I've been tied up the whole day on the technical aspects of the site, I haven't really been following the news. Did anything important happen? A summary, please?

OK, I'll step in with a very brief summary from what I can remember, though I warn you my brain is exhausted and this morning seems a long time ago:

  1. We got some fairly favourable media coverage online and on TV, with more planned tomorrow.
  2. Not that much happened really in terms of real developments in the KSFIOM situation directly, but it seems clear there is a lot of overrall activity in terms of calming the UK and European banking system. The hope is that somewhere amongst all that KSFIOM interests are being taken care of.
  3. There appear to be IMF and other efforts to refinance Iceland itself, which we hope may have a knock-on effect to the UK side of things, and in turn to the IOM side of things.
  4. Norway Govt took control of Kaupthing's Norwegian subsidiary, but that doesn't help us directly.
  5. The forums improved immeasurably.

Thanks!

Were there any references to K IOM savers' plight ?
If yes, were they accurate or helpful or encouraging ?
Many Thanks

Monday is here and lets hope we end this whit some good news.

A big thank you for all of you who put so much work in this site and raising our profile and press coverage in the press.

It is very useful to have a daily summary in all the turmoil of information and discussions on our site.

                                                                  Thx for that.

Thanks for that, occams

I entirely understand the exhausted brain issue so won't hold you responsible :) that was perfect. I'm going to bed now, nearly 2am here. I'll be back tomorrow but have to work too so won't be able to dedicate so much time as today.
