*n*Lab Migration Done

#### Posted by Urs Schreiber

Thanks to Andrew Stacey, it’s finally done: after a bit of testing the $n$Lab has finally successfully migrated to a new server.

That means:

- as far as you go about accessing and using it **nothing in the usage has changed**: in particular you still access the lab at `http://ncatlab.org/nlab`

- but using the $n$Lab should be a **better experience** now: the server reaction is much quicker now, the whole thing should be stable now.

If you are interested in more technical discussion of what happened, see the $n$Forum. But of course, you don’t have to be interested in any behind-the-scenes technical discussion for using the $n$Lab.

Instead, you may want to be the one to create *entry number 2000* by writing a piece on your favorite topic that is ignorantly ignored so far. The moment of this writing the nominal count of entries is 1965.

Viewed from one perspective this may look like a large number. But viewed from the right perspective it is a very small number. We are only just getting started, still. But it’s looking promising.

We need more articles, but we also need

betterarticles, with moretheoremsand betterexplanations.Come on, everyone! Go to the

nLab. Search for your favorite math topic. If it’s not there, add it. If itisthere, add the most important theorem that’s missing from this page… or add a more intuitive explanation of something.I’ve been busy finishing up too many papers to contribute a lot to the $n$Lab, but I had fun adding an entry on semicartesian monoidal categories, with a bunch of examples — and also a theorem about cartesian monoidal categories. These are tiny pieces of wisdom that are hard to find in books. We all have ‘em!
