  1. Hi Ray, just visit http://www.shetlandhistory.com, all my politics stuff is there
  2. Hi Shetlinkers, Many of us mourned the loss of Shetlopedia, and I was especially sad to see all my politics research disappear. However, I was able to recover a 400mb .txt file that contained every single page from Shetlopedia on it and have used that to rebuild the politics section that I had on the site. You can access it here: http://jarlmedia.com/Home I am of course ever interested to hear from anyone with additional content to add, mistakes to highlight or pictures to supply. I'll probably come back with specific requests for fellow history buffs to help me identify! Cheers James PS if anyone wants to help rebuild Shetlopedia let me know. I'm not interested in doing it alone as it's a massive job!
  3. Can anyone beat me tonight? http://i.imgur.com/Cp9my.jpg - taken at 6pm. Utterly dire. I cannot bloody wait to get to London.
  4. The SNP have said at elections that if they got independence, Shetland/Orkney/WI would have a say on their own determination. Now they're kind of regretting that after Tavish made light of it. It wouldn't make sense for them to say no. "If Scotland can, why not Shetland? Why not Fife?". Saying no would be ridiculous, and saying Yes puts them in an awkward position. It's great.
  5. BT called said that they might finally be able to solve the problem I logged a while back, which is handy because: http://www.speedtest.net/result/2357890267.png But, to throw a spanner in the works, I just got a job in London so I'll be enjoying 60mb internet from January onwards...!
  6. Sounds more like a problem on your end. I've been able to book many things through Mareel/Shetland Box Office website with absolutely no problem. I haven't heard of anyone complaining about that.
  7. Which internet sites? The poll on here ("should mareel get the bailout cash") was not in favour. There are 19 comments on the story on the Shetland Times website so far today: 2 FOR 1 Neutral 16 AGAINST http://www.shetlandtimes.co.uk/2012/12/05/councillors-approve-600000-mareel-package Someone who is against something is more likely to make their feelings known. How many times do you EVER see positive comments on Shetlink or Shetland Times? Especially on here when people can be anonymous and moan about everything (while, of course, doing absolutely nothing beneficial to Shetland).
  8. If you take that stance, why don't the Shetland mainlanders refuse to pay for the ferries to Unst, Yell and Whalsay?
  9. BT Speedtester says 2.06mbps, but that only tells half the story. Taken at the same time: http://www.pingtest.net/result/72719853.png

  11. Having been a gig promoter over the years I can agree with 4533 about the lack of profit involved!
  12. Why not? It's a local group promoting their promotion, let them promote it to the hilt! Good luck lads
  13. Surprised your ping is so good for both.

  15. Speedtest @ 17:15: 6.83mbps, 48ms ping Speedtest @ 17:45: 1.57mbps, 517ms ping Speedtest @ 17:55: 0.93mbps, 456ms ping Sigh. And the predictable decline continues.
  16. http://www.speedtest.net/result/2306002847.png Getting worse! This is comedy.
  17. http://www.speedtest.net/result/2305976261.png Sigh. After my aforementioned dealings with BT I was told I would be phoned back today after sending them my results. Phone hasn't made a peep.
  18. http://www.speedtest.net/result/2305607191.png
  19. I eventually contacted BT after a series of terrible speeds. They told me to take speed tests at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm tonight to prove that I have bad results. But of bloody course, the internet has been fine tonight. The first night in absolutely forever. I am so annoying.
  20. Reddit's BuildAPC has a wealth of knowledge about building powerful computers, and it's free.
  21. It's pretty much the reason I haven't bought Halo 4. Yet.
  22. http://www.speedtest.net/result/2292745897.png I remember in London I used to get 60mbps which would equate to about 2mbps download. I remember a 338mb iPlayer download was done ultra-quick. It was amazing. Now this.
