Friday Ark #117 - Power Outage Edition
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....?
We add boarders all day Friday plus intermittently on Saturday and Sunday so visit frequently.
Do link to the Ark every week!
You can find out how to board the Friday Ark at the Arkive page.
Power Alert (09:40 PST): Our power has been off since 8PM PST 12/14. I am temporarily at an alternate Boarding station about 50 miles away. I'll get caught up on updates over the next 1-2 hours and then that will be it until some time power comes back..
Update (11:15 PST): Sorry, no more updates until after power is back. All boarders will eventually get on!

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.Posted by Steve on December 15, 2006
