The Daily Goodie and Bonus Open Thread: New Server Edition

Good morning, Persephoneers! As many of you know, last night we had to make the move to a shiny new server. It was a tad bit more complicated than we had anticipated (as these things tend to be), and so our diligent yet exhausted editor-in-chief and her army of server gnomes need to take some time to regroup and make sure everything is spiffed up and ready for company.

So I brought some bubble wrap pictures to you all.

I’m aware that y’all hate clicking through to external websites, but believe me that this is worth the click. Here’s probably my favorite summary, which will hopefully entice you to click through for more. Continue reading
