Ask Metafilter doesn't often cover cooking, but when it does, it's usually insightful, as it's an intense, distilled community of smart people without a lot of chatter and inanity (sort of like Chowhound!).
They have a very active and interesting thread going on about making great homefries:
If anyone has comments on the topic in general or the metafilter suggestions, specifically, I'd love to hear them. I'm hoping to one day devise a relatively healthy home fry recipe that still tastes good.
