David, you're psychic.  Yes I think there was turnover.  I think that 
the person who formerly held my position built a camp in his office 
barricaded with Macs and his Mac server.  The IT dept refuses to 
service it.

As for me...  server?  duh.

I agree the site is too slow.  It is also true that the IT people 
seem to be tuned pretty much an 'all Microsoft' channel.  In one of 
my interviews I had to explain why I _didn't_ want to build with 

I wish I wish I knew Unix, because I actually heard someone say I 
could have use 'any server' I want.  I'm worried about NT, about 
security.  All pages on this University site will go through my 
office.  They want the designs to follow a template-like structure. 
Server Includes would really be helpful here.  Can anything like this 
be done on NT?

Since you all are already talking about the servers, I may as well 
start asking my questions.  I think it would be best to make an 
informed decision BEFORE moving the site.
