>My city council is creating a site for our small community in MN. On the site we need to offer a bulletin board. We are building the site on a very limited budget. None of the local providers allow cgi scripting. Is there a way to do it without or must we find a web host that does?

My provider is SimpleNet (http://www.simplenet.com). For $25/month, they offer unlimited space and transfer. They also allow MIVA scripts and provide some templates for creating message boards and E-mail forms. See:

I'm pretty happy with SimpleNet. Their stat reporting is a little weak however. Good luck!
