The Discussion

    The old portal is very useful for me when I need to access when I am out and about.

    I connect via my iPhone or iPad and can stop/start services and check statuses. Once the old website is removed this will no longer be possible. I know there are other pepole who will suffer from this as well.

    Are there any plans to allow a non silverlight access to the portal once the old one is removed?
