I think that it's current and recent; when the star is flashing, it means current. There really isn't a lot of documentation on the host website.
Try to add yourself to the Frappr Map on the front page and let me know how you make out.
There's a new maritime news website that's pretty cool called gCaptain Discoverer. It's like Digg.com in that users submit stories and then the community votes on them. Since it's new, they are running a contest with some great prizes including the grand prize being an iPhone. Last week I won an iPod Shuffle and I have been in the running for the iPhone until yesterday. The website was letting people vote without registering but they changed that today. I'm currently 10 votes behind. If you vote for me and I win, I'll call you on my new iPhone. ;-) Check it out, submit stories and vote (for me!). It's a cool website.
Indeed, Peter has taken a wonderful idea into a magnificent reality in the creation of this site. When I first stumbled upon it, I was filled with memories of my time at Tabor - especially those of time on the water. I don't know if at the time I appreciated the rare opportunity and unique privilege beyond simply being in a group of people engaged in extraordinary fun, but I now know just how powerful an experience that was in shaping who I have become both as a person and a sailor. I look forward to sharing more as well as hearing about others' experiences and recollections.
It was kind of fun digging through the old albums which were covered in dust. I have more; are we limited to 8 shots per page?
P.S. I'll be in Newport the first week of May. I'll give you a yell.
