As I've mentioned in a few posts last week (and other bloggers on MSDN and TechNet have shared), the blog migration is getting underway tonight. As this post goes live we are backing up the millions of posts, users, comments, images, files and profiles to begin the journey to the new platform.

You should now find the comments on all blogs have been turned off though if you need to contact the blog authors many of them have a "email blog author" link on their blogs - feel free to use it.

As the week goes on, I'll try to provide more insight into just what's happening in the migration, more details on the new features and anything else that might be interesting for folks to know.

This is a big, big migration (and long overdue) so we thank you in advance for your patience and grace as this move takes place!

Thanks!
