And my winners are ......

Inspired by Eyebrows McGee's post Strange Fruit, I decided to offer a $50 prize in the best of December contest.
On reflection after I finally got my broadband back I decided that I could do a bit better than that as I liked several posts very much.
Please would the following mefites memail me with a valid email adress to get a $20 Amazon gift card. You may do what you like with it but it would please me if you purchased a book(s) either electronic or traditional.
dhruva - The true history of the Paisley design
quiet earth - (Canine) Guardians of the Corpse Ways
Pirate-Bartender-Zombie-Monkey - No Gloves, No Rounds, Plenty of Blood
nebulawindphone - Find eyes within, look for the door into the unknown country
and Eyebrows McGee for the inspiration.
Thanks everyone for another great month of posts.

Recent Activity Comment Length Po[...]

Sometimes comments in recent activity get truncated with a "[...]" when they run too long. Could we allow MeFites to customize this aggressiveness? For instance, I've currently got a thread at the top of Recent Activity that contains a number of comments such as this one (9,414 characters over five paragraphs) and this one (11,121 characters over six paragraphs). These walls of text make it difficult to navigate. If I could choose the point at which comments are truncated (say, two paragraphs or 1,000 characters, whichever comes second) I -and maybe others?- would be a happy camper. Is this a cool and reasonable idea?

MeFi advice on buying glasses

Several years ago, I remember there was some discussion on MeFi about some places to buy eyeglasses on the web at extremely low prices - like, $20 for a complete set with frames and lenses and everything. I'm looking for an update on these sources. [more inside]

Are product catalog pages now "best of the web"?

Am I missing something, or is this post -- literally a link to two product catalog pages for bread and to their parent bakery -- now considered good enough to be FPP material?

Can we talk about the dumb show I like?

I am interested in writing about a show on FanFare. Now what? [more inside]
