from sea to shining sea

If we did our job right, you shouldn't have noticed that we just moved reddit across the country! For the last few weeks, we've been preparing to cut over to our new datacenter in San Francisco, which we just completed this morning. Please let us know if you notice anything weird (as if we'd have to ask...)

We still have a few services to move along (e.g. recommendations), but everything will be back cruising soon.

While in Boston, we rented space from ServerCity. If you're in the area and looking for space, give these guys a holler. Off the top of my head I can think of twenty or so people who should consider it. We were there for over a year, and things would have been much more difficult without their help.

that's Dr. Slowe to you

Last week our very own Chris Slowe went back to Cambridge to collect his PhD, and returned home Dr. Chris Slowe. Congratulations, Chris!

hotter hot page

We tweaked the hottness algorithm a little last night to try and churn things up a bit, and it looks as though it's working as intended.

Speaking of churning things up, lots of drama the last couple of days, eh? For the first time in the last almost-two-years, something dramatic happened and reddit users DIDN'T freak out :) Way to keep it classy, you all. It would appear HD-DVD's may be the safe buy now considering even my mother can play them now.
