OK...I know you say you don't have any more time to deal with this now 
but maybe someone else can chime in.  I don't remember what we're doign 
about current user account? Do people need to re-up?

Well this would certainly be nice if we could...

Not my perview for sure...I'm copying Marcus on this one since he could 
probably help out (maybe).

I can help with link changes on the main www site for areas I have 
access to. What I think would be REALLY helpful right now -- today -- is 
a posting on the main wiki and forums pages telling folks that there may 
be outages starting next Friday am (GMT?) for up to a few days during 
the transition. I can't do this but whoever can -- PLEASE take care of 
this today! We don't want the press to go into yet another frenzy.
