The hive mind is a genius

If anyone needed evidence of the utility of the MeFi Hive Mind, I submit for evidence this truly awesome question and its answers from AskMe. Good job, everyone!

clarifying mystery links

Occasionally links without any real description are posted to the front page. It would be nice if any user could add a short description that would appear when you moused over the link, so users don't have to click on eight different links to find out what a post is about. [more inside]

Thanks, I enjoyed it. Now who are you?

So, um, who sent out the mysterious "PLEASE ENJOY" MefiSwap CDs?

Please side bar this Microsoft office sound

Could one of these maybe get side-barred? It's not the easiest thing to search for, and it's been asked twice within a 7 day period...

closure on this "mystery nautical apparatus" AskMe thread?

Can we get some closure on this "mystery nautical apparatus" AskMe thread? I'm dying to know what this thing is. Did any of the commenters get an answer from their emails to the Galway port people?

Why can't some people see the link in this thread?

Why can't some people see the link in this thread? I've looked at the source, and it looks fine to me.

Mefi sending traffic my way

Huh? Here's this week's top ten referrals from my station's counter:

1. no referral
2. metafilter.com/mefi/2238
3. google.com/search
4. ask.com/main/followup.asp
5. askjeeves.com/main/followup.asp
6. metafilter.com/mefi/2238/
7. yahoo.com/bin/query
8. real.com/music/
9. altavista.com/sites/search/web
10. yahoo.com/bin/search

I've had people click on my show from my user page or comments, or even someone else's comment linking my show, but a no comment post from a year and four months before I found this place? And I can't see it having anything to do with any other show in the station, either, though some there do lurk here. What is up with that? Any clues?
