Took a little longer than we thought, but the server move has finally reached this site. Antony will be moving us over today. The forum is down for the duration, but it should be available and vBulletinized by evening. It'll be a couple more days before details like FTP access and DNS propagation are ironed out; it shouldn't interfere with updates, but if it does, don't be too surprised.

To tide you over, here's what was going to happen today at the forums:

PointyHairedJedi: Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?
Zeke: (stabs PHJ in the eye)

I have a couple of other items today. First, the error I corrected in Five-Minute "Concerning Flight" was Leonardo da Vinci's speaker credit (and I also fixed it in the "Scorpion" and "Requiem for Methusaleh" fivers, as well as Kira's First Fiver Retrospective). That credit has always been "da Vinci," but as many people have pointed out in the wake of Dan Brown's preposterous The Da Vinci Code, that's not correct. "Leonardo da Vinci" is the Renaissance equivalent of "Spock of Vulcan." Now that I know that, I've corrected the speaker credit to "Leonardo." The one reader who definitely spotted the change and knew the reason was Draknek; he even pointed out one I missed in the actual dialogue, so I thank him for that.

And speaking of thanking people, today I'd also like to thank DoctorWho42, a Wikipedian who recently went to the trouble of linking to every single one of our ENT and DW fivers on the corresponding episode pages at Wikipedia. Our traffic has increased quite a bit as a result. I don't expect these links to last -- someone is sure to go after them sooner or later on notability grounds -- but I really appreciate the effort he's gone to. Many thanks.
