ITS Migrations

While working at RIT Information Technology Services I migrated many institute sites from their old web environment to their new one. Migrating a site entailed:

  • moving the files from the old server to a staging server
  • fixing file permissions
  • converting all PHP3 scripts so that they would work in PHP5 with no errors or warnings
  • editing links to conform with the new URL structure
  • making sure all links worked, validating the pages (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript)
  • moving the files from the staging server to the production server.

Below is a partial list of sites I migrated while working at RIT ITS; there are more, these are just the ones I can confirm I worked on. Please note that by now these sites have most likely been edited by someone else.


I own an HP tx1000z Tablet PC. It’s a really great notebook, but the touchscreen isn’t all I thought it would be. I’d heard about this software called Touchkit that could increase screen sensitivity (among other options), and until today was unable to successfully find it.

Touchkit, made by EETI, has versions for Linux, Mac, and Windows (including Vista). I recommend disabling cursor stabilization if you’re going to be writing: open the Calibration Utility, click the Setting tab, then click Option.
