HELP page

I don't see a MetaFilter HELP page anywhere...and I think some is needed.

For example, tinkering with Preview shows me that some HTML is accepted, but as it looks odd there apparently are restrictions that I can't find. I do see that a simple blank line is fine, and a Paragraph tag breaks the MF formatting.

Looking for someone out there who knows the ins and outs of greymatter

Looking for someone out there who knows the ins and outs of greymatter... Jonathan is having issues with it and photographica.org. It's choking on the update of the index page. He managed to get it going for a short while this morning, but when he tried to delete the dupes and test messages, it choked again. From the backside, off the greymatter control panel, it looks like people's entries are being saved, but the main page just isn't getting updated.

Can you help?

Plotting zipcode data

Anyone have ideas on how to plot zipcode data? I haven't found anything free or near free on ESRI's site or at any of the ColdFusion code exchanges. Are there any opensource simple GIS programs? I could have sworn there was a mapping component to ArsDigita's ACS some group was working on. Anything in PHP? Perl?

I'm looking for something that can spit out a simple map of the US with little dots where the zip code data shows up.

help!

help!

is there a way to dictate, using valid CSS, an area height using pxs that isn't dependant on content?

(that didn't make sense...)

ref: http://i.jcterminal.com/
i'm trying to make the header area (the orange spot that sez 'pigeon farm') exactly 75 px tall, but for some reason, i'm just not getting it. i think it's a brain fart, cuz i know it's damned obvious.

(this might be off topic, but i didn't see a 'help me with my weblog' section.

Cannot edit in IE 5.5

I recently switched to IE 5.5, and I've found that when I "go back to fix a problem" in a followup post, there's nothing there to edit. So I'm stuck with what I wrote the first time.

Oddly enough, I *can* go back to fix a problem on an original post. Is there a difference in how you're doing that on original posts and on followups?

How should this look?

Since the nature of posts and discussion is different here, does anyone think the display should be different than MetaFilter's index page? Instead of time-based (by date) listing of topics, I'm wondering if this area should take on a UBB-style of display (see the glassdog boards as a prime example of these), where there are subject areas, and discussion threads below that. That way, there could be a permanent area for discussion of bugs, another thread permanently dedicated to feature requests, etc., let me know what you think because it could easily be done here.
