I can't volunteer for that because whenever I volunteer to run a website
for a limited time I end up doing so in perpetuity, and I feel bad about
stopping. However, I can donate a paid virtual server for SOMEONE ELSE
to administer on their own. This is the one that Best Bits is using now.
It's paid up for about 5 years.

Also, as one of the original co-founders of Best Bits I do support the
merger, and your (Ian's) suggestion still seems to be the best one on
the table. There are previous Steering Committee members of Best Bits
who aren't as happy about it, but I don't think that a good alternative
has been put forward yet.
