comment How to check if a given question is changed
Thanks, here is my conclusion: too many steps to follow for something that should be straightforward instead. I give up for now, I really don't want wasting my time to build this kind of clunky check. Hope to see a good caching strategy provided by the API in the future.

comment last_activity_date meaning on /questions route
@Kevin yes, the last 100 q/a's printed are enough. But how could I achieve that if vectorized parameter has an upper limit? (more than one query just to check if comments are changed is out of discussion, in that case I would give up the caching idea)

@Kevin well, vectorized parameters are limited, isn't it? Your solution won't work for questions with hundreds of answers :(

comment Google App Engine [app]s - We are all on the same quota!
@Steffen I disagree that IP+AppId is an appropriate solution also with this statement. API should be coded without custom permission (in this case the google range of IPs.); handling specific cases with custom IF is a terrible idea. The custom workaround, although temporary, is far more generic and usable (also outside GAE).

@Kevin uhm, as suspected it does not consider the comments. Do you know where to look at this information? I would like to be sure that people using StackPrinter print also the new comments.

comment Separate Request Quotas for Authorized [app]s
+1 One thing related to this faq: using Token authentication does not prevent your [app] to be throttled by the request throttling policy; ie, your authenticated [app] could be throttled while fetching an url if other app[s] on your same IP have already consumed the 30 requests per 5 seconds plafond.

comment StackAuth returning 404?
I checked out my code and I noticed that I'm using stackauth.com/sites without 1.0 (Not affected by the DNS change).. What's the difference?

comment Google App Engine [app]s - We are all on the same quota!
totally forgot that brilliant precog question (that I had upvoted months ago). From what I see, just increasing the key limit does not solve the problem. In that scenario, a key hog app could continue to eat from other dishes without any problem leaving the other poor apps starving to death.
