Well it has taken a long time to finally move off of WordPress 2.0, but we have finally done it. Welcome to the new look Protean IT!
It’s quite ironic that being an ETL and database developer by trade, it has actually been easier to upgrade this website manually, literally copying and pasting each of the blog entries.
