The MeFi 2012/2012 "Hookers And Blackjack" Fantasy Basketball League

After some discussion here, it appears that A) there is a desire among MeFites to play fantasy basketball and B) although there may or may not be a league this year already, in either case there is clearly interest for fantasy basketball that is not satisfied. [more inside]

I got chopped liver in my python while listening to Celine Dion

Ya know, for a moment there, I really was interested to know not only if a kitten could survive inside a python, but the backstory behind how a python got to eat the whole kitten whole in the first place. And then you had to dash my hopes of finding out something interesting only to make a funny. Thanks, I appreciate it. Jerk.

FYI 4 web 2.0, YMMV

Google Reader is pretty crappy at updating certain feeds, especially MeFi and del.icio.us feeds (I'm pretty sure it's been discussed before and chalked up to whatcanyoudo). On a lark, I tried making a yahoo pipe for ask.me that doesn't actually do anything to the feed, just grabs it in, and splurts it back out. And guess what, its been updating like a champ all day. Your mileage may vary, but I thought I'd share this TOTALLY AWESOME and buzzword compliant "hack" with youse guys. It works on my del.icio.us network and for feeds too, which were updating maybe once every couple weeks, if you care.

Why Yahoo Over Google?

Why does does mefi search use yahoo instead of google? I am not particularly interested in individual opinions of the two engines, I'd rather base answers on factual results.

mysterious tag copy

Why do posts without tags appear with the mysterious copy "Tags: Wanna reach people who know their way around the Web? Contact FM." in place of a blank "Tags:" field in the newish Yahoo search results? (posted under bugs out of a better place to file it)

Will the search feature be coming back any time?

Ever since MeFi's search feature went away and it now lets you search google or yahoo, I'm having trouble finding past posts I'm looking for. Right now I'm looking for a post from within the last month or so where you could enter a URL into this website and it would give you a bunch of feedback on how good/bad it was, etc..

Will the search feature be coming back any time? Google/yahoo don't seem to order by date, and seem to mix in all sorts of stuff that clouds up my search. I loved being able to restrict my search to "within the last month", etc...

Search with Yahoo instead of Google?

It has been demonstrated many times that when searching MeFi, Yahoo does a better job than Google-- maybe the search box on the homepage should use Yahoo?

Yahho buys upcoming.org

Yahoo acquires upcoming.org, and our very own waxpancake, (AKA Waxy). Blogger, Flickr, Upcoming.org... Metafilter has quite an impressive collection of alumni.

Made a Konfabulator widget

Did someone ask for a Konfabulator (or should I say Yahoo!) widget? Here you go. Nothing very clever, no match for the Dashboard version, but it gets you started. Let me know if it's any use.

Search is broken again.

Search is broken, part 532. But this time it's a Google bug. Here's an example: I couldn't find a recent excellent AskMe, until iconomy kindly answered my MetaAsk, noting it was called MySonHatesMeFilter. But using Google, even with that unique string, I don't find the original article, but Yahoo and MSN find it. I'm afraid Google is no longer necessarily "your best bet". How about adding Yahoo and MSN search boxes?

Metafilter in Yahoo Internet Life November 2001.

Don't know if it's been mentioned - Metafilter shows up a few times in the November edition of Yahoo Internet Life, including a six-comment snip of the original 9/11 post.

More Yahoo Internet Life dead tree press on MetaFilter

More Yahoo Internet Life dead tree press on MetaFilter: my dad subscribes to YIL and sent me these scans. It looks like an article mentioned on the cover talks about plastic, slashdot, and then metafilter and blogger, and it shows up in a pull out URL section.
