  1. the best that i have found is xc weather, although windy is better for the wind
  2. the location and size usually dictates what spec of glass is used, the fact that your unit is toughened on the inside means that it it either in a door, adjacent to a door or has a cill that is less then 800mm from the floor, if it isnt you can just use normal 6mm laminate
  3. the building regs wont have any effect on the warranty of the windows, the building regs are only worried about u value, ventilation requirements, emergency escape requirements and location of safety glass etc. am i right in thinking that you purchased the windows from the supplier then got some one different to fit them? what make are the windows? for example nordan offer a 10 year warranty although with a massive list of exclusions, maybe you arent shouting loud enough and need to be more assertive that you are not just going to back down, although i think you will have a hard time proving the cause of the breakage.
  4. if you are talking about the swan net gundry shed then it has nothing to do with salmon nets, they make and repair pelagic nets aswell as stock rope and various other trawler hardware, i wonder if this is what has been referred to numerous times as the "net washing facility"
  5. Are sure it's not the gut factory, Shetland Catch or the various other fish processors in the area? I worked at the Marina Business Park for a couple of years and I was never aware of any smell around there. i was wondering where exactly this net washing plant is, i thought the only one was in scalloway
  6. it looked like a very amateur production, i was expecting to see more about how the boat works, maybe show a bit about the engine room, the galley or even show it from a day in the life perspective.
  7. i treat it as a road as that is what it is, it is not a zebra crossing so i dont treat it as such, the guy giving you the finger is probably just having a bad day
  8. just seems strange to me especially as she should have been told to keep the dog away, perhaps he was asking her to keep her dog away, so the guy should lose his job because he doesnt like dogs?
  9. she should have been asked when setting up the appointment whether or not there were any dogs in the house as well as whether there are any parking restrictions, is the meter accessible etc i presume that she told them that she did have a dog so it seems strange to me that she would answer the door with it in her arms. iv recently had a meter changed and i was told that dogs should be locked in another room and had no problems with the meter man despite his english not being perfect
  10. so you would happily move the fisheries college from scalloway to the toon, will this not have a negative impact on scalloway? or does that not matter? as for the video conferencing, it would be easy to set it up any where with an internet connection
  11. if you are talking about the sullom voe power station, it already supplies about 40% of the grid and could power all of shetland with some upgrades and an upgrade to the local grid
  12. think i will just leave this here https://bbc.co.uk/news/business-44905576
  13. a few dozen vikings with axes, maybe they are planning to put them to use
  14. i would say that if you get work and leave a good job and dont take the piss you will get more work than you can manage, on the other hand if you leave a bad job it will not take long to get a bad name and word travels fast in shetland
  15. they should last 20+ years depending on the quality, it shouldnt be failing after 2 years, was it locally made? or was it ordered from south?
  16. pretty sure it comes from ollaberry canna mind the name o the loch
  17. wonder what the title deeds of both sound school and bells brae school say wouldnt put it past the council to make the old anderson site into a super primary and sell both other sites
  18. aaa22 it looked like a tight overtake but then you were following the orange car with a less than 2 second gap actually closer to 1 second than 2, as you have said you did not want to overtake you should have dropped back and left a bigger gap, if you had have done then the overtake by the golf wouldnt look so bad
  19. if its on wheels it will be able to be picked up with a truck with a tail lift, your best bet would be to phone shetland transport and ask for a quotation
  20. im sure you will enjoy your visit, one thing i would say is by no means take the views of the few that post on shetlink as an indication of shetland, shetlink seems to have quite a few "characters" that seem to want to argue/ post criticism over even the smallest of things
  21. why do you consider a new berth for northlink to be a priority?? it would be a complete pain/cost to get from nigg bay to aberdeen city centre as at the moment it is a 5 minute walk to the city centre and the bus and train station
  22. Seen more than a few of those "King's of the Road"... What used to irritate me more than a little were slow moving HGV's that would pull out of a junction ahead of me (when there wasn't really enough room) and then 'trundle' along up hill at a snail's pace. The junction at the foot of the Gremista hill is a bad place for that whichever direction you are travelling in.. All it takes is 10-20 seconds of patience on the drivers part... Made me wonder just how they got a licence.. yeh i agree all it takes is for you to be patient for 10-20 seconds being behind them then when you get to the three lanes you can happily overtake them, after all even if they are travelling at well below the limit up the hill you wont lose much time at all
  23. if it hasnt been used in quite some time there is a chance that a bird has made a nest in it/ its got blocked, when was the last time you had the chimney swept?
  24. i would assume that it will be in the same style as the rest of the clickamin, it would be stupid if it wasnt
  25. cana do that it will be to noisy for the cats at the gott cattery
