-- Procedure for Web site outages
-- Backup plan - still not resolved with Joe. Have daily backup of database on same disk as real copy. Mirrored disk. Need to have offsite repository as well. All but what's in \files directory (images) ... that's not being backup up well now.
-- Drupal 6 ...
-- Store issues: Ubercart membership process - expiration date processing. Ann to work up some test scenarios.
Some people still having trouble with IE 8 and checking box ... lower half of screen is messed up - don't see Review button. Need to click IE 7 compatibility. Add prompt to big red box at top. Ann to give Walt sample language to include.
-- ebase fields to push to the Web site; synchronization plan.
