Glad to see Metafilter's back up -- don't know about anyone else, but I was spoiling for my fix...

jeez. I just took the redirect down maybe three minutes ago.

And it was back before Monday arrived. Woo! Now the question is...are there are changes that us end users would notice?

Nope, not really gluechunk. I put the explanation all in the sidebar (you are using the latest browsers and have it expanded by default, right?)

Well, MeFi was my last surf before bedtime. "They up yet??!! They up YET??!!" :) Hey, the first step is admitting you have a problem...

I'm doing some code stuff myself; no idea how I'm getting up in the morning (it's 2:13 am here).

'nite, everybody. :: politely waving to all in the glow of my monitor and toddling off to bed! ::

And those "latest browsers" are what's keeping me up tonight, too. Standards-compliant CSS-ho!

:: and now I'm really going to sleep. really! ::

Yes, I have the sidebar on, but did you update the sidebar *after* taking down the redirect? I swear that new text was not there when I came in at 10:59 or so.

Happy belated birthday, MeFi.

um... sidebar? guess who's not using the latest browser? what is this sidebar of which you speak? can someone give me a quickie explanation without the "you need the newest/latest/greatest..." lecture? I think I saw it once, but like that elusive green flash, it escapes me now. thank you.

You can view the raw content of the sidebar at http://www.metafilter.com/sidebar.html

You make it sound like you don't like stalkers.

We need a MeFi posters anon group. I thought I was having drug withdrawal.

MeFi is like crack, but good! Yayy Matt.

Thanks for the logout function Matt and many congrats on your 2 years.

MeFi is addictive like crack, but MeFi makes you look smart and cool at work.

Smart and cool at work? That's great news - I was worried it makes me look like I'm not working.
The truth is, I'm a metaholic. (Thank you, Happy Birthday MeFi!!!)

Matt is a pusher, he's dealing this stuff out to everyone, and some of those are kids, kids god damnit!

Happy Birthday MeFi! Here's to two more.

Loved the MeFi history with images!

A celebratory haiku:

Happy Birthday
Metafilter's two
Needed fix

That's not a haiku.
posted by daveadams at 9:33 AM on March 19, 2001

No, it's a celebratory haiku. Celebratory in this sense refers to the 4-5-3 syllable pattern.
posted by sonofsamiam at 9:35 AM on March 19, 2001

Dave: I thought you'd be aware of the poetic phenomenon known as the Jamiacan haiku, which involves the 4-5-3 syllabic system and, as sonofsamiam pointed out, is often used in a celebratory manner. I was also using the monosyllabic version of happy pronounced "HPY" without a diacritical break that is often uttered in the Ozarks. Apologies for any confusion.

Congratulations, big boy!
posted by Zeldman at 12:31 PM on March 19, 2001

Damn... outsmarted by poetry geeks. Who would've guessed. :) No, I've never heard of a Jamaican or celebratory haiku, and although I happen to live in the Ozarks, I am unaware of any monosyllabic pronunciation of "happy" as that to which you refer.

I'm obviously living under a rock or something. Help me out! :)
posted by daveadams at 1:19 PM on March 19, 2001

Dave: "HPY" is only spoken by the Ozarkians who live under the face of the earth in loving homage to H.P. Lovecraft. Here's their version of Happy Birthday:

HPY BDAY DR [clearning of throat]
