Well after much laughter, one or two moments which bordered on almost 'total despair' and not a few 'curse' words - the long awaited website is here for all to see.
We hope you like it. It is not 'quite' finished, but sooner than make you wait any longer (and realizing that if she couldn't show it to you SOON, then Nuccia was likely to suffer an apoplectic fit), we relented and said something like "Oh for heavens sake - go on then!!!"
The team that has worked so VERY hard to arrive at this point was lead by 'the one' - 'the only'...NUCCIA! She was joined by our own Liz (Chanchis), Lori out there in Oregon and 'last but definitely NOT least' Bob Fornal who managed to correct not only the one ore two errors made by the (expensive) 'web designer' but also the ravages caused by our Nuccia's bouts of 'keyboard finger' (LOL). I have sat here in my distant eyrie unable to help for the simple reason that a professional dork like me could have caused CHAOS!
You should have been a fly on the wall (like I was) and heard the 'techie' conversations (interspersed with the odd anglo saxon expletive) that went on. Especially when the 'Boss Lady' realized that she had 'locked herself out of her own forum! That friends, was a priceless memory.....
But those moments of laughter were really needed to enable the tense moments to be defused and your 'New Gente di Mare" to be completed.
I have been a proud, though small, contributor to this moment, and I do hope that you will explore the new site, and all it has to offer, over the coming months. The final touches to the images should be completed shortly and then you will, we hope, be satisfied with the home that has been provided as a showcase for your skills and your research results!
