[ale] [semi-OT] Looking for a CMS...

One that I've never worked with personally, but have heard the people at 
my office that do public message board stuff rave about it jive. Its 
java based and not cheap though. (jivesoftware.com).

Another one I see used everywhere that has a good rep is vBulletin, 
which is PHP based, and also not free (but a lot cheaper than jive). 

One free as in beer option is YABB (Yet Another Bulletin Board) 

I believe all 3 can satisfy your requirments. There are many open source 
attempts at this out there, to varying degrees of success.
