|Long Description||As the ingenuity of criminals has developed over time, so have the techniques for catching them. The murderer Dr. Crippen's attempted getaway was foiled by the first use of radio at sea, and fingerprint evidence first secured a conviction as far back as 1902. Keith Skinner, a leading crime historian, and Alan Moss, a former Chief Superintendent, have trawled through the archives and selected twelve such fascinating 'firsts' from the history of the world-famous Scotland Yard - including the first 'wanted' picture in the press, the first successful use of identification parades, and the first conviction based on ballistics evidence. A lively narrative is supported by many previously unpublished images and documents from the Scotland Yard files at London's National Archives.|

This weekend was a long one. We installed a new database server and copied all the data from the old server to the new one.
Then of course, we had to sync all the new data that collected on the old server while we were setting up the new server.
It was a time consuming process but we didn't have even one minute of down time over the weekend. The switch over was seamless.
The old server is becoming our backup server with instant data replication. This way, we no longer need to shut the site down for a couple hours each week to perform data backups. We can also run some of the more processor intense extract processes using the backup server instead of the live main server.
All these changes should mean more up time, faster response time and fewer issues long term.
