How did that sound? “Can I help you?” Did you read it in a polite, helpful way?  Or maybe you read “Can I help you?” and pictured a big burly man spitting into a tin and cracking his knuckles threateningly… (apparently I have a western movie playing in my head).  My point is, first impressions are important.  If someone were physically walking into your store, how would you approach them?  Now let’s look at your online presence; what first impression are you giving?

We have been planning a server move for many months. Well, we had been planning to move one of our production servers this weekend, and the other one in a couple of weeks. However, communications went out to all our clients that this was the weekend of the move so we just moved both servers at once. I was a little nervous about this at first, as there were a total of four DotNetNuke installations to move, but in hindsight, I’m glad that it’s done now. There were domain names to coordinate and A records to change, moving many gigabytes of customer information including multiple SQL server databases (DotNetNuke and non-DotNetNuke alike) and a hundred other small things, but Don and I just rolled up our sleeves and...
