Let's talk about stress-relief. When you're faced with stress, what do you do to provide yourself a bit of comfort? Do you cook a familiar meal? Do you listen to a song? Is there a television show/series you re-watch? Maybe you exercise or you drink your favorite drink. Or it's as simple as calling or visiting with a friend or a loved one. What are your comfort hacks? Let's share our methods of dealing with stress. Be well my fellow MetaFilter friends. Remember to take care of yourself and know that you matter.

Why does this page display correctly even though the hack has been fixed

I found this page via the wiki, and wondered why it still displays correctly? Amazing to see it being tested and fixed in one page! I would like an ELI5 as well as a more technical explanation. Although this doesn't technically require community input I do feel it deserves to be seen (again in some people's cases.) (Noobs - scroll down to see!!) *smiley face emoticon*

The Single Best Way I've Found to...

The Single Best Method I've Found for... Given the perennial popularity and utility of "What's your favorite way to X" AskMe questions, and recipe questions, and frankly, the to-me fascinating quality of stuff like this, why not have a MeFi section devoted to lifehacks, recipes, and other time/money/environment/effort-saving shortcuts? The "Eat Me" Wiki, for example, is a nice compendium... but it looks like someone put some effort and time into it. Why not just have a section in which MeFi users can post lifehacks at random, so that users can just find these things via tags? Applying the voting system used for Projects might add to such a section's usefulness.

Questionably useful use of Python

Script for turning exported MeFi comments into XML, if you're into that sort of thing. [more inside]

Getting it from the horse's mouth.

This is why I still read MetaFilter.

Learning to code with MeFi's RSS

Looks like Hackety Hack is teaching kids to code with some of MeFi's own RSS feeds. Neat!

Trackbacks Disabled

Have trackbacks been disabled? Or is it just that nobody wants to link back to Metafilter anymore?

My name is demo, for we are many

please oh please would someone enable new users on mefi again. the shame and humiliation of posting as "demo" is monumentally soul-destroying. Won't anyone think of the children?

You used to be able to leave this blank.

I think I smell a (mefi) rat

A gigantic "MEFI RAT" is flashing when I load the page. Or maybe "SOME FINE BUREAUCRATS" is. Either way, it's pretty clever. (How's that working out for you?) And I can't find it in the source, so it's both clever and sneaky.

Is this a hack, or a Haughey?
