TRISTAN TIMES: AT LAST, A DEDICATED SITE
By J. Brock (SARTMA-TdC)

TRISTAN TIMES now has a permanent online home with its very own domain name and distinctly Tristan feel. For a Tristan site, this will be unique once cost-effective communications equipment is installed on Tristan. Stories and snippets that are now posted externally should be, by then, posted from the Island itself. The new site address is: http://www.tristantimes.com.
This has been a long and good project that began in November 2000 when former Administer, Brian Baldwin encouraged it to go ahead. Along with James Glass, who provided the initial photographs, thanks goes to the Posts and Telecommunications Officer, Ian Lavarello, who is advising on what kind of equipment would be suitable for cost effective communications.
It’s now up to Tristanians living on St. Helena, the Falklands, or elsewhere overseas and others who have a love for the Island to help boost the content on the site. On the left hand navigation bar you will see where you can submit an article. News of birthdays, anniversaries, congratulations, as well as photos and the like will be most welcome. Items from Tristan will also be placed on the site as soon as they are received.

Unlike the content on the other sites, items on TRISTAN TIMES site will stay on longer so people can refer back to them. The oldest items will be archived for easy access as well. The content that now is on the page is gathered from the Falklands News site, . Certain items that pertain to Tristan and the Falklands will stay on that site.
Have a good read, everyone!
