FYI: MetaFilter was down for about three hours this morning because of a shoddy power chord. The power chord could wiggle a little bit in the back of the server, and when it did, sometimes the power connection would break. This would happen occasionally as people walked right next to it, jostling it ever so slightly. Today though, it looks like it happened at 6 in the morning in a locked office, so I replaced the chord with one that won't cause it to power down.
I never thought we'd outnumber Lance's army of followers (of which I'm a member).
"So," I clear my throat and hike up my pants, "how bout them last two metafilter links?" Dihydrogen monoxide and an Onion article. Gee whiz.
[the following question is probably un-answer-able]: how do you all decide what interesting things you run across to post on your own personal weblogs vs. post on metafilter? [after all, MF has no central theme or organizing philosophy..., but then again no one should post several times daily on MF...]
What's the difference between MetaFilter and MetaTalk?
I want to feel more meta, but I seem to be highly consistent in my 2 comment:1 link ratio. CrazyUncleJoe clearly has me beaten on that front, but is that really a measure of metatude? More than likely, it's my lack of lists of lists of lists of links to other places.
MeFi is so *very* close... Can Matt break 500 before SXSW? Last push people! Tell your friends! ReRegister with Hotbot!! Let's tear this mother UP!!! I think 500 registered users will give Matt the credibility he needs for the weblogpanel (I think that we should decide that weblogterms with the word weblog in them should lose all internal spacing - you know, for weblogconsistency.)
