HUGE shoutout to @unascribed for making the migration seamless. Basically, if an image request 404s on the jortage end, it will send the request over to the s3 bucket instead during migration. It's a temporary hack but it works to keep the old stuff working until everything is migrated over.

@ben @unascribed this kinda got brainstormed from looking at @amic's solution for seamless migration

@abby @ben @amic that was actually my solution but i did it on-the-fly with ssh access to ami's box and didn't make a local copy

@abby @unascribed @amic WTDWTF is a migration from two different previous forum softwares, both of which sucked

as in one of those git merges where a commit gets merged with its parent somehow
