Turns out Google have decided to "change the way they support FTP publishing", which is to say they're going to stop supporting it. This means I have to migrate Eithin to a new platform - what they're suggesting is to use either a Blogger/Blogspot hosted one, or buy a special domain name for that-and-only-that.

Neither of which work for me; I have a perfectly good web host, with other things on it, and I actually quite like having code there. Since the web host provider gives me Fantastico for software, I can have Drupal, Mambo, Joomla, or Wordpress without any problems. I already have one Wordpress instance, for CIRW, so I'm not sure whether to go with that again (it's certainly better and easier to use than Blogger) or to migrate the currently-via-Blogger blog & a few standalone pages into a proper CMS which will then give me more of a platform to expand. Wordpress would be very well specified for what I'm currently doing, but I'm hesitant to either run two installations of it or deal with the hackery necessary to run two blogs from one.

I've never used any of the other three before, but I'm pretty good at this learning curve business. Obviously, I'm going to do some poking around, but since I have a fair few web geeks amongst my readers - do any of you have any opinions on these options, or suggestions of other things I haven't considered?
