Look, I'm really embarrassed that I am posting this to meta, where it doesn't belong, and I have tried the direct to the mod approach, but it hasn't worked. So I have a bit of a personal emergency, I'm coping, but I need some galant person to post this to Ask for me? Any takers? I'm really not trying to break the rules, I rarely post to Ask, but I need some help, and I carelessly have asked a question in the last week. . Question below. [more inside]

I'd rather not clutter up nickyskye's Mango
post with this question, but I've noticed that the FSI Language Course site Vacapinta mentioned
in the thread (here, previously
) is inaccessible. Does anyone know if the site is down for good? [more inside]

I'm using Opera (9.23, Windows NT 5.1; U; sv)
and all I see at the Metafilter frontpage is nothing at all
(image). Mefi works fine in IE. Whatever has caused this, it must have happened during the past 12 hours.

I just posted in a thread on the blue and the more inside wasn't visible in preview. I'm on Safari. Anyone else seeing this?

Uploading songs to mufi is maybe broken? Or maybe it is just me?

Anyone else see a weird display bug with this
comment? In both IE and Firefox, the "posted by" line (and only the posted by line) for that comment (and only that comment) is not indented at all. I'm not familiar with the Metafilter code, but when I view source it looks like all the rest of the comments.

Am I the only one who sees "Connection Timeout" in the place where the number of members should be listed on the front page of MeFi?

Preview and final post modes have diverged. I keep seeing complaints, after munged or garbled messages, about how 'it looked fine in preview!' [bit more inside]

looks fine in the thread but is messing up "My Comments". Everything after it is in tiny-font.

User specific text formating in the My Favorites Tab is borked in ask.me and metatalk and perhaps elsewhere.

"Request is malformed: can't add as a favorite." That's what I get when I try to add a favorite.

Simple html escape characters appear to work in the live preview but don't come through correctly. Is this a bug or intentional?

Help! I see this message instead of the Metafilter homepage?
If you can see this, it means that the installation of the Apache web server software on this system was successful. You may now add content to this directory and replace this page.

Is it just my display, or is everyone seeing the latest FPP in the blue as being posted July 6?
Doesn't make sense unless MetaFilter is coming from the South Pacific.

Whenever I visit http://www.metafilter.com/index.cfm?sortby=mycommentedthreads the page load stalls at about 36kb for a good ten to twenty seconds. Every
time. What's up with that?

Pony: All posts by user suchandsuch tagged soandso? As it is, on a user's posting page, there's a list of frequently-used tags, but if you follow the links, you get all
posts so tagged, when what you might expect (and even, in some cases, want) is just that user's posts so tagged.

I'm sorry if this has been covered or is painfully obvious, but in searching MeTa and generally scouring my profile page, I can't find where to click to change my information. The one MeTa thread I did find on the subject (here
) says there's a "customize" link. It seems this has been replaced with "Preferences," since the url ends in "customize.cfm," but when I click there, I get nothing but the set of Features
, and Sites

Linefeeds/Carriage returns in My Comments missing? Same in both Firefox 188.8.131.52 and IE 6. I'm not talking about breaks between comments, but within comments.
