Server Upgrade: Done and Done?

It's been a somewhat grueling few days, but I'm happy to report that the new server is now up. We'll be watching it closely over the next serveral days to see how it performs under real-life load, but thus far the prognosis is extremely encouraging. Where before our hardware was fairly staggering under the load, now it's loafing.
As part of this deployment, we're also introducing a revamped look and a fairly complete reimplementation of our web presence. Check out and let us know what you think. There's also more to come on that front.

Finally, I wanted to thank the (extended) team for going the extra several hundred miles on this project. Allan, JJ, Jared, Dave, Naomi, Trevor: gold stars, 'atta boys, and free sync accounts for each of you. Mitch & I really appreciate your efforts.
