Hi, I am perhaps too late in responding to your inquiry but never-the-less I figured I might as well reply. You can look at samkoma.com (their link is dead, so you'll need to look it up on your search engine to access it)
and go onto "Chat" and "Icelandic Bulletin Board";
which is run by the Icelandic Embassy in D.C.
It is very good and their are many from all over the world
(including Iceland) that know so much if you ask any question there is someone bound to answer you and help you out. Just on a side note: have you ever been to Iceland? One word of warning - if you are a foreigner you cannot get a job in Iceland unless the employer cannot find a local to do the job; which is rare. You also must send or e-mail an employer about a job because you will not be offered a job if you are staying/residing in Iceland. You must have a job (work permit, etc.) before they will let you into the country. To become a citizen takes 7 years (I think). If you marry an Icelander, it takes 3 years to become a citizen. Taxes are very high as well, so make sure you have some $$ saved. Good luck!
