comment What is the psychology behind laying out slabs at different angles for cyclists and pedestrians?
I agree with the bike-slabs looking a tad dangerous as they could force the side-to-side position of a wheel and prevent the rider to make balancing steers.

comment How could you prevent users from leaving their original copy in the photocopier?
Or just set the machine to print an enforced title page with the sign on it. Wasteful, sure - but simple to do on existing machines in this case.

comment Showing excess usage in a progress bar
I'd think anything pleasantly designed should work just as fine if the colors are stripped away, like a red light which relies on position as well... with this there's no visual difference between 99% and 999% if you can't tell it's red ^^

comment Who needs an external on/off Wi-Fi button?
Or if say travelling by train or bus where there's no local wifi you'd want to use or rely on, keeping the radio securely offline will prevent your computer to be hijacked by common wifi attacks...

comment Who needs an external on/off Wi-Fi button?
+1 This is the main reason as far as I and everyone I know is concerned. It must be easy to reliably keep wifi off, considering how easy it is to attack wifi-clients these days. Most people I know rarely if ever turn on wifi radios but rely purely on mobile carrier add-on radios which require at least 10 times the investment in hardware to do man-in-the-middle attacks on, for now :)

comment When shortening time expressions in progress dialogs, should they be rounded up or down?
+1 I like this question, it got me thinking on those X minutes until bus/train leaves/arrives/passes the platform signs, which way they work and their implications for stressed-out commuters ;)

comment Is copyright in the site's footer usable at all?
This varies from nation to nation, the legal need that is...

comment Microsoft Visual Studio 11 - why would they use uppercase in UI?
Finally they realized the solution explorer is also "content" and re-colorized the icons! Win! That was the most idiotic thing about the beta: all icons was a grey blob, no way of quickly telling the difference between a pdf document and a c# file.

comment Blocking IE6: Deny outright or warn of issues?
+1 completely agree, having a site's basic functionality fail in IE6 is just sloppy and disrespectful imo. It only needs to be usable, not look cool. Obviously, if the site is a cool game campaign using technology not possible in IE6 - that's a different story.

Terminal Servers perhaps, or end-users with a need for the server features... plenty of reasons.

comment Blocking IE6: Deny outright or warn of issues?
I'm sure there's a script library called CheckForCoolBrowser.js that excludes anything with IE in it though, I never did understand why anyone would want to exclude a user based on the browser - it feels like forcing religion on people or something. Graceful fallbacks for the win.

comment Blocking IE6: Deny outright or warn of issues?
Any normal IT department can roll out virtualized/sandboxed/siloed IE6 containers for their IE6-only apps in a week or less... I don't buy that explanation at all, unless it's due to incompetence ^^

comment Dealing with Area Codes in Phone Number fields
Just as an example, we're dropping area codes in Sweden as far as I know (an expensive project).

comment How to adapt your website for TV browsers?
This is a really interesting question imo - responsive design but upwards (most TV sets are likely 1920px wide and running the browser in (close to) fullscreen)... rearranging the fluid layout to cater for that width is interesting as I hate when fluid designs simply makes text a thousand pixels wide ^^
