News and Announcements
If your web site started behaving strangely on January 29, you should check for missing or outdated files (a spate of internet vandalism overwrote a bunch of stuff and we had to restore those files from backups) and compatibility problems that might be caused by a system software upgrade.

Fans of the popular Nelson List mailing list service can now recieve the latest updates to their web-browser or portable device using the Nelson List's new RSS Feed.

Spring cleaning has begun - we've updated the SquirrelMail web-mail system, upgraded the spam filter and email system, and done a bit of minor housekeeping on the website. The server's so tidy, we barely recognize it!

If you own a business in the Kootenays and would like to host a public access internet station (with all costs—including internet connection fees—covered by KICS) please send us a message through our Support Ticket System. We will contact you and provide you with a copy of our Public Access Internet Station Agreement for your consideration.

KICS is currently supporting not-for-profit wireless internet initiatives in rural communities around the Western Kootenays through monetary donations and by providing network administration assistance and training. One such project is Kaslo infoNet, a community access wireless network for Kaslo and its neighbouring communities.

For over 10 years, KICS has been working to help individuals, businesses, and organizations get online and realize the enormous benefits that the internet offers. Consider supporting KICS by volunteering, purchasing a Membership, or making a cash donation through Paypal.
