A small block, which was designed to fit our needs.
We want to use the "My Home" page as default page after login, but The normal "site news" block was small and reached no attention by our users. I.e. sometimes important notes (e.g. shut-downs) where not read. The normal "site news" block isn't designed to placed in content area and will look ugly.
Because of that, we decided to print the site news in an own block. Maybe someone else will find that handy as well.
