READ THIS ! [ Hold your mouse here ! It's about always getting the freshest news !
[ Automatic update every 30 seconds. ] To be able to stay in control on top of this website, you have to reload the page manually. On Chrome=Press [CTRL]+[F5]

If you don't force a new reload or update the following might happen to you! - When your computer see's that your are trying to download 20 raw datafiles that is connected to a certain webpage, it first looks if any of them already has been stored on your harddrive. It only looks at the name of all the included newsfiles, no check if it has updated or if it's filesize might have changed. It only look at the files name- so your computer might serve you old newsitem-tickerfiles earlier cached on your harddrive on your last visit. It does this to try save you bandwidth. So in this aspect- all webbrowsers are obsolete, since they don't even compare filesize, before making the decision for you, IF the file should be downloaded or not ! Why download fresh tickerfiles, "when you already have it on your harddrive".. To be frank, we might produce our own custom browserprogram and smartphone app to address this issue, Sir & Madame. - Anyone out there, who like to contribute some development funding to speed things up? With the intention and ambition of quality enhancement ? You know , this website has no advertisement ! So some development funding would be great.
