Yet all of these (but scaling) could be subserved by a dynamic website. Static sites have drawbacks too:

- Hard to create feeds

- Search is left to google

- Mostly impossible to use for photoblogging and anything that requires mobile


Why would it be hard to create feeds? It's just a matter of adding a template and letting the static generator create an XML file from the same content.
