If it should be something dynamic instead of static, could we at least
keep away from such a security nightmare hell of shit as wordpress is?

I personally use MovableType, which has way less of a record than WP -
and actually creates static pages for the readers. Its using dynamic foo
"just" when you enable comments, so as long as you dont you can have an
entirely static site, and have the dynamic part (editing of new stuff)
behind some extra http auth or so to keep it away from possible

(I don't care if its MT or an ikiwiki hat gets "better" comment support,
or something entirely different. But using something that is as bad as
WP, brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr)

<Maulkin> ie: are we getting a nice connection? :)
* gwolf silently reads Maulkin's question
<stone-head> netinstall over 56kbps modem
<stockholm> Maulkin: yes, they hope to have drums installed at the hotel
            by then so they can communicate with them at 20bit/s
<gwolf> stockholm: Make them _fast_ drums!
<stockholm> ok, 40bit/s
<gwolf> I still have to meet a drummer who can slap at 40hz
