I don’t want to get into the entire IRMA vs Eircom and IRMA vs ISPs debacle. The only reason I’m even writing this is because I’m getting a bit tired of all the “quotes” of “quotes” and other unclear and misleading things that people have been saying about ISPs over the last few weeks. To […]
One of our clients was asking me yesterday if we had any “hosted by” or “hosting powered by” type images that they could use on their site. We do, but for some stupid reason they aren’t on our website at the moment.. I’ll see if I can rectify that, but in the meantime here are […]

We really like shiny objects chez Blacknight. Some “shiny objects” are useful, whereas others just look nice. Well the latest one we got was from Microsoft, as we are now a certified partner: We’re hoping to upgrade our certification level with Microsoft in the coming months when a couple of more technical staff complete a […]
Our logo is a horse’s head. You’ll see it in various formats on all our websites, business cards, headed paper, adverts and everthing else.. Now we’ve been sent not one, not two but four horse’s heads in our logo’s style, but made of polystyrene foam (big thanks to MadeInHollywood) Now let’s be honest, they are […]
