Today begins the official process of transitioning SGL from running on Windows, IIS and ASP/ASP.NET which it has run on since its inception in the autumn of 2000 to its new home running on Linux, Apache, PHP, MySQL and WordPress. This process will take some time but I am very excited about the site’s future. Running on a content management system will give us the ability to do a lot of really exciting things with the site and should make the site tremendously more usable for our readership. It will also serve to make it far more easy for me to work on the site when I am out of town or away from home.
Thanks, everyone, for coming to check out the work being done on the new site. This “maintenance” post is the first post made exclusively to the WordPress version of the site.
