Watch it, you! Coming on here with your commonsensical words. Pfft!

Of course not. Just another attempt to stir up discord where none exists.  As part of its role in managing the many aspects of the festival, the Committee routinely keeps the squads informed of proce

We don’t recognise sectarianism up here, let’s leave it that way. Up here we thinks it’s only a game of football.

I agree it was a great UHA this year! There's always something good about bad weather being forecast but the worst of it holding off for the procession.

 

The streaming seemed to work better for the folk I've spoken to who watched it. I'd imagine that's down to generally better infrastructure in Shetland. Anybody from outside Shetland have any experience of the stream?

I came a cropper this year was the traffic in the morning though. It was probably my own fault for not planning ahead but I had a terrible time trying to get around town. I managed to avoid the closed areas between the Legion and Bressay Ferry but the diverted routes were often reduced to single track roads with the amount of cars parked on-route, particularly Burgh Road. I'll know for next year!

I tried to watch the live streaming and had little luck. Last year I got a bit of buffering whilst this year it was so bad it was unwatchable. The junior procession ran without problem with no buffering, obviously less people watching it.

 

Checked speed at teatime was getting the usual 6.0 download speed, but when I checked it during the senior procession it had dropped to 0.2 so it's no wonder it was struggling. After the procession it quickly came back up to 5.5

 

I'm not far from my exchange, but it seems the system was struggling.

 

Pity 60 North didn't put it on YouTube, so that you could watch it later or the next day.

 

Congrats to 60 North and all the crew for beaming this around the world, but from me, no points to BT for the state of broadband. It's ironic that this could be clearly seen at the other side of the world, but not 10 miles away from the action.

So this is a celebration of our viking heritage?

 

Part of this seems to be an annual visit to New York to celebrate our ties with Scotland, and now we

have a fanatical football fan as jarl painting his galley in Celtic colours.

 

What next? The jarl squad dressed up in a Rangers strip setting fire to a Celtic galley with an effigy

of the previous jarl nailed to the mast?

 

FFS!

Wonder why he's putting Celtic forward when approximately 74% of their supporters are Catholic?

 

Wonder how many Catholics there are around here?
