Hi. You could take a look at our site, http://dtek.se . And I promise you, 
this is not an advertisement. I honestly think dtek.se might be useful for 
you, since we have a news system using WikiTrails. It's all in Swedish, but 
you should be able to figure it out from the front page and onwards 
using ?action=view . And you could use Google Translate if you want.
