Atom/RSS parse Error

since this morning i'm getting a parse error for the feed http://xml.metafilter.com/atom.xml (ff live bookmark feed)... but not for http://xml.metafilter.com/rss.xml (xml feed link in mefi sidebar)... just me (and/or my sage reader)? or is it a bug?

My Comments page is missing all of the carriage returns.

Linefeeds/Carriage returns in My Comments missing? Same in both Firefox 1.5.0.1 and IE 6. I'm not talking about breaks between comments, but within comments.

Why is Metafilter "taking a massage" in Firefox?

Why is Metafilter "taking a massage" when I try to view the page on Firefox, but works perfectly fine when I view it in Internet Explorer? I should add that before this morning, Metafilter always worked fine in Firefox. And, despite MeFi's problems, AskMe and MeTa are working fine in Firefox right now.

Errors from style sheets

Firefox 1.5 is throwing up a list of errors from the Metafilter style sheets, mainly (but not solely) about 'font-color'.

Just thought you'd like to know.

Botched HTML formatting

The formatting in my answer here http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/31513#493995
has messed up a bit - I am guessing it's because I used a less-than symbol in the text.

AskMe isn't displaying 'My Posts' correctly.

On AxeMe, if I click "My Posts" (should be "My Questions"), and choose a 1 month time frame, it shows me one 6-month-old quesiton I asked, but not the 7 more recent quesitons (including one I just asked today.) In any other view, no quesitons are displayed at all.

Error message when posting comment

Error message "Element POST is undefined in FORM". Seen this a lot recently, only when adding a comment in MeFi or AskMe.

ColdFusion error

Bugreport: projects.metafilter is throwing a CF error (Element USER_ID is undefined in COOKIE) and dying when clicking "X votes" beneath any listed project when a user is not logged in. Tested on IE and Firefox, cache cleared, etc.

Logging in fixes the issue, but I thought I'd point it out.

"Unclaimed Property Clearninghouse."

The sidebar on the mefi front page says "Unclaimed Property Clearninghouse." Is this a bug or a feature?

Mods can fix that for you....

Could we have a new category for MetaTalk for Oopsie! One day I swear I'll actually learn to type slowly enough to coordinate the output from my fingers with the output from my brain, or maybe just shut up, but in the meantime I've done something amazing even for me. In this thread, I mangled the anchor tag in my comment badly enough that I can't link to it here and refreshing the page will crash my browser. It's probably going to make messes for others, as well, or I'd just hide my red face in shame. Any friendly, helpful moderators looking for gratitude?

My profile seems to think my zipcode doesn't exist.

For some reason in my profile, where it is supposed to say "xx MetaFilter users near this user:" I get "no zip found in the db". I found that strange, as I live in a suburb of DC, but shrugged it off as everyone else living in the cooler parts of town. However, when I got bored and looked into it, I'm 26.87 miles from darksquirrel. Yet darksquirrel is 29.78 miles from jenny18 and they show up in each other's zipcode list. Is this a bug, or have I uncovered the fact that my neighborhood has been blackballed by MeFi?

I'm getting an error message

I'm not sure if it's been noticed already or how long its been going on, but when trying to access Metafilter I get this error message:

The ValueList() function has an invalid parameter: getLinks.link_id.
Parameter 1 of function ValueList which is now (getLinks.link_id) must be pointing to a valid query name.

Should I report every error message I get from the site?

Metaquettefilter: When I see things like "Parameter 2 of function Right which is now 0 must be a positive integer" when I'm trying to get my nigh-hourly dose of ask.mefi, should I just assume a wizard did it, and it'll all get taken care of, or should I report it? I *hate* the idea of being the 3000th person to complain about something and thereby be part of what's keeping it from getting fixed....

The timezone slips occasionally.

PST slippage in the blue... Occasionally my time reference on MeFi gets whacked back to PST, though my preferences are EST. When I see the problem, I edit my profile (changing nothing), submit and ta-da, EST. Don't need no pony, just bringing it up. Happens ~ once a month.

I messed up some html with a single quote.

I inserted a single quote in a post on accident and the MeFi code that normally would be the rest of the page (i.e. all the buttons and such) showed up in my preview textbox.
