lot of wireframing, user research, and usability testing.

I also run a blog on usability in gaming, That Game's UX. Check it out!

comment DropDownLists becoming TextBoxes - Should the user be able to go back?
+1 for not having a dropdown. Users aren't going to read the dropdown options to help make their decision, and there's no concern for mis-spelling here, so a dropdown is only making the process harder.

comment Desktop applications with no toolbars
+1 on representing new users and discovery. Expert users are always new users at first.

comment Which one to use in printing: CW or CCW rotated vertical text?
Doesn't two or more lines of CCW text equally violate normal reading order? Two lines of CW you're reading top-to-bottom but right-to-left. With CCW, it's left-to-right but also bottom-to-top.

comment Security issues if not forcing a user to sign up
No, I said I don't disagree with the security concerns. I edited my answer to remove the pesky and unnecessary double negative.
