Hi Mike

The priority today is not future events, but tomorrow's event.

We need the workflow to be tested - has a sample article been sent to
concursorapceibal.info for example?

The site text & graphics need to be improved - best is to inspire from
PDF "Cronista de la Vuelta Ciclista"'. Do Sebastian and Gabriel have

Do you know if we will have stats? This was one of the reasons we had
originally agreed on Wordpress hosting.

The press release goes out on the wire tomorrow morning.

I was under the impression from last weekend's meeting that this was what you guys wanted, and was ready to make it until I realized our current free .com setup wouldn't support it. But it sounds like it's a moot point for the bike race site; should JT and I go ahead and put up a new wordpress.org on the Sugar site and get cracking on a microsite theme/template for it, so we'll be ready for future events?
