Planned maintenance starting at 8pm EDT

The final step in transferring Designer News to our new overlord Andrew Wilkinson is going to require some downtime as we migrate the site to a new host. I'll try and minimize the downtime as much as possible, but it's mostly unavoidable. I will put the site into a read-only mode, which will allow you to continue to read stories, but you won't be able to submit, vote, comment, etc.

Once the migration is finished, DN will live at a new URL! Don't worry though, because news.layervault.com will redirect you to the right place.

    I wish the Gods of Migration be with you.

    Not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but some of the numbers look to be of a different typeface.

    The points stats on each post and the points next to your user name in the top right look to be Helvetica or Arial.

      We've noticed that too. Not sure what's causing it yet, but we'll figure it out. The font stack didn't change at all during the migration, but a new typography.com account was set up.

    Did you guys fix the stray 1 reply bug in the sidebar? You can't see it but i am outreaching my fist in wait of reciprocation in the form of a successful fist bump...

    How long until the bad cert is worked out?

      It will be fixed tomorrow. We've purchased it, but it needs to be verified and all that jazz.
