Sure but we will want a URL that is easy in the long run anyway.

is a good domain that is available. :) Would be fun, but maybe not so nice :)

I talked to Stein about it. He meant that eZ was shooting a spurrow  
with a cannon, and I agree. I tried installing eZ on but  
for some reason I keep getting a bug that should have been solved  
months ago. Php 5.0 is not supported.
Considering that we could get away with only having the News part of  
the site under a easy CMS, maybe that is the way we should go. One  
could even use Blogger (supports FTP) and do the design in css and  
autoformat it (just an example of how simple it could be done).
I have not searched freshmeat or sf for a small system, but I am  
guessing a dime a dozen.

Sure. So alternative number 2 could work.
