open source migration progess

We have now done 3 seperate days of “duplciation”, testing our new PHP MIS system agianst our existing MS database with ever improving results.  Every time we test it in duplicate offline mode we find new things to fix or improve, but its now so dangerously close I can almost grab it…

But, of course its the silly season and its hard to test when a lot of staff are away on hoilday putting the remainder under extra pressure. So, we will hopefuly be runig a final test day next monday, and migrating on tuesday if its all ok.

Better safe than sorry!

We are also restarting the phone system migration to Trixbox with the support of Senokian. This is the last major infrastructre change before we can replace all our machines (bar 1 for SAGE and graphic design software) with ubuntu OSs.
