How the heck do you catch up after a MeFi hiatus? I've been too busy to read the site the past few weeks, and a zillion posts have passed me by. What's the best way to filter the Filter? What'd I miss?
I haven't been on-line -- and so visiting Metafilter -- for some time (three months). Can anyone suggest some key threads I should read to catch up? I just logged onto the front page only to be told there have been over 1400 threads since my last visit ... would anyone like to volunteer to be archivist?
