A Categorically Different Ancestry.com

I powered up my backup computer this evening and accidentally tried logging into the Ancestry.com message boards using my old username (the one I used before the Fall 2006 update). This sent me into an alternative universe where all the messages posted in the last few months had vanished, the "Home" link pointed to www.ancestrystage.com (presumably the in-house domain used for development), and the main message board page included a few unexpected categories. Only after clearing my cookies and logging in again did I arrive at the Ancestry.com we all know and love.

For those of you interested in this sort of thing, The Generations Network also owns the domains myancestrystage.com, myfamilystage.com, and genealogystage.com.
