I hate doing things externally.  I prefer that internal docs be 
internal.  Especially if the doc is "what to do when the internet 
connection goes down"(I know the doc could also be what to do when the 
wiki server goes down). 

Also everyone already has an internal login and password why make them 
create and remember a second one.  I finally got them off of icq......
