With recent developments in Iceland the Volcanocafe audience has increased tremendously. We are very grateful for this, but we have noticed that new readers sometimes can’t follow properly as discussions among oldies that can be technically quite demanding (we have after all been talking here for several years now). Here we have therefore collected a list of posts with basic information for new readers.
So if you are a new reader, please, read these posts – this way you will be able to follow our discusisons with much more ease (and we hope, satisfaction in learning new things).
