16th anniversary of bajan.org

posted Dec 18, 2012, 9:32 AM by Amit Uttamchandani

According to Network Solutions, an Internet domain name registrar, bajan.org was registered on December the 19th, 1996.
 
That was 16 years ago. Almost an eternity in Internet time (if such a thing exists). This domain may not be one of the oldest on The Internet (missed it by about 10 or 11 years according to Wikipedia), but it is in Barbados. Throughout the years it has has provided, in one form or another, no-frills information on Barbados to visitors from all across The World.
 
Mind you, across the vastness of time, space and The Intertubes, you'll find dozens of sites on Barbados that are far more attractive and comprehensive. This is a good thing for the island (hopefully it will encourage people to visit and/or invest, etcetera...). But for me, as the owner and operator of the domain, I am content with providing just the basics as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
 
Happy anniversary bajan.org. Here's to another 16 more years on The Intertubes!

Tropical Storm Warning for Barbados UPDATE 2

2:23 AM. No significant change from my last post. Latest image and bulletin (6A) from NHC has the center of Ernesto passing north of Barbados. I live on the south of the island, so that may explain why I'm not seeing any storm-like conditions. Other than that, it's not every hurricane season that you get to see am NHC picture of Barbados with a storm hovering directly over it:
