Happy New Year!
We’ll post links to sites that have Friday (plus or minus a few days) photos of their chosen animals (photoshops at our discretion and humans only in supporting roles). Watch the Exception category for rocks, beer, coffee cups, and….?
Limited Edition Alert (12/28 14:55 MST) : The Ark crew is encamped high in the Northern Idaho mountains with no net access in our abode. There may be some opportunity Friday between 10-2 PST to do some boarding but I expect it will be Saturday night or Sunday before everyone gets on board.
Do link to the Ark every week!
You can find out how to board the Friday Ark at the Arkive page.

Note for Haloscan Users:
Over the past month or so Haloscan started (the end of July) handling of trackbacks has improved though it is still pretty broken for carnival type posts. Now, instead of rejecting every attempt to ping it accepts single pings for a while and then will start rejecting them. I will keep trying to track back to Haloscan boarders but can make no guarantees for any particular week.
Note for Typepad Users:
Typepad continues to behave similar to Haloscan for trackbacks. I been able to get trackbacks to most, if not all, Typepad based boarders. I have to do it one at a time and wait a while in between pings but Typepad does not go into semi-permanent rejection mode like Haloscan.
I and the Bird #39 is up at Natural Visions who notes:
And no holiday season would be complete without a visit from Sandy Claws, bringing us a whole sack full of gifts from our fellow birders
Opening the packages will be like a second christmas for you.
…a blank post will work.
Ok, it will work for PZ and seems to work for Atrios who must publish more empty posts than the rest of the blogosphere combined, but for the rest of us,….nah, don’t even go there.
On the side, it would make me happy if the Science blogging crew could make it so that trackbacks to their hosted blogs would work.
