Google: slow for everyone, or just me?

I've experienced extreme slowness with Google products, especially Gmail, for the past few weeks. This is true on several difference computers, tablets, etc., on several different internet connections and networks, using various browsers, apps, etc. [more inside]

What's wrong with my machine?

I've got a 4 year old Windows desktop that I use for very few things: Metafilter (using either Chrome or Firefox), email (Thunderbird), Word, and NVivo (a qualitative analysis software). I also play Steam games on the machine occasionally. I went on vacation, and when I came back, the computer was - for lack of a better term - completely messed up. [more inside]

Slow cooked pork cooking conundrum

I've got a 9lb / 4kg pork leg which was set to cook at 225F /110C for around 14 hours (based on guidelines of 1.5 - 2 hours per pound). I discovered the temperature was wrong and now I'm not sure the best way to recover the situation. [more inside]

Why are airline computer reservation systems so slow?

The computer reservation system that airline personnel at airports use to rebook flights for customers, change seats, and so on seem markedly slower than when the customer uses the internet to pick a seat, or book or change a flight. Why is that? [more inside]

Best one-pot soup, stew, or casserole recipes for crockpots?

Looking for soup, stew, or casserole recipes where I can spend ten minutes dumping stuff in the crockpot in the morning and have a full meal ready when I get home. Something like this is ideal; the only prep is chopping an onion before setting it and forgetting it until dinnertime. No dietary preferences or restrictions, but some vegetables would probably be good. I'm seeing a lot of recipes online, but am having a hard time weeding out which ones are worthwhile, and would appreciate any favorites you care to share.

Zombie Political Science

Once upon a time on the Blue, I remember reading an article that went into great analytical detail about the social significance of slow versus fast zombies, even citing philosophers like Hume to make its point. However, I can't find the article for the life of me! Help me, MeFites!

What is for Dinner?

I have read conflicting reviews about cooking boneless skinless chicken breast in a slow cooker. I will be making apricot chicken in the crock pot tomorrow. The recipe calls for a chicken cut into serving size pieces. I am using boneless skinless chicken breast instead. How long do you usually cook it on low? The recipe says 3-8 hours. Pretty wide berth there. Any tips?

How can I troubleshoot my Mac's ADSL connection?

How can I troubleshoot my Mac's ADSL connection? A few weeks ago my download speed suddenly dropped to about 4kilobits/sec after I tried to set up a firewall. I then turned off the firewall, but the speed hasn't returned. I'm running Mac OSX 10.3.4 on an eMac with 1GHz processor and 1GB RAM (confirmed intact by profiler) on a simple ADSL router (YahooBB, the leader in Japan) with an ethernet hub. Interestingly, upload is fine at 500 kbps, and my older slot-loading iMac 350MHz is zooming along fine on the same connection at 1150kbps download speed. TCP/IP settings are simple, DHCP auto-assigns the IP.
