Moving images/scripts/styles to a new server

We're in the process of moving all our mefi.us and images.metafilter.com/styles.metafilter.com/scripts.metafilter.com requests from one old linux box to a new one. The DNS switch was thrown a couple hours ago so chances are users will be hitting the new box very soon.

We did notice some slight slowdowns serving up images on the new server, but we are working on tweaks to the server settings and should get things back up to speed soon. Ultimately, if all goes well, you won't even notice we moved to a new server.
