comment eCommerce: single currency vs multiple currencies?
but... what about bank charges for exchange rates? banks impose different rates than promoted ones, so if I am in USA, and I pay by USD 20.00 USD, by the time it reaches your bank it would be not exactly the amount I initially thought it would be, but minus bank fees

comment Home button vs Logo link?
+1 for catching the ref=home, though now in 2014, twitter, g+, facebook they all adopted the home link for some reason

comment Are there unambiguous words for alert boxes?
@dan1111 well think of one positive effect of having the button say it all, you don't have to take your eyes off the button to know what it does, if in doubt, look back and read the paragraph before it. In most windows dialogs (the old ones anyway) it was particularly frustrating that they usually make a statement, then ask the question, then "yes" "no"! if the question comes first it is much easier, but sometimes that isn't an option. "You are about to lose your day's work, are you sure you want to quit application" "yes!"

comment Are there unambiguous words for alert boxes?
@dan1111 not quite sure I follow, are you saying that the wording is not enough or is it too much wording? If you put in the right title, like: Quit application? then "Yes" alone is enough, but if you want to give the user like two lines of explanation, then "Yes, quit application" summarizes the situation, Yes alone is frustrating, yes what? I think I've seen "Yes, do it" to work on most websites and applications, but then again, I'm an extreme driven to distraction person, not a good test subject :)

comment Is there a point to paginating articles online?
you know, technically it is very possible to achieve all goals, here is how: display one page (bandwidth), when scrolled down and hits bottom, fetch via ajax the second page and append, in the same hit, call a google analytics track function, and maybe to spice it up, change the ads displayed on sides, and fix those sides so they linger as user scrolls down... see, a pie big enough for all

comment How do I limit the number of options a user may choose in a list?
dont u think its a bit too many clicks to perform a single "choose" action? the checkbox is inherently an "add-remove" control, having to click on another add button probably too much, if clicking on a checkbox visually transfers the item to the second box, it may be faster, but it may confuse the user if it wasnt smooth and slow enough for him to see it

I like the answer that displays a message tool tip next to it, but i went with this one since i only had two choices to allow user to make

i think u got me right mostly, and i think i can enhance this method by making the secret code belong to lawyers, when the deal is struck, lawyers can send an email (thru the system) with the link that directs clients to a page that populates lawyer information, and then client punches a "confirm" button, this way, lawyer initiates dialog, and client doesnt have to find lawyer again :)
