I have not read Hagan's page yet - in part because I wanted to be 
able to get my thoughts down before being contaminated by a better idea. ;-)

I have created a page at 
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/WikiFarmsNeil which expunges the 
dreaded "field" word, using the term wiki instead. It is, I think, a 
description of the absolute minimum you need to do in order to start 
farming. As such, it does not have side notes about security, nor 
does it present many options.

Sorry, it is also barn-free.

It is now 1:30 AM local time, so I am off ....
