Newsflash Gets A New Name

New name, same great content

We previously had Newsflashes in the top right hand box of this site.  In our ever-increasing attempt to improve this site and make it more useful to you, we are renaming this to Fast Facts.  As we are out researching we will fill this area with facts about the islands, the people, and the culture.

When you view a new page within the site, this area will have a random fact posted in that area.  We have found some interesting things already but as you use the site let your eye wander over and see what’s new.

Source of information

We also will begin adding, as a link, the source of the information, if it is found on the web.  The button will be called “source.”  Clicking on “source” will take you to the site where the information was from.  

If you want them all, they are available for registered users.  Registration is free and takes only a moment.  Registration also allows you to post to our new forums.  Registered users will see a link called fast facts that will allow them to view each fact and not have to wait for them to randomly load.

Other site news

We have added another feature to our site.  Some of you may have noticed under our polls the addition of System Info.  This fun little widget tells you a few fun facts like:
  • Your IP address
  • Your Operating System
  • What Browser you are using
  • Etc.

There is no real reason for it, other than for fun.  Maybe someday you’ll want to host a website from you computer and need to know your IP address.  All you’ll have to do is visit our site and “Whoomp, there it is!”
