I code stuff with my bare hands.

I like to make programs and devices smarter, and easier to use. I experiment with new, brilliant interface concepts. I'm a programmer, designer, web developer, and a nice guy.

I believe choices make us who are, and are a major part of how we and others feel.

I'm an address validator.

Typically, a navigation drawer, I think.

comment What is the best format to capture addresses for a universal user-base?
Use a single field and verify the input.

US addresses don't have a second street line. (Usually.) But please oh please don't add another address field (as I commented below) -- let's make the web better by simplifying address input instead of making it more confusing. (Sorry. I work at SmartyStreets. For some reason I'm kind of passionate about this...)

Oh, not more address fields! :o --- definitely don't add fields to the form. Let's consolidate the address field into one while we're looking at making improvements.

comment Are there studies that show how long a user is willing to wait when logging into a website?
Interesting question, though I doubt the delay would be noticeable with today's processors. If the delay was noticeable by a human and the processor was spinning that whole time chewing on a hashing algorithm, I'd be more worried about upgrading the hardware to handle the load than I would be about delaying the user a few more milliseconds. Ironically, that upgrade would speed it up. I have seen some sites (even the Linux desktop login) enforce a time delay, aside from actual computation time, to prevent brute-force.

comment Quizzing users on key points of the EULA?
Interesting idea, but I think DannyVarod's and Brendon's comments combined form a complete answer to your question.

Also, I'll add: ZIP codes frequently change, and a ZIP code may often map to multiple cities or even states, making a city/state auto-fill less than trivial.

comment Order of address, city, country in form
Exactly. And with good auto-complete, you get the whole address including ZIP code after just a few characters (typically). Just remember, too, that it's not uncommon to forget, not know, or mistype a ZIP code (users can have a hard time with numbers).
