I have an awesome hosting account with www.Dreamhost.com. Sure it's American
but you can't go wrong with a terabyte of data transfer a month, 20 gigs of
HDD space - up to about 75 actual SSH accounts, unlimited domains - and yeah
I'll stop before I sound like I'm plugging it as I'm not. 

My real point is - it has ruby, php, mysql, all this lovely support,
especially considering you can run things from an SSH terminal. 

I'm happy to do some hosting for people if they like. Might as well make the
most of the account. Goes for the CLUG website too. I host my site & blog
plus a few others on it.

FWIW: I designed the plug.org.au site a couple of years ago so that it
uses static HTML.  (At the time our web server was an xbox and so
anything CPU intensive was out of the question.)  To keep a consistent
look we're using wml to generate the html files.  From my perspective,
though, the most important advance over the previous web site we had is
the prominent "Next event" heading at the bottom.  I note that
slug.org.au has something similar; from memory the PLUG site was
modelled on the SLUG site at the time.

CLUG could have something similar.  You'd just have to remember to
update the site when sending out the announcement e-mails.  (This could
probably be automated, although we haven't bothered to do that for
