site was created 7 years ago as an online method for sharing photos
of Clarke Island with family and friends. It was just a simple Notes/Domino database of pictures but it
an issue through numerous hardware and software upgrades and even
the move to Nova Scotia.
Several people have asked about the origins of the word yNyS,
expecting it is perhaps be an acronym for something profound.
Actually, ynys is the Welsh p-celtic word for Island (in Irish/Scots
gaelic the word is inis or innis). Despite its meaning, it had great
appeal because it was one of the few 4-letter domain names available
at the time.
Today the site is a conglomeration of our personal and business
ventures. The old site is still available as Clarke
Island Pictures. There is also a dock-cam with views of
the water as well as links to Maggie's blog/journal and other local
sites. As always, the site runs on a domino server .
