comment Ask Jon Skeet - A Search Engine
Why're you referring to Jon Skeet as 'it'? Are you alleging he's not human? :)

comment API Documentation and Help
Can we have the current version of API mentioned somewhere? I suppose it's 1.0 now, but there's no way to be certain.

comment Global Inbox uses the API?
I see, thank you. Do you have any changes planned regarding this (either for comments only, or for the whole inbox thing) or should I develop multiple queries solution for now?

comment Global Inbox uses the API?
Why do we need user-authentication for that? Site-wise comments for Jon Skeet are already accessibly through API. And returning answers to his questions isn't much of security breach either (although, I'm more interested in comments). It seems, the difference would only be in reducing load of requests to SE.

comment Newt - question, answer and comment and rep change notifications for Mac OS X
@systempuntoout I'll work on that :) The problem is, I inadvertently used some 10.6 features, like Blocks, so porting it back now isn't as easy as changing build target. But I'll post an update in a few days.

comment API 'search' method with 'min' parameter
Actually, they're often off by 5 minutes and more, depending on the number of search tags. Many are missed completely if you scan with 5-minute window, others come clustered together. It seems, using 'search' method for this is simply impractical: it's much better to go for 'questions' and filter result by tags on client side.
