Question about sewing ergonomics?

I thought I saw an AskMe about how to set up a sewing table to minimize back pain, but I can't find it now. Can anyone point me towards it? I've seen this AskMe about lino cutting, but that's not the same.

Another COVID communication post

Recently, I've seen several AskMe posts where posters have felt the need to engage in harsh critique of self or others in order to fend off AskMe judgment concerning their taking actions during the pandemic that are clearly driven by need (even potential life-or-death emergencies) and not frivolous. This troubles and saddens me.

Metatalktail Hour: Mundane observations

Happy weekend Mefites! This weekend I'm curious to hear your little observations -- maybe about the weather, or new things you've noticed in your living space, or your pet's personal habits, or minor mysteries unfolding outside your windows.

163: You must understand!

It was a time known as The Great Resetting, when, after a months of wandering in a week late or so with episodes, jessamyn and I finally managed to release a new episode smack dab on the 1st. It was spoken of in legend as...episode 163 of the MetaFilter podcast.

Metatalktail Hour: Fun at Home

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I'm curious what you're up to for fun at home. Maybe you've picked up some new hobbies, or returned to old hobbies. (Or maybe you are spending all your time managing small children's distance learning and providing tech support for their Zoom classes, what delight.) Anyway, dazzle us with your stories of fun stuff to do at home!

I've lost my paint

I remember reading a post on either Metafilter/Ask Metafilter in which the comment section got onto the topic of white interior house paint. One person commented that "Such-and-such white paint is the best" with a link. Many people favorited it and I think several agreed with the declaration in subsequent comments. I thought, "What is this great paint that people seem to love?" I clicked through to the paint color and thought, "oh yes, that really is a VERY good white interior paint color." Now I am in need of white interior paint, looking for that comment/link, and I can't find it.

There's a venting thread, but maybe you want to share a surprising good thing that has happened despite the terrible situation in the world right now.

What's eatin', you?

You know what's weird right now? Besides, like, everything? Food. Lots of routines are disrupted, lots of supply lines and food-sourcing habits have gotten all sideways. So: what's going on with your fooding? How's the whole eating thing? Any happy discoveries or rediscoveries? Any weird surprises? Any big shortage headaches? Any horrible cooking failures? Snacking surprises? Foodly frustrations? Can you buy literally any yeast? Get it out, let's talk all kinds of food stuff, let's do a whole roundup of where everybody's at.

Flagged!

Am I the only person who keeps accidentally almost flagging posts instead of favoriting them?

MST Club: Joel's chatriff thing

As foretold in prophecy, at 6 PM Eastern time tonight Joel Hodgson will be hosting a special "social distancing" MST3K show, with the cast of the live tour riffing, in a chatroom setting, the season one episode Moon Zero Two, which is a kind of "space western." We watch MST frequently in our own chat room, keeping each other distantly social long before it was cool or necessary. We're going to be trying to watch and riffing them watching and riffing their old riffshow, in a pleasantly recursive showing, assuming we can set it up correctly. You all are all invented to watch and riff along if you like!

Happy birthday, cortex!

Happy birthday to the guy who probably worries more than most about keeping the lights on in this sometimes only bright corner of the internets!

Magical Mefites Group Update

Long ago we started up a group for magical mefites, it has grown into something that includes mefites and nonmefites alike, and I'd like to welcome polytheists, witches, animists, unidentified flying spiritual practitioners (or nonflying) if interested! Zoom meetings are happening.
