The passing of local blogs

August 2, 2012 · Filed Under Internet, Moray 

I’ve noticed a few local blogs I’d followed disappearing over recent months, which has been a shame. – Caravan 109 was always a pleasant read, but alas no longer exists, and the record only starts from the beginning of 2011: Caravan 109 on – Newsbleat’s “Wild and woolly opinion from the Scottish Highlands” […]

Faster broadband: but not Superfast

February 3, 2012 · Filed Under Internet, Nairn 

I’ve noticed a lot of BT Openreach vans parked around town over the past month, which might have heralded the arrival of superfast broadband, as reported last summer when Nairn made the list of FTTC exchange upgrades. However, after calling BT, it appears that this isn’t BT’s Infinity broadband offering, which can deliver up to […]

More BT broadband problems

November 3, 2010 · Filed Under Internet 

Looks like the Edinburgh exchange failed for BT again, taking out a lot of the internet services across the highlands: BT broadband connection problems continue Customers of ISP’s who use BT lines would also have been impacted, on top of BT’s own. This echoes problems BT reported with its exchange on Saturday evening, with parts […]

Certainly something to look forward to – but a request to the Newsbleat owner – could you try and move to a blogging platform where we can […]

Newsbleat – back to life

February 9, 2010 · Filed Under Internet 

Well, we were left hanging for months as Newsbleat stopped blogging, but good to see it back in action after a winter hiatus. Observant, cutting, dry, and light, it’s a good to see it returning to the local blogosphere. News Bleat (Now if we can only get it to move over to a platform with […]

Keeping busy!

October 20, 2009 · Filed Under Internet 

Apologies for not keeping My Nairn updated over the past month or so. Running your own business through the biggest ever recession is not fun, and I’m currently having to work a lot harder for less money coming in, in order to ensure the business keeps running properly and is not endangered by the existing […]

Gurn from Nurn: One of the most powerful blogspot blogs!

August 2, 2009 · Filed Under Internet 

While doing a little surfing this evening, I found a mention a few months back from a brand monitoring group that lists the top 100 blogspot blogs that they monitor – and the Gurn from Nurn was on the list! Most often clipped bloggers While the Gurn’s presence at no.93 may seem low, it’s nice […]
