RSS not updating
The RSS feed for the blue hasn't updated since the post at 4:41 this morning (ET), and the Ask MetaFilter RSS feed hasn't updated since 3:27 this morning. Am I the only one seeing this?

Odd layout issue?
When browsing on my mobile device, I noticed a rendering issue and wondered if others have seen the same?

Android, Firefox, and Metafilter commenting
More and more I find myself visiting Metafilter on my Android tablet. I am using Firefox 25.0.1 on a Nexus 7 with Android 4.3. Recently, commenting has become almost impossible - namely, any kind of HTML tags get very screwed up. Typically, I'll copy a comment I want to reply to, surround that with em tags and then reply. Lately, in the process of posting, Android or Firefox or Metafilter decides to empty the closing em tag (leaving two carats) and append a set of empty carats and a closing em tag to my whole post. Trying to clean it up leads to all kinds of problems - the cursor jumps around and deletes things on its own. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it Android, Firefox, Metafilter, or some combination of all three? Any help would be appreciated.

Time for the Biannual Timezone Offset Shuffle
Daylight saving time is coming to end in Europe tonight. It is not coming to end in the US until next week. This means that if you live in a country that is doing the switch tonight, and you want posts and comments to show up in the correct local time, you'll need to adjust your site preferences.

Secure browsing option
I have "use secure browsing" enabled (I can see the checkmark), but metafilter is not using SSL on all of my computers. For example, it's enabled on my iPhone but not on Safari. However, the checkmark is there in both places. [more inside]

Ads appearing in lower right hand corner of posts?
Starting this morning, I have seen sporadic ads in the lower right-hand corner of the screen while reading posts on MeFi and Ask, even while logged in. They display first as a grey and orange bar, like so; when I hover over the bar, it expands into a set of ads (for "coupons" nominally linked to keywords in the post). Have I been hit with spyware, or is this happening to others? (I am running Chrome on Windows 7; this is definitely not a browser extension I have installed.)

Something change on the Matrix, mobile wonky on Ask
Shortly after the update on the heart attack thread on Ask (dx severe heartburn), the words on Ask only got hugely tiny. Talk & FP are fine. Chrome browser, iOs6.x, recent ish phone.

A navigation oddity
Small oddity on in-thread navigation: when I click on the timestamp of a comment, it goes to the top of the screen but with some buffer above it. When I use "." and "," to navigate through the page (or "j" and "k"), there is no buffer. More oddly, clicking the timestamp then using "." actually takes me to the same post, just removing the buffer. Am I the only one having this issue navigating? [more inside]

GraphFi pooped out :(
It looks like some change that happened in the last few days knocked out some of GraphFi's functionality. [more inside]
