But there is really no point in switching from ASP to CF. What are you hoping to gain? Going from one dead-end proprietary system to another which both try to lock you into their technologies seems pointless to me. Is ASP not working? Why not just stick with that? Why not get a low-cost Linux server as well and slowly start migrating things? -Rasmus -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
