Since I spent all day yesterday with podcasters and surrounded by podcasts, audio equipment etc., etc., I’ve been thinking about what we as a company should be doing. Should we do a podcast? Is there any point? Would we gain anything? Would we lose anything? Is it a waste of time? Should we do it […]
PodCamp Ireland was fantastic. The organisers did a fantastic job and I hope everyone had as much fun as I did. They even managed to bamboozle me into joining a panel!
A couple of us have headed over to Kilkenny for the day to attend PodCampIreland. If you’re in the area drop into the Ormonde Hotel
As it’s a Friday evening I thought I’d have a quick look at the spam filtering stats to see what’s been going on. I haven’t looked at ALL the figures yet, but just to give you a flavour of what’s going on… One of our filtering nodes was sent 372,460 emails yesterday. It rejected 88% […]
Eurid, which is the registry in charge of the .eu domain, contacted all their registrars, including us, earlier today to announce a major change to the way they handle DNS updates. At present .eu DNS servers update 5 times a day. From 12 on October 9th the DNS will move to dynamic updates ie. changes […]
Ireland’s first major podcasting event takes place this Saturday in the Ormonde Hotel, Kilkenny. The event kicks off at 10am and promises to be an interesting day if the list of expected attendees is anything to go by. As it’s only “over the road” from us I plan on attending, as I’m still feeling guilty […]
If you want to get your personal IE domain then remember we’ll be taking pre-orders up until the “go live” date. Unfortunately there seems to be some confusion about which domains are allowed and which ones aren’t. To start with, as is indicated on the order form, to pre-order personal IE domains you need to […]
Voting has now opened in the 2007 Irish Internet Association Net Visionary Awards. I’ve been nominated under both Internet Entrepreneur and the Online Trader categories, so any and all votes would be appreciated! There’s also quite a few other names on the list that are familiar to us here at Blacknight. They belong to friends, […]
Unfortunately I didn’t make it to BarCamp Galway, as we’re doing a major deployment this weekend (remember those photos? Multiply the pile of servers by a factor of 3!) I’m hoping that some of us will make it to Kilkenny for PodCamp instead!
We’re a hosting company. Like most hosting companies we have several hosting plans (products) These plans have names. Like everyone else the names we’ve been using are boring: basic; standard; professional I want to change them. I want something new. I want something that’s a bit more imaginative, but I’ve no idea what!!! Options on […]
While I may have a love-hate relationship with servers I simply dislike faxes and fax machines. I can’t get excited by them and simply consider them to be a waste of space and money. Yes – we still have one in the office, but I’ve stopped using it for inbound faxes. We had an issue […]
Personal IE domains will be available from October 31st 2007. Basically if you want to register yourname.ie you will be able to do so after October 31st. Since we expect that there will be a high demand for these domains we have put in place a queuing mechanism. How will this work? Our development team […]
