If Virginia didn't want to host it, we could also use wordpress.com

This is not good news. We have been relying on the SourceForge Wordpress blog to
feed the newsfeed used on the home page of tei-c.org. It's a clunky mechanism,
but it's what we have at the moment.
In principle, it shouldn't be difficult to migrate the WordPress content to a
different platform and continue that procedure, only it would mean (1) coming up
with an appropriate host, (2) doing the migration, (3) creating new WordPress
user accounts with appropriate permissions, (4) rewriting James's newsfeed
grabbing code to use the new site. It doesn't help matters that the SF WordPress
area (http://sourceforge.net/apps/wordpress/tei/) has been offline more often
than not lately.
It might almost be simpler to go back to hand-editing the page at
http://www.tei-c.org/News/ (via OpenCMS), and then making the home-page sidebar
static and updating links there manually.
