I am head of .NET development at twentysix.
I have won a Flash Forward award (in the art category) for my work on 15x15
I am an EPiServer certified developer
I love working in C# (mainly ASP.NET) but I'm also a solid Flash developer and I wish I had more time to learn and use Python.
I instigated and implemented Source Control at twentysix (SVN) and bug tracking (using Trac) on Ubuntu.

I like the idea of taking offline prior to deleting

My imagination can't I'm afraid, hence the question. I didn't think you could alter a database while offline, so I don't see how taking it offline could assist in the upgrade process

comment What is the best way to address users storing and streaming music within your company?
"not a technical issue" Fair point! When you've moved the files to the desktops and it still hit's the fan you're gonna get it. Best approach if you're gonna take one is an absolute approach.

comment What is the correct way to backup, move and restore a database that uses Service Broker?
Could you expand a little more on what you mean by "restore the database with ENABLE_BROKER" Do you mean restore the database then execute the ALTER DATABASE or is there a special way of restoring the database with the broker enabled?

Is that the only use for "take offline"?

comment Why would I take a database offline?
re: "changing or upgrading the schema", from books online "OFFLINE The database is closed, shut down cleanly, and marked offline. The database cannot be modified while it is offline." How can you upgrade the schema in this situation?
