Frequent-contributor Mike Faris has rewritten one of his most popular articles, so you don’t have to know about previous software packages to follow his steps. He has plans to write additional migration articles as well, which you will find here. This is what makes Cool Solutions so cool. Smart people, sharing. Thanks Mike!
