I recall seeing a comment within the past few months that I am 97% sure was on Metafilter and am trying to hunt down--details are so hazy that I am having trouble searching/Googling. It was about an African-American woman from the late part of the 19th Century or early part of the 20th Century who was an early advocate for civil rights and who is largely overlooked but who has an interesting history. Possibly framed in a "she totally kicked ass" kind of way in said comment. Notably, she managed to get an advanced degree/degrees at a time when that was systemically very challenging. Ring any bells? Know it isn't much to go on. posted by HonoriaGlossop at 1:15 PM -
Just checking to see if anyone on metafilter is also playing Elder Scrolls Online. If you are and you would like to play with other Mefites then drop your user name in here. [more inside] posted by Julnyes at 4:31 PM -
What are the currently functioning killfile scripts and where can they be found? I see threads from 2005 or 2006, but it's unclear if there's anything newer and/or if those scripts still function properly nowadays. posted by shivohum at 5:54 AM -
Congratulations to Metroid Baby and ignignokt on the birth of their son at 1:12 this morning. The father reports: "He is healthy and the mother is healthy. Both are champions! More details later!" posted by Ian A.T. at 7:36 AM -
If you were naive,hubristic optimistic enough to want to set up a metafilter like site, but with a specific focus, how would you go about doing that?
I don't mean Mefi as a whole with the wonderful subsites, just the Metafilter.com part?
If there off the shelf free (or cheap) software that could do the job, whilst also be scalable or is it a question of "Stable, Secure, Cheap pick two" ? [more inside] posted by Faintdreams at 5:13 AM -
Hi, can you identify this post? It was about a songwriter who wrote a book on composing high quality popular songs. The FPP included a rare interview he gave the Guardian and the thread consensus was that the interview was very poorly done. It's for a niece who's making demos. Thanks everybody! posted by CyborgHag at 2:16 PM -
