What a surprise! I checked
http://www.nupedia.com/pipermail/wikipedia-l/2002-January/date.html to be
sure and see no announcement that the 'pedia was cutting over to Magnus'
http://www.wikipedia.com/wiki/special:RecentChanges doesn't even list a page
that obviously mentions this historic event.

Oh, well. What's done is done. But I have noticed turmoil that I can't keep
up with. All the links seemed to be getting generated or interpreted
incorrectly (or both), pointing to create-a-page. But links of the form
http://www.wikipedia.com/wiki/something worked fine. Now as I write, all
seem to point to the home page. Sigh. Thrash, thrash, thrash.

I looked through the last 5,000 changes and see mostly [Automated
conversion] comments.

Would one of these users who have been active care to comment?
