unlimited bandwidth, unlimited time, free, just image hosting to move all images off the server, and an ultra easy plugin, im busy working on gentoo, i cant be bothered with wordpress dev/management. =D the guy im helping out is a windows newbie and doesn't exactly get linux yet. i told him to start investing time in learning php.
im a wiki editor for gentoo, i wrote its wordpress wiki but i left all the plugin stuff out and really want out of this deal. my demarcation point was 1 install wordpress 2 allow upload/download images 3 allow themes with out ftp messages & 4 allow plugins installed. basically im being asked to dev wordpress when my aspirations of it were much much less than that.
so far ive been ok with wordpress, its really setup well with the plugin setup. far more easy to extend than phpbb or mediawiki. thanks for your responses... i am very serious about making gentoo and its derivatives understandable, user friendly etc... chromeos is portage thus my quest.
