May 16 2010 is back!

Hello and welcome back to our website.

We know that over the past few months our website has stood on shaky ground. Slowdowns, random temporary down times and finally, the site being down altogether.

Well, we’ve given the site a heaving of loving care and now we’re very happy to put it back online. For good.

As you can see, it’s had a bit of a facelift. But more than that, we now have a few new features too. Try using the search box, for example.

Be sure to keep checking up our site, or subscribe to our rss feeds, because the struggle against the heavy industrialisation of Iceland and the destruction of its wilderness, alas, continues.
