I'm not sure if I had intonation problems with my guitar.
But it starts off with good intonation with new strings, but would goes off a quarter semitone beyond 12 fret after 4-5 days of playing, but the harmonics are still in tune, just the fretted note sounding a quarter semitone lower.
Is this normal?

Does anyone know how Ted set his guitar for intonation?

This is not normal. What kind of guitar do you play? I have owned some vintage instruments (including Gibson and Gretsch) where the fret slots were not cut correctly.

Also, do your hands sweat when you play?

I used to have this problem, though not as extreme. My hands sweat a lot, so I'd 'kill' a pair of strings after a week of heavy playing. I had less of a problem if I moved up a gauge, and moving to a 'long lasting' brand of strings helped me no end. If you haven't already, maybe give some coated Elixirs or DR strings a shot? I'd also echo Dan's question as to what guitar you play?
