We set up a new domain for hosting static content like scripts and images at mefi.us
. You might want to add it to your NoScript whitelist.

If you don't run the Firefox extension NoScript
, you won't need to do anything at all.
This is one of several changes we're making in the background to improve the speed of the site. By moving static bits of the site to a non *.metafilter.com
domain we can shave a few KBs of cookies flying around for elements of the page that don't require cookies. And by consolidating all of our previous static subdomains into a single domain, we can reduce the number of DNS requests/page. Everyone wins! (Unless you're running NoScript and actually have to do something in response to this change.)
