All the 165+ web files of Bermuda Online (BOL) are authored, written and updated solely by Bermudian-British author and BOL Editor Keith Archibald Forbes (pictured, top). Email him at email@example.com showing BOL as your subject. (It was a different email address until recently but the volume of junk mail became so bad a change became necessary). With his wife Lois also disabled and Bermudian, he is a Member of the Society of Authors, see http://www.societyofauthors.org. He began Bermuda Online (BOL) in 1990. It was purchased in 1991 from Keith by The Royal Gazette daily newspaper in Bermuda. BOL is still the only major website about Bermuda with everything done in-house including website administration and web-mastering.
Keith is a former member of Bermuda's Broadcasting Commission, Consumer Affairs Board, Board of Education, Junior Chamber International, Reserve Constabulary, Bermuda Regiment, Kiwanis and more. He administers, maintains, updates and web-masters BOL files and replying promptly to relevant emails. BOL has grown hugely. (On October 1, 2005 BOL's size was 35.4 MB. But on April1, 2020, under the same author for the last 28 years, BOL's size is more than 10 times bigger, at 368 MB, now comprising 3,381 items including more then 165 sub-sites on unique aspects of Bermuda, copyrighted photos and graphics - and still growing).
Bermuda Online (BOL), published independently from 1990, was acquired by The Royal Gazette Ltd (RG) in 1992 from the above author (who still produces and publishes it on behalf of the RG on a very modest monthly salary on his own (not subsidized) computer equipment). Due to Covid 19 there has been no monthly owner-funding since February 2020 which has led to the suspension of some information but with the website still being maintained at the author's cost including cost of internet service and equipment for the time being but not for long, in hope this cost and service will be recovered. The RG is Bermuda's only daily newspaper. BOL provides numerous web files on Bermuda of the type not covered on the RG's website. The RG is independent of any political party and is the principal (more than 85%) independent and impartial source of all offline and online news about Bermuda. The RG, Bermuda Business Directory, Island Press, Bermuda.com and more are owned by Bermuda Press (Holdings) Ltd (BPHL), of 13 Addendum Lane, Pembroke HM 07, Bermuda. Jonathan Howes is the CEO of BPHL.
