Well this note won’t move markets or anything since we’re talking just a handful of users here, but Nimsky family ops here in California - after long and arduous discussions - has moved its email hosting from Google Apps For Your Domain to a hosted Zimbra implementation provided by 01.com.
Zimbra rocks, and I’m glad they got picked up by Yahoo. For more on why we moved and some tips for making the jump yourself, read on. If you could care less about switching email, skip the click.
In my last post (April!) I said that I was moving to Media Temple and Expression Engine. I have used Expression Engine for years to run Kidzwire and I think its one of the best pieces of publishing software written. I also have an active Media Temple account and like their hosting setup quite a bit. One of the few weakpoints of Expression Engine however is that EE’s stock templates are relatively few and are really meant to show you how to use EE to achieve a variety of formatting effects. Customization therefore requires diving into code.
This note celebrates our singular accomplishment of messing up Space Mountain at the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California. We had a bunch of people unhappy with us.
