It's done, it's out, and check it out!!!

I guess if you got here, you've probably noticed :)

This was a fairly painless upgrade. The boys  in the UK got up early, came into the office and converted over the database, moving the website DNS and then letting me know it was done. By the time I got up around 8 this morning, things were complete and we were testing. Other than a minor permissions issues, things are looking pretty good. I did have to run some T-SQL code to match up new editorials (added as articles) to the existing forum threads, but that's not a big deal. We hope to automate the backfill next week sometime and all new ones work fine.

The biggest changes are on the back end, in the tools I use and how I run the site. However overall I think it makes for a more consistent site that works better. I know that sounds silly, but it makes sense. And it means I'm officially off the code developer team. I have no idea how this AJAX, .NET, Javascript thing works, so all my requests now go into a Q. Hopefully I'll keep the developers, or at least one, for a few months to add a few sections to the site.

Now if we can just get the Google indexing caught up :)
