- Find alternatives to "tray_login" method since it is going to be patched soon. This is now redundant since Dropbox client now uses 2FA properly.
- "While your submission was interesting, there has been other research on similar topics. There is nothing wrong with talking about the same topic more than once, especially one that has a large impact but if you are expanding on a topic, make sure to highlight how you are taking the research to a new level. Be clear with the review board about how what you are doing is extending the research." <= (apply this feedback to the paper and presentation).
