When I'm not logged in, the most recent post on the Metatalk front page is Miguel Cardoso's accent xenophobia post of January 28th. Reloading doesn't help. I'm using Opera and have my preferences set to clearing cache and deleting all cookies on exit, so I don't think I'm seeing a cached version of the page. Also, I had never encountered this problem before, and the MeFi and AskMe front pages are behaving normally.

When I log in, the problem disappears.

I'm using Opera 5.02 and Windows 98.

The front page for not logged in users is static and gets generated from the actual data once in every five minutes. The whole metafilter being wonky due to Matt's hacking probably means this got skipped a few times, probably something that will sort itsself out once everything settles down.

I forgot to reset the script to auto-build the new static metatalk page. I'll fix this shortly.

(BTW: MeFi and MeTa are really fast right now. Thanks for your efforts on that as well.)
