After many attempts and learning curves I managed to update my Drupal site which was originally built in Drupal 5 to Drupal 7. Due to the my learning curves, late nights and lots of backing up my data and database, I would like to share with you how I managed to update my site that has many contributed modules, had been updated numerous times and to also congratulate Drupal and it community on how future proof Drupal really is.

On the October 17, 2012 Drupal has released their latest update to the Drupal 7 Series from 7.15 to 7.16.
There is no major new functionality due to the fact that new features are only being added to the forthcoming Drupal 8.0 release. This release fixes security vulnerabilities. Sites are urged to upgrade immediately.
The release notes are as follows:
* SA-CORE-2012-003 - Drupal core - Arbitrary PHP code execution and Information disclosure
No other fixes are included.
Over the last couple of weeks I have been looking into how I can ensure my existing Drupal 6 and 7 sites display it's content in a mobile friendly way. There are currently many ways of achieving this and the Drupal community as a whole are still working on many different projects and of course I imagine when the forth coming Drupal 8 series is released mobile will be at the very heart of the new Drupal core.
On the 1st August 2012 Drupal has released their latest update to the Drupal 7 Series from 7.14 to 7.15.
