The percentage of Mac users of MetaFilter

Is the percentage of MetaFilter visitors using OS X or iOS higher, lower, or equivalent to the 9.5% of computer users in general?

Pony request: option to disable editor shortcuts

The keyboard shortcuts in the editor (which I think are recent since I haven't noticed them before?) clash with OS X's text-area shortcuts. Specifically, ^B for bold steps on the systemwide ^B for "move cursor back one character". Can we have a user preference to disable these?

MTU values still causing problems?

MeFi (and sub-domains) are still blocked to people with the wrong MTU settings using OS X (previously). Right now I can't access any of the sites following a complete reset of my router last night. Safari halts on *.metafilter.com when the status bar says, "... Completed 3 of 4 items". This happens on both my computers connected to the router. I'm currently accessing via www.siteglove.com, an anonymous proxy. To be honest, I'm not sure if the MTU value is causing the problem, but there's clearly something wrong. Admins: Please look at the comment on the previous threads about firewalls blocking network discovery traffic (from user eriko). That's your cure. Windows computers work around this automatically. Other computers don't, unless the user tweaks!

Apache startup page found on AskMe

Using Camino on OS X, I get the Apache startup page ("Test page for Apache Installation" is the Title) when I try to go to ask.metafilter.com. I can't reproduce it on either Safari or Firefox on my machine, only Camino.

Bug on my AskMe answers page?

Wondering if it's just me, or a bug: go to my answers on AskMeFi. Scroll down to the first answer, "comment posted at 11:35 AM CST on May-21-06", that is beneath the question, "I believe that another tenant has place an air "freshener" in the hallway out side of our apartments in violation of their lease. I want it removed. What should I do?".

When I click on this, my copy of Firefox goes a little bugshit. I can click on the tabs, but the actual display in the screen doesn't change at all, and a lot of the interface elements become unresponsive. I have to quit (not force quit, the menus are still accessible). I'm using Firefox v1.5.0.4 for Mac OS X, using the Whitehart-NC theme.

More broken.

Matt. More broken.

I logged in from another machine - OSX 3.9, safari 1.3.2
I get that goofy code that I have to type...and it doesn't redirect correctly. You'll see it when you logout and back in.

MeFi RSS Dashboard plug-in

I've written MetaDash, a Dashboard plug-in that is an RSS reader for MetaFilter and Ask MetaFilter. I'd like to ask Mac OS X 10.4 users for your comments and suggestions for improvement...

OSX dashboard widget for recent MeFi threads?

So we have a bunch of intelligent os x programmers out there, right? Anybody willing and able to create a dashboard widget that spits out the past 10 threads in MeFi, or favorites that someone might want to track, or threads with the latest comments, etc? I just upgraded to Tiger and love the widgets; unfortunately, not enough of them are seriously practical for me. This, on the other hand, would be very useful.

Why does the "white" template load slowly using IE on Mac OS9 or X?

The white (ie the blue with the white option set) takes an age to display for me using IE on Mac OS 9 or X; far slower than it used to be. The status bar usually reads something about loading javascript/comments.js and activespell.js (IIRC) while I'm waiting.

Has something changed? Grey and green are fine.

Mac bloggers ahoy

I don't use blogger, so I don't know if this functionality exists elsewhere, but this looks pretty cool for blogger users on Mac OS 10.1.
