A Long Bet Pays Off

Cool news from Archive.org:
11 years ago, on the site longbets.org, a friendly wager was made between two mavens of the web: Jeremy Keith and Matthew Haughey. The bet, to be revisited a decade and a year later, would be whether the URL of their wager at Long Bets would survive to a point in the semi-distant future. That is, this day, February 22nd, 2022, (2/22/2222).

As of this writing, the URL absolutely has survived.

Trivial Donation

Metafilter’s quasi-official Seattle Trivia team Manifest Destiny’s Child has, in a follow-up to last week’s 20th anniversary triumph, won again this week. As we (this week: Errant and party (if you’d sign up, you could get an actual name), clew, cgc373, Slarty Bartfast and yr obt svt) did last week, we are donating our winnings to the site (a bit less impressive at $32 but that’s what we got). We’d like to encourage any other MeFi groups that might come into similar riches to think of the goodness that is Metafilter and help sustain this forum.

★ I help fund MetaFilter!

Did you know that there's a Chrome extension that will let you add Metafilter's Amazon affiliate code to every Amazon link you click? It also adds the tag every time you navigate directly to Amazon. It works on all international Amazon sites and a couple of other Amazon-related sites. [more inside]

Child's Play Charity collects money, toys, and video games to improve the lives of the young patients in children's hospitals across the world. Over at MefightClub we've just started our third annual annual donation drive. [previously] [previouslier] If you'd like to donate too, we'd love for you to do so under the MefightClub as MeFi-offshoot banner, but donation any which way would be a fine thing for you to do. It is a Good Cause. [more inside]

taosbat SOS

Tragic news from one of our own. May I be the first to suggest we get a best answer for this question and make donations as a group? I don't know what else to do. Ideas?

Amazon donation bug

Clicking on the "Donate" link brings me to the Amazon donation page, then kicks out to the home page. I'm using MSIE 5.5:

MetaFilter reaches $1000 on Amazon

Hey, since MetaFilter just reached a thousand bucks on Amazon (plus some unknown amount on PayPal...) don'tcha folks think Matt should take Kay out to dinner or something, as his reward for doing all this work?

I know that would be at least as exciting as another 128MB of RAM or whatever...

Cheap bastards

from todays' dack.com

"What's wrong with this picture? In a few short weeks Andrew Sullivan's weblog has collected almost $3500 in microdonations. By contrast, Metafilter -- a community site where people feel like stakeholders, and presumably have a greater motivation for giving -- has been stuck at about $750 for weeks. Are the musings of a Catholic gay conservative really that popular? Or are Metafilter readers just cheap bastards?"
