Final Countdown

I met with the server admin and the network admin and we've decided to launch on or around September 13. The server admin is going to put IIS and the current website on the same server as the new website running Apache. That way we hope to be able to run both websites simultaneously using the same domain name.

I also met with the Website Team and developed a marketing plan involving me sending lots of emails to staff, a promo and tutorial video, posters, and web ads.

I'm starting the Drupal optimization process and have come across a very handy checklist:

I also installed the Boost module.

I meet with the server and network admins tomorrow to make a launch plan.

Final Push

I've finished Tax Information and Microfilm Collection (375 records) and am about to enter the homestretch of the redesign process.

I'll be working with the server admin and the network admin to prepare for the launch. I'm hoping to launch on Labor Day weekend. Wish me luck!
