After going to school to become a network administrator, Mike, fell in love with programming. He has been a midrange (IBM i, iSeries, AS/400) developer since 2000. He has since added ASP.NET to to his toolbox (around 2006) and now does dual duty writing/supporting green-screen applications and ASP.NET internet and intranet applications. He does a lot of integration between the IBM i and ASP.NET.

Besides his programming day job, he dabbles in PHP and many other areas of tech.

You can find him on his website, @MikeWills, Facebook, and Google+

I am thinking usability here. We are talking about having "normal people" use it. I have used the Windows Explorer version of FTP client. That works pretty slick.

I am looking for options to transfer files back and forth. Files much too large for email. Everything secure.

Considering we only collect up to 50 payments a day, seeing excessive visits wouldn't be hard to see. I hope...

Or mobile? Mobile is a high-priority for us. And accessibility, it is the law for us.

I think we would go a different route with that. We have people of all ages and technical ability use the site. I don't thin CAPTCHA is quite where we would go.

This is exactly what I am afraid of. We could implement standard bot-blocking techniques, but who's to say they aren't paying some foreigners to log in manually and pull in information either.

Two "servers". I have one of those NAS devices that require port 80 to be forwarded to it. I am already running multiple web sites.
