That's fine. But if anyone else wants to start a Wiki, the offer of a
machine stands. I would much rather try the resolve the problem of two
than to continue to have none. Frankly, I'd rather see effort go into
developing content that re-implementing free, existing Wiki code.

But I'm curious? Why does it need restricted access for writing? The
whole idea of a Wiki is that anyone can add and edit content. It works
for the Wikipedia. Why can't it work for Firebird?
