Help finding this now-offline piece?

I hope this is okay to ask - I'd love to find the piece from this excellent thread from the blue (Kate Good talks about her husband's surgery for The Toast's series about trans* matters). It was an excellent piece about love and trans* matters but also about just doing the things you can because that's what you do. The toast is gone and I'm having trouble even Googling the author to see if they have other works I could check out, or have published this piece elsewhere. Thank you in advance for any tips!

After I updated my iPhone to iOS4, the "skip to menu" link at the top of the pages of the mobile site no longer works after a page has been reloaded. [more inside]

If you give a grouse a cookie

In December, OmieWise posted a fantastic link to Gourmet Magazine's Favorite Cookies 1941–2008. Most of the pages for earlier years' recipes are now gone. Gourmet isn't writing back. Anyone have the presence of mind to save some of these? [more inside]

FSI Languages Site Question

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]

Cortex restarted genefilter. It's in beta but still good. Forgive me if this has already been mentioned.

We have box sets.

We have box sets. Slashdot has the goods on Amazon trying to give flashbacks to MetaFilter with their new and improved pricing shenanigans in which they deliver two box sets to lots of people for the price of zero, wait a five days (crossing over Christmas in the process), and then demand that people return them unopened. Now they've begun charging people's credit cards for what Amazon decides they should have paid.

Link tweaking: is a redux to supplant dead links justified, or should the links just be tweaked?

previously on mefl here, but the content is old and that link dead so I thought it was worth another post.

As meehawl points out, we've discussed Aphex Twin infinitely. If an old link breaks, is it best to send a message to jessahowie to update it, rather than dredging it back up on the front page?

Can we get a redo? mickeyz just screwed up his post and put the body text where the title was supposed to go. Instead of deleting it outright, can one of our benevolent overlords repair it and put it back? It's a legitimate FPP, otherwise.

Project Memory Wiki

I run a project called MemoryWiki that collects and archives personal memories. I was wondering if I could repost some short memoirs from MetaFilter, namely, those on "life changing experiences" found here here. I will of course include a note on every memoir I repost stating that the source is Metafilter (and I'll include a hyperlink). MemoryWiki is non-profit (it's really just a hobby). Is this kosher? Thanks.

Broken links in the Asymmetric aircraft thread

The first two links in this thread don't work. One is a geocities page that has exceeded its bandwidth, the other just never loads for me. Hoping to get alternates - I like the post.

Ask Me Anoymous

With all the recent talk of Anonymous Questions on AskMe, I thought I'd learn me some php, and create a supplementary website where people can pose anonymous questions to be asked on AskMe by the more brazen metafilter members. I guess that this falls under the "Don't self link" rule, so I hope you'll forgive the intrusion.

So I decided to build it myself...(and then it died)

FineIllGetMyOwnDamnPonyFilter - A couple days ago I became cranky that AskMe didn't have several features I felt were vital to making it work right - A keyword/topic search, categories, an area to summarize the answers, a way for the poster to sum things up, a moderation system so that quality rises to the top, a way to find if my question has already been asked, etc. I'm sure Matt will build this stuff eventually, or not. So I decided to build it myself. [more inside]

Sick Nick cartoon blog

One would think that sicknick.org would be the ideal link for MeFi. Nikahang Kowsar isn't quite mainstream, so a lot of people haven't seen his stuff before. His stuff is very interesting, and should warrant discussion. AND YET...! [more]

We have been praised for 'strikingly literate commentary'

Metafilter spotting. I was slow to post this, thinking someone would ahve already picked it up.. while I like the props for 'strikingly literate commentary', the representative link is not *really* representative. (In my opinion)...

Metafilter Census

The results of Steve_at_Linnwood's small-sample MeFi census are online. Of more amusement value than scientific, of course. I thought this chart was particularly interesting in its lack of a middle ground.

Commenters Try to Fix Broken Link in FPP

This is interesting. Postroad's post had a bad link and other members went searching for an appropriate link. And finally they did find one which seems to fit perfectly(Good work, Tubes and Real9!)
I had a link too, but hesitated, as I didn't know whether this would be intruding on Postroad's post. How could I tell it was my link he was thinking of? Is it ethical or just Darwinian to provide a FPP's missing link?
So - is it right to "find a link" by proxy, based on a post's wording? (FWIW, I think it's acceptable, but strange).
We all know people who post to the FP should check that their links work. But shouldn't they also hang around for an hour or so to see if any there are any solvable problems?
