Things To Consider Before Upgrading 10 Years ago  
As everyone knows, 1.0.3 is just around the corner. Here are some suggestions before you get ready to take the dive.

[ul][li]Backup your system. All of it. (You\'re doing that on a regular basis anyway, right? ;) )[/li]
[li]Notify your members of possible downtime. You never know what problems to expect.[/li]
[li]Setup a local sever for testing such as JSAS ( http://jsas.joomlasolutions.com/ ) or a LAMP install ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAMP_(software_bundle) ) Install configure it with your current site and database. Then you can do a dry test run without running the risk of messing up your live site.[/li]
[li]Did I mention backup? :D[/li]
[li] Using a custom template? It may need to be updated before it will display properly. If you are depending on someone else updating your existing template it is a good idea to wait until that update can be performed.[/li][/ul]


UPDATE: I created a flash demo to show you how to install JSAS on Windows.
