Happy New Year from Beaver Island News on the 'Net!

The first three hour broadcast of recorded video took place on Beaver Island TV last night. Eighteen unique IP addresses viewed the broadcast of Stanley Floyd identifying post cards, the Cold Last Day of 2017, a little of the 2nd Annual Christmas Cantata, and the Jerry LaFreniere Roast. The equipment worked well after quite a long experimentation using different connections and different programs. This may not seem unusual to those who watch the satellite channels or any of several different video streaming services, but News on the 'Net wanted to give this a try, and it worked well.

So, there are several other ways to provide parts of the Beaver Island life. The live stream of Mass from Holy Cross took place yesterday morning as well.

The BINN website had surpassed expectations this month, and had amazingly used up the bandwidth limits imposed by the hosting server site. So, for a short period of time yesterday, no viewing of Beaver Island News on the 'Net was possible.

After negotiating an upgrade in bandwidth, the limitation was lifted and the bandwidth was doubled. The growth is quite beyond expectation on both websites; BI News on the 'Net and Beaver Island TV, and the possibilities are endless as we move into 2018.

We also re-discovered the Beaver Island Virtual Tour website that was created by Phyllis Moore and hosted by Island Design. Thanks to Jeff Cashman for keeping this available!

It was last updated in 2011, but there are items in the tour that no longer exist in their current locations or at all. Check it out at:

Happy New Year!
