KimberlyJust wanted to thank Austin Mullin of the Harbour Island All Age School, who has already volunteered his crafts class to built the much-needed monitor shelves at the computer center ... you're the best. Erin ga bragh, indeed!

KimberlySpeaking of the computer centers, uber volunteers Don Savage, Kayla Davis, Letario Higgs, Nicholas Johnson, Warwick Watson and Karen Malcolm have come up with the following shopping list for anyone heading down anytime soon:

Here is what we do need as of today:

1) More optical mice.

2) A few more earphones, with long cords. We have to keep reminding the kids to hold down the volume.

3) Monitor shelves. Tthe combination of the Dell monitor and Microsoft keyboard stick over the edge of the tables about four inches. The "monitor shelf with pullout keyboard holder" seems to solve the problem.

Thanks for any assistance that you can offer!

Fig Tree News TeamThis week's Punch:

The not-for-profit Briland Modem Fund was launched in September 1999 to coordinate hurricane relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Floyd, in tandem with the community portal online. The Fund now aids in the fundraising and promotion of various educational and business development community projects, and manages a growing network of community computer centers throughout Eleuthera, Harbour Island and the Southern Bahamas.

The Fund's community computer center sponsors include the various central administrators and local government councils within the communities served; IBM Nassau for training; Amoury Nassau for periodic technical support; Royal Bank of Canada for offering competitive loans to locals so that they can purchase their own computers; Rotary Club East Nassau for the ongoing donation of almost-new Pentium computers courtesy of their extensive international network; and the newest sponsor, Kelly Hardware, for gently-used office equipment and printers. Executive Briland Modem Fund board members include Glenroy Aranha of Aranha Contractors, local resident and former hotel owner Sharon King, and expatriate homeowner Richard Haskell of Dunmore Cottage.
