Domain madness?
Things are happening the world of domain names.

First of all, a group called dotSCO have been pushing the idea of Scottish domain names and recently our very own SNP endorsed the idea. Not surprisingly, Alex Salmond fancies a top level domain (TLD) like .sco or .scot rather than something within .uk (like sco.uk).

Then there is the .tel domains who want to be the "the web's phone book", with the idea that each domain contains individual or company contact details. Sounds like another target for the spammers!

  • Gullane's Old Clubhouse use Blot CMS
  • Clinking glasses, warm hospitality and great food, along with the vista of the rolling golf links of Gullane in East Lothian.

    It's the Old Clubhouse bar and restaurant in Gullane, a great place to relax and enjoy drinks, good and great company.

    The Old Clubhouse have just started using the Blot Content Management system to keep their website up to date. Now with a few clicks they can make sure the menus are up to date, special events are showcased and add to the fantastic pictures in the gallery.
