Slow for everyone? Or just me?

I've noticed that MetaFilter pages are coming up slower than usual for me, here on the east coast of the US. It's regularly taking between 2 and 18 seconds for content to show. This is isn't the case for my connection on other web sites. So, I ran some page load measuring tools that try to get a sense for how things load from various places in the world. [more inside]

Share the Hidden-Gem Comments of 2023

Everyone needs a hug, especially those under-appreciated comments we liked so much last year. As seen previously: "Let's show some love for the hidden-gem comments that made you laugh, cry, or cheer [last] year, which you immediately recognized as genius, but somehow slipped under everyone else's radar. As is traditional, please try to stick to comments that received 12 or fewer favorites, and no self-links."

Let me just select or clear a checkbox for each channel that's possible to include in the combined list. Can we do that? Would others be interested in browsing like that?

Local music library streaming thread

I’m looking for a thread from the past month about a few libraries (Seattle and San José are the two I remember) who set up streaming services for local unsigned bands. Searches for “music streaming libraries” or the cities in question haven’t shown me the thread. Help?

We often say "If you have nothing nice to say, feel free to skip this thread" or "Don't argue with other responses in an Ask MeFi thread", but we don't provide the easiest way people can do this. [more inside]
