its amazing what a small world we live in. My parents are argentine (of italian and spanish descent) and my wifes are Istriani. I have been there 3 times and will be leaving in a week to go back. i can't tell you how many croats i meet who have had relatives immigrate to argentina many years ago. i am obviously family to them but there is another connection one that actually makes me feel a part of them and istria. I only wish the language was easier to understand, for now i'll continue speaking a mixture of english, spanish, italian and some sign language to get by. If you havent gone go, you wont be sorry,

Grazie, grazie. And if you are in a playful mood, you will find that the smiley collection has expanded.
Want more? yahoo!

However, let's get serious again. Do you think we need a few instructions on how to use this guestbook? asking

Sounds like a monumental task! Most guestbooks (on other sites) have very few instructions and people manage to post messages - do you really think that additional instructions are necessary?

Remember, we are a dispersed people in many different ways - linguistically, educationally, etc. Perhaps Bruno's suggestion for our website error pages are equally applicable here.

Great site. Istrians interested in the history of Istria can find at this site things they have never known about her. Go into the Main Menu and look around and check the topics you are interested in. A great source of information!

(7) Here a nice band of musicians.

Where is this band, and isn't the conductor or band leader an Istrian? Do tell us more!

This is the banda Bellini of Melbourne, keeping alive the musical traditions of the old world. Some odd istrian amongst them. The second from the extreme right is my pal Maestro Cavaliere Guido Bensi (ex Bencich?).

We did not want the checkerboard bulletin board (forums) look that most of the guestbooks use, including this one. It took a while to figure out how to customize this feature-rich guestbook, and to change its appearance to resemble our original Guestbook.

We made some compromises and left some features out. Please let us know if you would like a particular feature to be added, even more smilies. The feature[s] may already exist in the script, but which we have disabled.

Have you tested out any of the features? For example, clicking on an image (except the emoticons) enlarges it. Guido is particularly fond of that feature, as you can see. I am enjoying the anti-bot security and breathing a sigh of relief. Our old Guestbook became a nightmare and major burden to clean out the spam postings. It had reached 60-100 postings per day by the robots, and their frequency was incrementally rising. Thankfully, this guestbook has several layers of security and a whole array of administrative functions that we can customize.

How about sharing a nice picture of your precious 3-month-old twins with us here, one that you would like the whole world to see? You know, "caring is sharing"! wide smile

They are not incognito on Facebook. I hope no one starts confusing our Guestbook or Yahoo groups with groups on Facebook! roll eyes (sarcastic)

Marisa,
The guestbook looks good. Hope people will use it to express their sincere thoughts without trying to be obnoxious. There is so much information that this site can provide to interesting parties who would like to learn more about Istria, her people and her history.

No problem, we can delete improper entries or reply to them directly as you can see from our tests here.

Our original guestbook was a disaster of security flaws. We shall have to promote this new guestbook to our readers and hope that we can wake a few of them up to pass the word around - plus put their thoughts down. I am a jaded optimist, but ever hopeful...

Guido, I have to reinstall and configure this guestbook from scratch. I hope that I have learned a bit in the past few weeks about its many complexities so I can do better on customizing the guestbook on this second round. Stay tuned...

By the way, you can dramatically change the looks of the captcha to make it clearer, but then it would become more vulnerable.
Porka l'oka, I am trying to send a pic from my HD. Next time, then, perhaps.

Uffa! Still time expired, then posted too quickly.
They anti spam precautions, as captcha does not seem to be enough?
