It is easy to rotate the content of the pages if you don't use static
pages. Due to the distributed nature of our pages, this is out of the
question. The alternative is to have a person do the rotation manually
every few weeks.

Thomas, you seem to have some free time and some good ideas. Please
apply to become a developer so I can give you access to the web pages. 
This would speed the movement to the new format.
