Any system that allows for changing config, content or anything else has security problems. Building your own CMS (which is something I've been thinking of for a long time as soon as I get the time) will have the same if not more security problems than any FOSS CMS system. The only reason I'm consid...

What makes you think MySQL can't handle the growth? MySQL was built for millions of queries a second.

You may want to try gaim. It should come with the MSN module but you need to go into configuration and add it. Also, if you don't mind a console app, try LMME, it's surprisingly nice (I used it for the longest time when I had to SSH into my home box from the University).

It would only be so that if for some reason you wanted to change hosts it would be a lot easier (say you wanted to move it to your own server) than having to deal with the webhost to give you your domain rights.

I'm not sure what your referring to... I see all the source... yes, it's all spaced really funky, but all the source code is there.

There are ways of hiding your source that is 10 times better than that. I've seen pages completely encoded, and somehow decoded by the browser.
