At this time, I am the only webmaster at the university although I have actually worked here for 38 1/2 years. Yes, I can retire any time with full benefits. I am responsible for the home page (although Pres. Cabinet decides what goes there), train staff/students on using Sitebuilder, plus we have another academic server where the other web pages are stored that don't use Sitebuilder. It is really becoming a large task taking care of all of this. The higher ups here have approved a new web designer position that reports 1/2 time to Public Relations and the other half to Enrollment Services. So, at the present time, I have no back-up. When I'm not here, the laptop has to go with me wherever I am. Some days, retirement looks pretty good!

Hello,I'm in charge of information systems at SUNY Orange, but our budget isn't currently allowing us to hire a full-time web developer, so I was looking for outsourced solutions that other institutions can recommend. We have a few PHP/MySQL applications, and will be shortly moving to OmniUpdate as far as general content management. We also have a Luminis portal.Any suggestions?Thank you in advance.ArturSee More
