Cold Fusion error on MeFi and AskMe.

Ask and main Mefi both reporting " Invalid CFML construct found on line 55 at column 35." on every page I try which is interfering with my late night mefi fix!

Music Errors

When MeFi Music launched, I couldn't upload songs because I'd get this error message: "The MIME type of the uploaded file "application/oct-stream" was not accepted by the server." Others reported the same problem, and something was done which made my uploads work. However, now I'm getting this message again.

Is there a problem with the AskMe RSS Feed?

Is it just me, or is the AskMe RSS Feed reported to be broken on BlogLines more often than not?

"The feed URL returns a page that does not look like an RSS feed. This can be caused by the feed URL being incorrect, or it can be caused by a configuration issue with the server hosting the feed. If this error continues, you should check the feed URL and, if it is wrong, subscribe to the correct URL."

My Comments page is missing all of the carriage returns.

Linefeeds/Carriage returns in My Comments missing? Same in both Firefox 1.5.0.1 and IE 6. I'm not talking about breaks between comments, but within comments.

AskMe isn't displaying 'My Posts' correctly.

On AxeMe, if I click "My Posts" (should be "My Questions"), and choose a 1 month time frame, it shows me one 6-month-old quesiton I asked, but not the 7 more recent quesitons (including one I just asked today.) In any other view, no quesitons are displayed at all.

This post breaks the RSS code.

The MeFi RSS code escapes the ampersand in this post. It shouldn't.

My profile seems to think my zipcode doesn't exist.

For some reason in my profile, where it is supposed to say "xx MetaFilter users near this user:" I get "no zip found in the db". I found that strange, as I live in a suburb of DC, but shrugged it off as everyone else living in the cooler parts of town. However, when I got bored and looked into it, I'm 26.87 miles from darksquirrel. Yet darksquirrel is 29.78 miles from jenny18 and they show up in each other's zipcode list. Is this a bug, or have I uncovered the fact that my neighborhood has been blackballed by MeFi?

A malformed anchor tag breaks the preview page.

Posting with a malformed anchor tag makes a mess of the preview page, and comment text is gone when you hit Back to fix it. [more details inside]

The timezone slips occasionally.

PST slippage in the blue... Occasionally my time reference on MeFi gets whacked back to PST, though my preferences are EST. When I see the problem, I edit my profile (changing nothing), submit and ta-da, EST. Don't need no pony, just bringing it up. Happens ~ once a month.

I messed up some html with a single quote.

I inserted a single quote in a post on accident and the MeFi code that normally would be the rest of the page (i.e. all the buttons and such) showed up in my preview textbox.

Where did my comment go?

Disappearing comment in this thread: I posted a perfectly normal comment after 40 Watt's first comment, and I know that I did indeed remember to hit "post" because, well, I actually saw the comment posted on the screen. But just now, going back to the thread, my comment is gone. Are gremlins afoot? Because certainly my "hey, thanks for the reminder, I'm going to get this for my nephew" couldn't be considered worthy of deletion...?

Adding tags to my old thread caused a mess.

I made my old thread unhappy when adding tags. Not sure how that happened.

Am I the only one getting this error?

Does anyone else get a "No Harddisk in Drive" error in Mozilla when you try to follow the main link in this thread? I don't get that error on the other link in the post, or any of the other links on the blue.

Bug in the timestamps in MeFi tabs.

When I view the front page in a mode other than "date" (ie "most comments", etc), the times in GMT are out by 8 hours.

Trouble loading the front page, and being redirected.

I tried to load up metafilter earlier and it was taking a while. I noticed at the bottom of my explorer window it said something like "Opening page http://www.b4ta.com/metafilter" Then the page failed to load entirely. I'm confused.

Problem opening MeTa links in a new window in IE6.

IE6, running on Win98SE. I have "open links in a new window" selected in my profile customization, but they open in the same window anyway.

Testing testing, is this thing on (Dec. 2001)?

Broken html messing up the place.

It appears the code can be broken.

Bug in the search results.

Is it just me, or are the "Go to the detail view for this result" links on search results not scrolling to the anchor points?

MeTa Errors

The Error Messages are getting more and more frequent in Metatalk. Yes, this is a double post, but sufficiently urgent. The most recent one was: http://metatalk.metafilter.com/comments.mefi/8590#99606

using IE5.0 for Mac.

And yet another error message when I tried to post this on--oh cruel irony!

Comment text disappearing after preview.

Editing weirdness. Is it just my lack of standards compliant browser (all I ask for is a browser that is compliant, supports imap mail and runs on linux) or what? Tried to post a comment and previewed. Last night there was nothing to edit "below" and back erased everything. Today at one point I could edit below, then I couldn't although back left text in place. Neither seems to be true here (talk not mefi).

Error with the MeFi scholarship link in Opera.

Opera5 shows the "MetaFilter college scholarship" as an off yellow link but it's not clickable. After a quick glance at the HTML it seems Opera doesn't like the negative value, "margin-top:-20px". It looks like there's an unclosed DIV tag around that area too, well, maybe.

Problem with passwords while posting a comment.

Password problems: When I hopped over to MeFi today, I found I wasn't automatically logged in any more. I don't know if that's a MeFi problem itself, as I've had all sorts of weirdness with IE lately on my end. I logged in, no problem. But then when I tried to post a response in a MetaTalk thread, my password wasn't automatically filled in like it usually is. I didn't even notice until I hit "post," at which time I got a yummy ColdFusion error.

Stuck logged in on MetaTalk.

D'oh - I just noticed it's not easy (actually, it's not possible) to log out of metatalk. Sorry about that, I'll dig in and see what the problem is this weekend.
