    I'm allowing time for any foul ups! Already had a teacher ask whys SIMS wasn't working! (I'M ANGRY) I sent an email a fortnight ago to SMT! I'm supposed to feel guilty because they can't do their precious reports! - Yeah I'll revert the upgrade half way, so I don't inconvienence 1 teacher whos leaving their reports to the very last second!

    BAH!

    Upgrading at half term - well, the county are as they look after our admin side (I say look after, upgrade at the last minute causing us problems after the weekend usually). New server, new SQL, new SIMS .
    You just *KNOW* it's all going to go wrong

    We did ours in the Easter break - we migrated our databases to a new SQL box at the same time. Everything went well and is working well.

    Thanks as well due to Dan at WStore for sourcing a really good server deal for us.
