And stupid motherfuckers write their production apps in it. 😦

I registered for an account on today. Is there a way to migrate easily from one instance to another? Should I maintain two different accounts?

I had to restart my machine because rsync via a Capistrano script was failing to push compiled assets to two different servers.
