I have a handy built-in reminder due to my own date of emergence - happiest birthday wishes to our over worked, ever patient, and exceptionally talented overlord Cortex! Thanks for all that you do.
Josh talks about the stuff he uses to get things done.
I hope you got the weekend off to play. We know the queue is there for just that reason. To let the mods have downtime, just like folks. And let us all cool off despite the season. Your first birthday as our dear leader. Hope this has made your life sweeter. We'll also see you on the "Tweeter." Dear Cortex, nothing could be neater! Happy birthday, dude!
I can't believe no one has said anything to our "datawranglin' mod" until now, but many happy returns!
"Moderator, chief datawrangler at Metafilter", "cortex is a 32-year-old musician, computer geek, and generally reckless creative-type person in Portland, OR. His username on mefi is “cortex”, for reasons that aren’t particularly interesting."
The sock thief of the MetaFilter Aristocracy has some warm words for the masses on this special day. [more inside]
Can we favorite a deletion reason?
Coooooooooooooortex! Happy birthday, dude! I think dude deserves a shoutout for his mod duties, for MeFi music, for all the data crunching, for the fascinating subsites and just for being an all-around outstanding contributor to the site. So, thanks man and again, happy natal anniversary!
In case you missed it, metafilter was down for maintainance for a bit last night.

Alright, I've had it with all this mod oversight. So fed up right now! [more inside]
So did butterstick and cortex et al ever get around to giving us their Dark Horse Aliens comic book summaries, as promised in this thread and specifically here, here, here, here and here? [more inside]
This was not a good deletion. I think cortex pulls the trigger too quickly sometimes on the deletion of Ask Me posts and more restraint would be appreciated. [more inside]
Lute Cat (not to be confused with Zither Cat) began life as a deletion reason on the blue, was briefly batted about on the grey, was then auctioned off for charity, and is now residing in Projects, ready to be purchased and taken home. Oh won't you love him, Mefi.
Folk music, viral weirdness, and the Ballad of Steven Slater. Josh Millard, known to all and sundry here as cortex, analyses how The Ballad of Steven Slater written by Max Sparber, a.k.a. Astro Zombie, which cortex set to music and performed, went viral. How viral? Wolf Blitzer viral.
Pony request for my birthday: Can cortex's deletion reasons be collected? Stuff like this is one of my favorite features of the site.
Why is MeFi turning into the Josh Millard Fan Club? [more inside]
This post is a callout that should've been done here, although in a much truncated form. [more inside]
Some time ago, I did a post about parodies of "The Last Supper". Little did I know at the time that the Greatest Spoof Ever would feature MetaFilter's Own Jesus H. Shatner (although in retrospect, it seems obvious). Ladies and Gentlemen, a masterpiece by leonardo pjern, "The Last Round" [more inside]
As promised: the First Annual Chicago Cortex Convergence, October 2nd and 3rd. Mark it on your calendars, kids. [more inside]

What were the mods like (on Metafilter) before they were mods? Please point me to notable posts by Jessamyn, Cortex, et al from when they were just some schmo on MeFi like you or me. [more inside]
Cortex turns 30 today. Hiccups: gone. Pants status: unknown. Metafilter contributions: Awesome!
This inaugural episode of the new Metafilter Music Podcast supplement is hosted by cortex and features an interview with and music by Corduroy, as well songs from lovermont, chococat, micayetoca, and The World Famous. It runs just under 36 minutes. [more inside]
So ummm... Yeah, I'm pretty sure the OP of the thread below me was asking in a VERY creative way: Why is there a metafilter policy against telling others via postings what you received in MeMail? Easy on the trigger, cortex. Just because you CAN delete and end threads, doesn't mean you should.
I just wanted to be sure everyone gets the memo. "Web zaphods," is that clear?
Right this very moment, Cortex is sitting at home, sans-pants, watching the flag queue, poised with the ban-hammer, bemoaning his utter lack of head-sized doughnuts. Welcome to the Land of the
Lost Full-Time MetaFilter Admins, Cortex!
Cortex, can you chill out? More inside.
