Moving metafilter to new server October 29, 2004 11:11 AM   Subscribe

Moving on up... If all goes well, I'll start moving everything over to our new servers later today. When that happens, I'll be shutting the site off during the move (to conserve bandwidth for moving actual files). Just a heads up that the site may be down between now and say, Monday at the latest.

Cool! When can we sign up for the super-duper, industrial-strength accounts?

See you soon, metafilter. Take care of yourself.

Matt, when the server does return, My Polling Place would be a nice frontpage link Monday/Tuesday along the lines of the register to vote message.

Like anyone could see this and not think about the avoiding-the-election-spew angle.

Good on you, Matt.

Why dashie, if you do come across anywhere such as you describe, please pass on what you find so that all of us can share in the viewing goodness...

Traditionally, Europe I think.

Matt,
the ticket stub site redirects to metafilter.com. I don't know if this is new or what.
