      Actually, because I've implemented the changes in a sufficiently transparent manner that we can run Slashdot on the new Apache 2.2/ModPerl 2.0 side by side with the current Slashdot implementation, even sharing the same back-end database, short of the announcement, no one will likely even realize the switch has occurred. The plan will be to spin up front end web servers running the new code base one at a time while spinning down the servers running the old code base. Nice and painless.

The Wright Bothers weren't the first to fly. They were just the first not to crash.
