Evening note

I've done a wee run round the new blogs this evening - for reference, I am posting under my Google name ADB. If you look at my profile, you'll see about 14 blogs or so, but Atlantic Lines is for the moment my primary blog. Tropical Cyclones is full of hurricane information. The other blogs are static, in fact, they could best be classified as websites.

Over the next 6 days, I shall try to get Internet access where possible whilst in Orkney.

I'm returning to Stornoway on October 8th.


I only "follow" those blogs that are private. I follow public blogs through Google Reader, so please don't be surprised NOT to find me in your followers list, in spite of the fact that I'm commenting.

I've also decided to completely revamp my sidebar - in other words, it's bare bones at the moment. I'll add to it as time goes on, and as graphics reach me.

MSN group

A group has been set up on MSN for J-landers. You need a Hotmail / MSN username & password to join it. You can change the email address.


I am pleased that my J-land 2 folder on Google Reader is filling up nicely with everybody's new URLs.

Ken (buckoclown) is suggesting we drop the J-land name. Let's not have too many changes all at once - this move is proving traumatic enough, and I'm not looking to the heartache that's bound to occur on and after November 1st, when people discover their blogs have disappeared.

The J-land Hub, the Magic Smoke on Blogger, will come to life in the next couple of days with more information on the transfer.

I'll be off Internet from October 3rd until (and including) October 8th, but will try to get internet access at some point. I'm travelling to Orkney tomorrow to photograph 700 wargraves in Kirkwall and Lyness. The weatherforecast is atrocious, so please think of me whilst I feed the fish in the Minch and the Pentland Firth.
