Ah, the O'Callaghan's scones. I'd almost forgotten about them. Thank you for this thoroughly informative comment.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
That brings up an interesting point. Do kid-kennels (daycare or whatever) require proof of vaccination to enroll?
You are right, it's really not fair to compare filthy little disease carrying animals to dogs.
I agree. I can't take my dog to a kennel without proof of vaccination. Are our dogs in kennels more important to protect than our children in schools?

I wouldn't go so far as to call it a Digg clone, but even if you did, a Digg clone for tutorials and the like is a good idea.
In addition to submitting links, registered users can post tutorials and the like directly on Tweako. All the submitted content can be tagged, commented on and voted for by other users.
Registering at Tweako is free and creating the account lets you set up a profile that can track your voting and submission history. There are also tools for sending private messages and initiating a chats with fellow users in you "buddy" list. In addition to a site-wide feed there are also topic and user based RSS feeds.
The site is broken into fourteen broad categories ranging from tips for Mac or Windows users to Rails tutorials. And for something that just went public there's a decent amount of content on the site.

- 4. You should avoid security issues for now and concentrate on multiple user access for maintenance and updates login issues.
- 5. You must not worry about performance. You need to concentrate on making a workable website first. You must keep it simple.
Some details: I wanted to create a development and production environment, with a development server using version control and pushing stable changes to the live production server. I wanted to isolate the databases to a separate database server, with each web server remote logging to the database server (using syslog-ng). As we'll be generating email newsletters to the tune of 60k emails per issue, I wanted a separate machine for that too (PostFix, most likely). And most importantly, I wanted to spend time early in the project hardening everything — mod_security, mod_evasive, firewalls, intrusion detection, chroot jails, OS lockdown, SSH, etc., the works, before we began development
But the IT Manager is saying to do this:
- 10. You must design everything on one server for simplicity and design it in such a way to split the application when you need to do so (when it goes on line). I mean your database, your website, and your email server can all be developed on the same simple prototype server hardware.
- 12. Leave purchasing the actual hardware are for close to the end of the project when it needs to go on line.
I don't believe this is good advice, given we have one year to complete the project I think my route is safest. Can the Slashdot community advise my non-technical managers as to which of us, me or the IT manager, is on the right track? Or Maybe give advice on how to deal with this IT Manager?"
