Oh, weird. This blog's been in my list of daily reads for some time now, and my company uses webmail.us for our mail (great company, btw!). I never connected all the dots until now...this blog, mentions of Roanoke, webmail.us, etc. They all just kind of orbited my VT mental space, never connecting as a cohesive whole. Good thing I don't work for the CIA, I'd suck.


"In the end, if web driven software keeps getting better and better, just maybe I won't feel so tied to a specific platform."

True, but then you will be tied to your hosting service! I don't believe any of the hosting services will make it easy for you to migrate your data to another hosting service.


Actually I just been through this on web hosting. Since I have FTP access to my websites, I just recently used FTP to clone a site that I had at http://sobotta.macosx.com to ones that I have at http://sobotta.org and http://coastal-mountain.com .

I did this because macosx.com decided to get out of the web hosting business and stick with email and support.

Though the new sites where I migrated my macosx.com site to have different entry pages, I've moved all the data and pages over without any problems and relatively quickly.

Our company http://webmail.us migrates data for lots of customers so I'm not sure that data migration is a huge problem at least in my world.
