pmachine .vs. wordpress

so remember that i said i was working on in that post? well, i'm still working on it, and basically it's an extension of that column i used to write for called blackthoughtware. what's up there on my new domain now was my original proposal for that column.

anyway, in using the free version of pMachine, i'm having problems with my templates adapting to my style sheets. thus, why the entire site is not black the way i intended it to be.

what i might do in the interim, while trying to figure it all out, is swap out pmachine for wordpress - get that installed and running so i can play around with it a bit. if anyone has any comments on either system, please let me know. my other options, that i can autoinstall from my host, lunarpages includes these blog tools: Nucleus (2.0), pMachine Free (2.3) , WordPress (1.0.1) or these CMS: Geeklog (1.3.9) , Mambo Open Source (4.5(1.0.5)), PHP-Nuke (7.1), phpWCMS (1.1-RC2), phpWebSite (0.9.3-2 english), Post-Nuke (, Siteframe (3.1.2).

now i use postnuke with that full time job of mine, and i'd have to say that most of these CMS with their add ons, modules, and themes are a bit much for what i want to accomplish with and sure i could just use MT 3, but i won't. for one, the blog tools i previously mentioned can be auto installed from my host, which makes life oh so simple. and besides, i want to be as well versed in as many CMS as i possibly can. so the question is, again, should i go wordpress or should i go pmachine? anyone with any insight on this, please holla' at ya' girl.
