$25,000 to transition the old ACS Website to a new one sounds way, way, way too excessive!

Unlike the ACS board, most of who wouldn’t know a URL if it dropped into their heaped platter, I kind of do know my way around Websites, domains, registrars and all of that. Remember I can create a new Website, from scratch, in 20 minutes. Plus, it isn’t as if I don’t have Websites. Just look over here >>>>

Moreover, I am always amazed at how primitive the ACS Website is. It reminds me of the early Websites of the 1980s! Talk about being devoid of images. It looks like it was created using a typewriter — a manual one at that. So, this is not This is very, very BASIC, mainly textual, unstructured Website. $25,000. That is CRAZY. There are other words, but, I, unlike some, like to be restrained.

Check out this from hosting specialist Blue Host. $99! BIG difference between $99 and $25,000. I am even willing to split the difference. $5,000 could be more than enough.


Yes, IF the ACS administration didn’t go around constantly bad mouthing me I might even have considered doing this for FREE for Alton. Yes, I create pro bono Websites for folks … example 1 and example 2. It doesn’t take me long.

This is not kosher. $25,000 sounds way out of the ballpark. But, what is new. This Board loves to spend the Alton taxpayers money — they don’t care. At least two of them don’t even know what it is like to be a taxpayer.

    This is a massive misrepresentation of what this funding is for. It has nothing to do with a website. This money is not going to be used to rename a domain but to completely change the structure and configuration of the entire school active directory domain and network as well as all the servers. I get it and I have seen the plan – it is very complex and you wouldn’t be able to do it without weeks of pre-planning and a high-level knowledge of the specific challenges of the domain in question.

      Well, you should take it up it up with the Braysider Reporter. His wording is very clear. Check the newspaper. Says ‘domain transition from the old URL’. Aren’t you on the BudCom? Doesn’t it say BudCom reduced the budget by this number? Given that it is the Braysider it is kind of garbled. But what role did BudCom play? Did they reduce take out this item? Plus where did the $25,000 come from? Did the school get any competitive bids? Cheers. P.S., Your comment was also a bit ambiguous. There was no misrepresentation on my part. That was the newspaper. I trust you have written a letter to the editor putting them right.
