How do people feel about dvlug.wordpress.com hosting the blog? I could
use some help setting it up. If you would like to help, just give me
your username on wordpress.com to begin. If you don't have one yet it
can be set up for free. Hosting on wordpress.com is what I do for
grantbow.wordpress.com and requires no software on
nearlyfreespeech.net. We can use the existing PHP capability at
dvlug.org to read in the feed and display it on the web page.

The demo "pages" I have written in HTML and PHP so far are at
http://dvlug.org/3.php which can be moved to wordpress.com pages.
