How to make a compelling case to outsource MS Sharepoint work to experts

This is for a company that is wanting to migrate from on-premise Sharepoint to Sharepoint Online. There's obvious benefits of cost savings to do things in-house, i.e. use IT staff who knows about MS Sharepoint to do it themselves, gain knowledge from the experience. But, what if said IT staff and colleagues are time poor and don't hold any Sharepoint certifications (despite being intelligent generalists) and don't want to take on this type of responsibility? What if this company is quasi-government and has a global footprint? (risk averse) What compelling case can we make to suggest hiring external consultants to do the job for them? [more inside]

Help me migrate away from Evernote

I have been a heavy user of Evernote for several years, but increasingly I find it is unreliable and performs poorly. I need to handle notes which include different media formats, which I don't have to explicitly organize, and which can be large. I don't want to interact with the file system directly. I would prefer an open solution that does these things well and doesn't do other stuff. Help me find a substitute with the features I need -- and migrate my data. [more inside]

Migration Patterns of the North American Nomads?

I'm looking for a documentary my wife saw at Humboldt State in the late 90's about the migration of vagabond peoples between California and Dixie. I'm afraid I don't have much more description than that, apart from an emphasis on younger travelers, say 25 and under, and the theme being these people move depending on the seasons. It's possible this documentary was actually a HSU student project, but I cannot say for sure.

How to transfer all the things: Windows 7-->Windows 7 PC?

We're upgrading a work computer (both old and new have Windows 7 installed). It is ideal that we keep everything the same, including current versions of installed programs. My Windows knowledge is fuzzy at best, but my understanding is that the migration assistant that comes with it won't move programs. How do I do this?

Do wild honey bee colonies ever move into an abandoned hive?

Not far from where I live is/was a wild bee colony in a living but semi-hollowed tree, and I've been observing this colony for a number of years as an amateur naturalist. About three years ago I noticed that the hive seemed empty from winter to winter, and I suspected it was a victim of CCD, but then the next two years after that the colony was back and seemed to thrive. Well, I stopped by this weekend and I find the hive seems abandoned, even after I saw activity earlier this year. I'm not assuming the colony collapsed, but I'm wondering if when it disappeared three years ago, was what I saw the years after that the same hive, or did a new colony move or grow there? Do wild colonies ever recolonize the hive of a previous colony? [more inside]

Is this a good time to see migrating birds in Milwaukee? If so, where?

Mac->Windows migration for a small office: tips and suggestions?

What's the best way to migrate from local to IMAP in Thunderbird?

I need to migrate about 5gb+ of email from the local folders in Thunderbird to IMAP in Thunderbird. There are a lot of folders and a lot of subfolders, and migrating them "manually" has really been a pain in the ass. I've got about a third of the folders over, but I'd love to hear a better solution that will actually keep the folder structure in place correctly, not randomly. Perhaps there's an add-on for this? Cheers.

Migrating WordPress Blog to Tumblr

The site has two years' worth of material, with about three posts per week. I've done a Google search and it seems there are three methods for migrating WordPress content to Tumblr. All involve exporting the WordPress Blog to XML first, which I've done. [more inside]

migrated mac either boots flawlessly or not at all

Macfilter: I have an iMac G5 with osx 10.3.9 that would fail soon after startup because of bad capacitors. I ordered a used replacement running osx 10.5, which booted up fine (the first time) and I was able to transfer all my files and programs from old to newish using target disk mode and migration assistant. After migration the programs worked but when I tried to reboot the new(er) iMac would power down immediately after or sometimes during the initial start. Nothing is displayed. About one in 15 tries boots up normally. I'll try the hardware test the next time I get it to boot, but this problem seems unlike others i have read about. Any ideas?
