"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Pay No Attention to That Man Behind the Curtain

We’re taking care of some technical business today so the site will be frozen for new posts and comments starting at 5 p.m. eastern standard time. We should be back up in a few hours, maybe more–know never know how these things go.

You’ll have to reset your passwords. Sorry for the hassle. Bear with us. Thanks.

Alright, but only because you used that graphic.

Ah ... Simpsons ...

OK, I think I've closed all the comments everywhere except on this post.

Any comments posted after this one will probably not get moved over to the new server.

If you're seeing this, you're on the new server. Welcome!

I am seeing the new server now. You may need to reset your password with the "Lost my password" link on the login page.

The new server uses a different encryption code from our old one, I guess, so the passwords didn't successfully make the transition.

OK, and I'm also turning off (for now) the requirement that you must have commented before in order to avoid moderation.

That may result in some more spam in the interim, but we'll deal with it for now rather than make everyone go through that hassle.

BTW admin == kenarneson, in case you were wondering.

That wasn't so hard. Though, a note for anyone else who doesn't use their username as their "display name", you'll have to change the "display name" in your profile, as (for my account at least) it defaulted to "user name".

[7] Ken, the preview comment button is missing right now, just FYI. I don't know if that's temporary or unintended, but I wanted to let you know.

[8] Thanks, that's a Wordpress plugin I forgot to plug in on the new server. Will fix.

Hm, couldn't get it to send me a new password. But I just re-registered, no big problem.
