Read-only MeFi and the big move

We're looking at moving servers in the next 24 hours, and during the downtime, instead of displaying a giant blank "mefi is down and having a massage" page, we'll do our best to at least have MeFi up for reading and browsing, but closed to new posts and comments (and favorites, flags, etc). We're calling this "read-only" and I wrote more about it on MetaTalk.

But just as a heads up, in the next day or so, you might suddenly find that you can't post to MeFi for a couple hours, but after that, you should be good. We're going to attempt to allow posting from both the old server and the new server so that even during the DNS change, you'll be able to interact with the site.
