comment Plotting NAD83 zone 8 points atop OSM or Fusion Tables
The UTM Coordinate system has UTM zone identifiers. Your point lies on UTM zone 8W. This nomenclature is not used in GIS. UTM coordinate system has two flase origins for the North coordinate. If something is above the equator the false origin is 0 meters. For something south the equator false origin is 10,000,000 meters. UTM CRS in GIS applications usually only care about if something is north or south of the equator. Also bear in mind that you are using a datum that is intended to be used in North Aamerica, so you will have just a NAD83 UTM zone 8N and not a 8S based on the same datum.

comment How to snap and move circles by the center?
If your points have to be in the center of the buffers you can calculate the centroid of the buffers (vector, geometry tools, polygon centroids). That will give you a shape layer with the center of each buffer. Later you can move the desired points to the center of the buffer as described before.

comment Is there a union function for multiple layers comparable to ArcGIS in open source GIS like QGIS?
The merge shapes in to one function works for more than 2 shapes. I have been able to merge more than 20 at once.

comment How to snap and move circles by the center?
You can use the move feature of the digitizing toolbar. Before doing that you can set a snapping threshold at settings/snapping options and there select the point/polygon layer you want to sanp to and set a treshold of 10-15 pixels. After that you have to select the layer where you want to move features, put this layer in edit mode, select the feature you want to move and chose the move feature icon and move your feature where you want to be.

comment How set correct options for displaying a grid in QGIS composer?
It even does change the hemisphere identifier (O or W) depending the language you are using. Having this option in composer is a great tool for final maps.

comment Lat Long to Useable values in QGIS
In order to convert deg/min second to decimal degrees I do it with the following formula in a spreadsheet deg+(min/60)+(sec/3600). for western longitudes and southern latitudes I do as follows -1*(deg+(min/60)+(sec/3600)). Usually I isolate the results by copy and paste values add a column with a name/identifier and save as a csv comma delimited file. Then you can use the "add delimited text layer" plug in to load the points in qgis. Hope it helps

comment Cropping or removing borders (not NoData) from multiple scanned and georeferenced maps (ArcMap or QGIS)
First try to see what is the value of the black edge with the identifying tool. Then you can try to covert your file to another/same format and definig the null value and keeping the files in the same crs (raster/conversion/translate(convert format))

I also think that gene´s comments qualify as an answer. Following the link it clarifies the issues.

comment How to clip a lines vector layer to a polygon layer in QGIS?
why not trying to clip the raster file? take in to account that both layer must be in the same crs also.

comment Scale and Z factor have no effect on hillshade analysis in QGIS
When you are using a DEM with latlon coordinates in decimal degrees and vertical units in meters you have to set the scale (ratio of vertical units to horizontal units) to 111120. I tried with a couple of DEMs from Aster I have not a problem. This setting aplies not only to hillshading but also for slope calculations. Hope it helps

comment Missing Georeferencer
Thanks, I was used to see it without activating it in manage and install plugins. Now there is a little glitch, since after I invoke the georeferencer, the georeferencer appears, do not respond for a little moment and I have an error stating "bad allocation". After that i can play with the georeferencer.

comment Step by step LCP Analysis QGIS 2.0
I do not know what version of Qgis you are running. I use 2.01 64 under win 7. R. drain gives me a big blag raster. The path is there but I can not see it. The way I handle the problem was to conver th r.drain raster to vecto with r.to.vect.line. Then the path is visible.

I run r.cost with the native resolution of your dem and I have no problem, bear in mind that I am using qgis 2.01 64 in win7 with an I7 and 16gb of ram, so it was fast (les than a minute)

comment Step by step LCP Analysis QGIS 2.0
Hello,sorry for the delay, I was able to run rwalk,and rdrain with the model you mentioned. The only thing I changed was the raster resolution. As I understand when you defined your region , the raster resolution is set to 1 (in this case 1 meter). So look for an icon that tells "grass region settings" and change the resolution to something esle more than one. Your dem is 5, so try with 5 or 10. Hope it helps
