The Catalyst/DBIC conversion is much cleaner and better architected IMHO.</p><p>We're looking at moving the website out onto another box (it currently runs on a work spare) with the backstage management stuff - if that happens the main website may also start doing more dynamic things too...</p> nigelm 2006-09-12T15:56:57+00:00 journal
