My husband and I live in New England and we want to move to a warmer location. We are in the brainstorming stage. We'd love to hear of places that tick our boxes. [more inside]
I love my Galaxy S3, it serves me well. Except I have never been able to find a decent browser for text entry. While this curbing of impulse is probably wise, it makes MeFi well-nigh uninteractable. Which is probably a good brake sometimes, but frustrating at others. Are there any mobile solutions (android galaxy S3)that make MeFi a little more user-friendly? I realize some amount of this is googleable, but I figure some of you smart guys and gals have already duped this out. Thank you.
chococat calls his rendition of Fame "dirge-like"; I call it creepy-sexy-creepy. e.g. It's rather a turn on, even though it sounds just subtly too menacing or scary to be a turn-on, but that very quality is why it's a turn-on. Any other recommendations for similar songs? (The only other one I know that fits is Poe's Control.)
What's the most efficient/easiest way to hack a Wordpress install/theme into a MeFi clone? [more inside]
Remember when the MetaFilter forum was down a couple weeks ago due to server problems? I'm glad it's back up and working again, but from my desktop at work, I still get the "splash" screen that MetaFilter is having a massage (or whatever it said - from memory) and is down. Now what do I do?
Programming neophyte looking for a language to start with. Or, what language should I learn to complete these tasks?
What programming language should a neophyte start with to organize his life? Yes, another one of those questions. But I have two specific tasks that I'd like to accomplish and this makes choosing a language really hard for me. Especially since i'm a complete n00bler. [more inside]
Quick, MeFi I need a dog park to go to in Yokohama, Japan, anyone, anyone???
Question for the SQL ninjas in the house. Say you're grabbing data from a bunch of similar tables in a big union. Now say you want the last ten items added anywhere to the database, from any one of those tables. What's the most efficient way to do that? [more inside]
Actuary Filter: How many MeFites are dead? [MI] [more inside]
[FrontPagePostFilter]. What link has been the victim of the most front page posts on MeFi? I wonder, only because Strandbeest hit its 4th one today and I suspect that the record's got to be higher than that.
A while ago, on my old site, I posted this parody of MeFi. (It was subsequently, um, noticed. Yeah, sorry about that.) I thought a fitting tribute would be to post it to my user page. As is plainly obvious, tis fux0red for I am not l33t. Or else, there's some sort of cotton-pickin' interference, as the anchor tags seem to be all kerfluuey. Help, pwease?
I didn't know about lofi until graventy mentioned it in Metatalk. Are there any other tricks, sub-sites, whatever you want to call them to Metafilter?
I'm bored with the World Wide Web. Can anyone help? [more inside] [more inside]
