comment Does it matter if Anna dies?
I found this to be true in my playthrough. As fbueckert said, she's a good decoy in an otherwise challenging fight while she's alive. You can use Rescue (a staff skill) in this and many other such missions to pull Anna back to your main lines, but be aware that this puts the village in more immediate danger.

comment Can I change difficulty level or mode without starting over?
I will say that I'm happy I stuck with Hard/Classic despite it being extremely frustrating for the first 5 or 6 chapters. I tend to focus on unit advancement and nearing the end of the game things have gotten a little too easy, even on Hard. On normal I'd be bored by now.

comment Is there aught to help me dry faster?
The put away / use trick still works (PS3), although it's a bit of a pain. Also, +1 for using "aught" in the question.

Absorbent cloths, which I've found are a little more common, can be turned into clean cloths by combining with a flask of water, but frankly, unless nearby enemies are using lightning or ice attacks, there's little reason not to just continue on and let the drenched effect wear off.

comment positioning with different heights
I have had a very frustrating time with this as well, and use the method you mentioned to reduce the annoyance somewhat, but it's a small help at best. I really would've expected this to be patched by now. As great of a game as XCOM is, Firaxis is losing big points for every day they let big issues like this go unaddressed.

Wait, how can Assaults fire twice per turn?

comment Capturing multiple of the same alien
Totally agree with the main point. Since you can't sell them there's never any point to having more than 6 of any particular equipment. However I used a light plasma rifle right up to the end of the game on one of my Support soldiers. The extra 10 aim was more useful for the double reaction shots than the extra 2 or 3 damage from a regular plasma rifle, and I just generally like having a "sure shot" on the team to mop up enemies with a few HP remaining without having to worry about a wasted turn from an unlucky accuracy roll.
