Friday Ark #101

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....?

You can find out how to board the Friday Ark at the Arkive Page (construction underway).

: The staff is leaving again. Sometime Friday morning we will depart for a long weekend and will be on the road most of the day. Connectivity may be very limited until Monday night. Any boarders that we do not get on the Ark by Sunday afternoon will have priority boarding on next week's Ark.

Update 11:56 AM CDT
: One the road. No more updates until....?

Cat folks: remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Cats which goes up every Sunday and the 126th edition, 8/20 is up at Red Peonies. The 127th edition will be hosted by eatstuff's Weekend Cat Blogging which has many participants who may not be familiar to Ark or Carnival participants. Do go shout out at The Catbloggers Frappr Map.

Bird folks: I and the Bird: A Blog Carnival for Bird Lovers is published every 2 weeks. The 30th edition is up and hosted by Burning Sile The 31st edition will be hosted on 8/31 by migrateblog.

For the spineless: Circus of the Spineless. A monthly celebration of Insects, Arachnids, Molluscs, Crustaceans, Worms and most anything else that wiggles. The 11th edition is up at Words & Pictures. The 12th edition will be hosted August 31st by Sunbeams From Cucumbers.

For other current carnivals check out The Conservative Cat's Carnival Page, The Blog Carnival 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....
