comment Can someone who is colour blind pursue a career in UX?
I never said that colours don't matter. I said that most UX work is not related to colours (ref. UI vs UX). Further: "good design" should by definition be usable for colour blind people too, so at the end of the day it shouldn't matter. If it matters - you have done it wrong.

comment Selecting multiple folders
@Nicolas: I have no idea what you just tried to point out. Why wouldn't the music be backed up? What do you mean by "it only backs up the folders the users have selected"?

comment Selecting multiple folders
@Danny Good point! A preview or hint of the content would be very smart. My answer isn't intended as an ultimate solution, it's just another alternative that wasn't mentioned already.

comment Selecting multiple folders
@Danny: The rationale behidn the suggestion is to provide the user with some good defaults and to to use some familiar terms. If the users is not familiar with the folder structure on his computer, then he would most likely collect his documents in the "virtual folders" that Windows exposes. Thus the most important locations the backup software should back up. Oh, and don't take my screen-shot literally! Those four folders are just a random pick. Other relevant folders should be added as well. Like you suggest: the desktop.

comment Selecting multiple folders
@Danny: From the end user's perspective, a location is a location. There's no need to add alien terms like "physical folders", "virtual junction points" and "libraries" ;-)

comment Argument for/against splitting login process into checking username, then ask password?
If an user-name check is wanted, why not add an async check in the "de facto" username+password login screen? Try to sign up with username "qwerty" on signup.wordpress.com/signup (as suggested by Francis Pelland)

comment Allowing every password of 6+ characters. Good practice?
Thank you for the edit, @Arjan. I actually didn't know to include the Alt-text, but you're absolutely right. The xkcd jokes aren't the same without the alt-text ;-)

comment Should there always be a header and footer on a website?
Oh, I really hate footers on web pages with continuous scrolling. Why do they do that?! Eg. Facebook.
