LearnedLeague: We Have The Technology

As you may have heard, LearnedLeague suffered a catastrophic server failure on May 5. Their hosting company lost the whole site, with no backup. (Exclusive documentary video footage of LL's hosting company.) Fortunately, Thorsten is a smart fellow, and had his own local backups, and he has now rebuilt almost the whole site. Private Rundle rosters didn't survive, though. You need to re-register for the MetaFilter Private Rundle if you want in for LL77. [more inside]

Post about a low-velocity car crash involving dozens of vehicles

A few years back (ten maybe...) I remember seeing a post here (I think) consisting of a gallery of 100 or so images of the wreckage of an accident that happened the night before when one driver crashed into nearly every car along the side of a street in a neighborhood. Scraped up car, dinged up car, mirrors sheared off, after car, after car, after car... Anyone have a link for the post or the gallery for me? I can't find it anymore.

Mefi discussion of Air France crash continues on Wired.com

Wired magazine contributing editor David Wolman recently unearthed this Metafilter thread [now closed] full of armchair opining about what may have led to the crash. When we forwarded it to an Airbus captain we know who is usually understated, he offered an uncharacteristically lengthy reply

I don't know what that payloadz ad is but when I click on it, absolutely nothing happens. Nothing. Anywhere. Especially in my browser.

Thread crashing Firefox on Mac

I've tried clicking on this thread four or five times using firefox on mac. Every time it borks everything - it doesn't crash, but it becomes totally non-responsive (cannot change tabs, even). Is there something evil in there, or is this just one of those things?

MeFi's down. Again.

Administrators! It seems to me that this website has been having a lot of downtime recently; well, this century. Do we know any more about what is causing it, and are there plans to combat this phantom menace?

thisislondon crashes IE for me. you?

Clicking on this link: http://www.thisislondon.com/dynamic/news/story.html?in_review_id=489715&in_review_text_id=447099shuts down my browser (IE5)...sad part of it was that it happened about five times before I figured out what was going on. Since folks are commenting, I presume it's not happening to everyone? Just tried it three more times, same thing. You know, I saw a white van with some strange antennas on it driving around here earlier...

Why does this crash my browser

...and sometimes metafilter crashes my browser (ie5 on windows 2000; lots of times, actually), but if i go to haughey.com, click through to a detail from the menu on the right, then click through to "home" from the top of the page, i get there fine. quite odd, and i wonder why this is. i also wonder why photoshop always crashes right along with the browser, and only when i go to metafilter.

i do love metafilter, though, and this is the only thing that prevents me from loving metafilter in an "all-out monkey love slamfest" sort of way. well, not really.
