comment Students publishing their websites to Amazon S3
ok, I think I've somewhat figured out this cockamamie policy mechanism. You need the ListBucket to have the resource with your bucket name and a condition with an s3:prefix of the student's directory. However, the Put/Delete/Etc actions need to have the resource with your bucket name/folder name/*. Try as I might, I can't find a way around the ListAllMyBuckets permission. Seems that users need to be able to list all the buckets.

no, that folder name after bucket name doesn't work at all. I can add a condition of StringLike and then folder-name/*. But that only works partially. I can see all the folders/files but can't modify them despite having s3:* specified for that action.

comment Students publishing their websites to Amazon S3
I've just wasted well over an hour experimenting with different policies. They don't make this intuitive at all. I want a policy where students can only access, read and write to a subfolder. At this point I'd settle for them being able to see other folders but not go in them. I've tried just about every possible policy and condition that makes any kind of sense. The above works but gives students way too many capabilities.

subfolders is perfect, that's what I would prefer, but am I able to restrict permissions for a student to only their folder?

This seems perfect. Only that I have to create a new bucket for each student... I guess not a big deal.

Thank you for this, but I'm looking for students to be able to upload their files to Amazon's S3 service.

comment Tracking AdWord ads with different text in Google Analytics
Right, but I wouldn't easily be able to use the google analytics UI to monitor and review the traffic and events based on that dimension. I don't know much about the Export API, I guess I can just run my queries through the API to monitor and review traffic and events? Doesn't sound pleasant. Seems easier to just pass in a tracking parameter from adwords.

The ad id would be perfectly acceptable. So I can read the ga:adwordsCreativeId from this API, then how do I tell analytics to associate this visitor with that ad so I can see the metrics in google analytics?

Wow, that was very surprising to see Matt Cutts say Google treats dashes as separators and underscores as joins.

@Robert, yes I understand an ID allows me to put anything I want. The question of whether to add names involved in the content still remains though. Also, adding an ID is much worse from a length, aesthetic and SEO perspective than adding a duplicate count # isn't it?
