Metafilter DNS change?

I can no longer reach the site using, I have to add the 'www'.

It's not really a bug, nor is it actually bad or even annoying. I just noticed cause my bookmark doesn't work anymore.

hmmm, metatalk was unreachable for a bit last night too.

I've been unable to reach the site for about three or four hours even with the "www".

My name server box is moving, so I added my registrar's nameservers to cover me during the move. I set a wildcard to this IP, so should still work.

IE/Win users can also just type plain old "metafilter" into the address bar, then Ctrl-Enter. Wheee!!!

indeed that seems to work. weird thing is if you visit under a different subdomain than where you logged in, your cookies do not seem to be recognized. e.g. i logged in at but when i come back via i have to log in again.
