Calling all Cards!

Having just mailed my cards for Project G.I.V.E. M.E. (that is, Great Internet Valentine Exchange, Metafilter Edition), and having had at least as much fun as I did with the winter holiday cards, I'm wondering if there's enough momentum and interest for another project. [more inside]

Can't find post about infosec/hacking challenges

I could have sworn that a few months ago someone posted an FPP to a webpage made by a couple of guys who designed some interesting "real world" infosec/cryptography/hacking exercises meant to expand awareness of internet security, and now I can't find it anywhere. [more inside]

This isn't Pirate Bay

Blasdelb, Metafilter is not an academic institution or a lending library. We don't get to use the site to redistribute copyrighted works like journal articles in threads about science, or MP3s in music threads, etc. People in academia can already access the articles in question, who can understand those articles enough to add to the thread, and more than likely we do not need proxy access through your library, as impressed as we all are by your library card. What you're doing is illegal, but more to the point, it helps publishing houses justify onerous terms to libraries I use for my research, which aggravates me to no end when I can't get access to articles related to my work. What you are doing sucks, so please knock it off. Thanks.

stupid computer movies

Looking for a post about glaring errors in hacker movies. I am not sure if it is the post itself or if it came up in the comments, but I'm sure I remember a thread about stupid errors using IT in films, especially 'hacker' type films. Sorry, my search-foo is weak today.

Help me find this old AskMetafilter thread

There was an AskMetafilter thread sometime ago from a company wanting to fire their crazy IT guy, but they were afraid he installed back doors and other nefarious things and didn't know how to proceed. There was some good advice in the thread, but I can't seem to find it. [more inside]

Help me find a hilarious IT-related comedy video

Help me! Looking for a post of comedy video, where the entire video is portrayed as looking at the monitor of an IT guy. Hilarity ensues when a guy from marketing asks him to reboot the Web server, and the IT guy interrupts a game of Halo to help. [more inside]

Travel Medical Tech Support Filter

have pros and cons ever been discussed for separating AskMe's into segregated categories for ( "what do you recommend I do during my three months in X / can anyone recommend a good shoe repairmen in X" ; "radioactive Y on my eyeball when I woke up-- should I see a doctor?" ; and "need help with Z computer-ish code-ism/softwareness" )?
