Hey Jos. Sorry for being so silent. Initially i wanted to push a first version 
online for the 1st, but then i got ill and was just... well, stuck. But now i 
am back and there is not much left. Anyway...

The new website will work exactly as the old one. You have some static php 
includes with the main text inside it. So anyway, whatever you want to write, 
it is just a question of writing it. ;)
That was the initial thought, don't change the workflow, just make it more 
pretty. Well, the "pretty" will come soon. But for you awesome promo writers, 
nothing will change.

Don't worry. I think i will get the time to go over the sides and have a look 
what really needs a rewrite. It's not that we need to edit each and every 
page. But i guess i can compile a list.
