Hi Dave,

The new web site has been in prototype for a while.  Steve Tekell and I 
just replaced the SEEK site an hour or two ago with the new wiki-based 
site.  We were going to let it run over the weekend, then Steve was 
going to send an email on Monday to everyone in SEEK explaining the new 
site and how to login and edit things.  So its hot off the press.  But 
feel free to give it a try.  Editing is pretty simple, although the 
syntax is slightly different than the site you put up earlier.  Logging 
in is controlled through our LDAP system, so the same user accounts that 
will eventually be used in the EcoGrid will be used here to log in to 
the site.  See this page for more information:
