double email process

I have to enter my e-mail address very often, I guess we all do. I always type it right. And I don't even copy-paste(imagine the excise:) ) Those twin entry fields have never helped me. Maybe they could help, once in one hundred times, but I guess we're back to the 'Are you sure you want to save this file' discussion :)

..There must be other ways to implement this. I find the auto-complete feature very helpful. If I'm not mistaking, the browser 'remembers' sets of entries for textboxes with the same name, nomather the website. So familiar names for those textboxes could help.

How do people use applications differently from expected?

I seem to remember that in an earlier post Robert mentioned that users will
not always utililse an application as expected, for example, using a wiki as
a project management tool.

When our company got a Confluence wiki I initially considered creating a
space for a group of users but decided against it because there was no
navigation menu. I later discovered there was a left navigation menu plug-in
and saw other sites using the left nav with a Search above it.

ixd deliverables ...

I am curious to know the types of deliverables that other designers here
deliver as part of their process, etc, how they are used, and how helpful
they are to the people who get them. I currently deliver hard composites (a
png of a design), working prototypes (working html, css, javascript), what I
have been calling "user stories" (a walk through of the interaction that the
user goes through to complete a task), and UI documentation that describes
how things should work at the developers point of view so that they can have
a clear understanding of how to build things.

Books or articles that cover analysis of user/design research data well.

I put the call out yesterday via Twitter and thought I'd try to tap into the
IxDA community for more assistance... I'm looking for examples of texts -
books or articles (printed, journals, blogs, online magazines) - I'd happily
accept presentations - that provide good coverage of analysis of research
