Yeah, we could. It's a bit of a pain at school to upload anything though,
mind where there's a will there's a way. I love SSH Tunnels.

I can't make it to Thursday meetings so Pascal - let me know the outcome. I
love the idea though.

One could always go for something like Joomla if a non-blog-type CMS was
needed. I'm not fussed on Drupal personally, I see Joomla being so much more

Throw on a wordpress blog -> 10 minutes of editing and finding a nice
theme -> add some quick content for an about page, a contact page and a
map page for how to find us (copy most of the stuff from the current
clug page) -> add entries for each month's get-together and perhaps
entries for results of a month (ie. install-fest photos, SFD
photos, ...).

= nice site people will look for information concerning FLOSS here in

Overall work = less than 3 hours.

I'm willing to do it over the next weekend if someone can do the
background stuff (set up the wordpress install, mysql database, point
domain name to Tarrant's server, ...).

What do you think Tarrant? We could do this during a few frees even at
college. :)
