Nick Craver coded the back-end (the most difficult part) before going on paternity leave; I only put a front-end on it.

comment Feedback requested: New "recommended" homepage algorithm, phase 3
@damryfbfnetsi while it is enabled on all sites, only Stack Overflow has certain machine learning algorithms running to correctly classify a user's tag preferences, so results will vary a bit more.

comment How do I manually lookup a route in the RouteTable MVC.Net?
Great article and I'm going to use your method here on Stack Overflow. However, I think there's a bug with _pathInfo = uri.Query; - PathInfo looks to be anything between a url's extension and the ? query string delimiter, e.g. http://test.com/page.aspx/path/info?query=1 would have PathInfo = /path/info. Having the query in PathInfo was causing routes to not match for me.

@0x499602D2 yeah, I'm seeing issue in a calculation that is now cached for a bit. Investigating.

As usual, looks like an issue w/ caching. A fix has been deployed that hopefully prevents the blowup.
