Friday Ark #48

Cats, Dogs, Spiders and ? every Friday.

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....?

Alert! Alert! We will not be able to post updates to The Ark during the day Friday, Saturday or Sunday. We will try to catch up in the evenings. Also, be aware that trackbacks to Modulator have been having some problems so make sure yours works. If not use one of the other methods mentioned below.

We will add your post to the list if you do one of the following:

  • Leave a comment or trackback to this post,
  • Use the Carnival Submission Form,
  • Email Modulator or
  • Our extensive staff finds it during our weekly search of the web
Of course, if our staff goes on strike then we will link only those posts someone tells us about.

Dog folks: remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Dogs hosted by Mickey's Musings.

Cat folks: remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Cats which goes up every Sunday and the 74th edition will be hosted this week by Running Scared.

Bird folks: Remember to submit your links to I and the Bird: A Blog Carnival for Bird Lovers. The 4th edition is up at Milk River Blog.

And, check out Laurence's fine graphical analysis of Friday Ark boardings.

For other current carnivals check out The Conservative Cat's Carnival Page and The TTLB Uber Carnival.

Note for Haloscan Users: Haloscan started (the end of July) rejecting trackbacks if they were submitted "too rapidly" by the same host. I don't know what the timer is but it is long enough so that it was very difficult to ping everyone that is using Haloscan for trackbacks. I'm sure that they are doing this to try to hold back the tide of trackback spam but it makes the service pretty useless for carnival type posts. Perhaps you can contact them and urge some different solution. Update: Typepad appears to be doing the same thing. Everytime I update the Ark it appears the timers are reset and the long list of MT autogenerated pings fail. Yecchhhh....

I think I can say without contradiction it should be Taffy, Sasha, Llama (Justin) and the horse with no name.

Thanks for your posting.
