Defacto2 Database Migration and Upgrade

We are finally online after a large database migration to MySQL. Not only did this involve converting the old databases and indexes. But also updating and re-optimising the SQL statements and ColdFusion code source. So now you should see a very noticeable speed improvement within most areas of the site that are database dependant. This is more pronounced by the fact that the old databases were stored as Access 2000 files. A standard that was initially released during the dot.com boom and was never designed for web use.
Unfortunately as with any major web site update there might be the possibility of broken code or newly introduced bugs. If you encounter any major problems, please let us know so we can get onto a fix.
