    In the last two days I (successfully) migrated the whole CLUAS site to a new hosting company. This will have resulted in some possilby funny (but uncritical) site behaviour for some people when visiting the site in the 36 or so hours. But things should be settled down by tonight for everyone (Friday May 19). So why is it not settled down before now you may ask. It's to do with 'DNS propogation' taking 24-48 hours to be completed. Want to know what that means in more detail? Then check this out: www.allstream.com/customercare/business/internet/what.propagate.html Why move the website? Well for a period there, there were (fairly) occasional problems in accessing the website for people. But that's not the main reason. The main reason is that the new hosting company (www.crystaltech.com) offers a technolgy pre-installed on their servers that I want to use to create a new 'Content Management System' (CMS) for the CLUAS site. The CMS technology in question is called DotNetNuke (www.DotNetNuke.com - an open source project built on the .NET platform). In June I'll be getting my teeth stuck into this project.

    The sample sites from DotNetNuke look impressive. Will this mean significant changes to the layout of the site do you reckon ?

    In due course it will mean changes to the layout. Significant changes? I don't know yet, need to get my hands dirty with the Content Management System first. Expect there to be some continuity in the look'n'feel with some improvements (along the lines of what was discussed and suggested by members when the fonts were changed 2 or so months ago). eoghan
