I vote for this to be the Caturday thread.

This guy's not far from me. Somebody here had better step up or I'm going to have another cat.

I'm on the West Coast, but if I was in the area where thesecats are, I'd adopt the brother and sister in a heartbeat.

I also vote for this one for the Caturday thread!

One person should take all four, if they can.. no worries about them not getting along.. if I could, I would... Mommacat had her kittens.. three of five didn't make it.. stillborn. The two survivors are doing well..

I am so sorry to hear about the ones that didn't make it, poor babies. Very sad, but I am glad to hear the others are doing well! Post pics? Or e-mail them to me (EIP) and I will post 'em for you?

I've seen the pics of OlderGuys kittehs! D'aww!

Actually what would be nice is if someone could take all 4 and "hold" them until he comes home again. Skype with teh kittehs? Just a thought...
 
2012-06-28 08:30:51 PM  
Ack, I wish I had a stable place where I could be right now. I'm on the wrong side of the continent though. :-(

When I get things stable here, I'm going to visit the shelter and get me some housemates.

Sherpa and Tigerose have them.. I am sure that they will post them.. The kittens and Momma are doing well... she is staying right with them... I can't believe I stayed in there through that.. I have a weak stomach where gore is involved..

Hey Caturday folk...just a reminder about the fark equipment move on June 30th and the ensuing downtime.

Mike's blog with details of the move

And since Mike & his noble crew are going to endeavor to let us watch the move via streaming video, here's the farkmove USTREAM link

See ya Saturday!

It's amazing what we will do, as parents, when our kids are involved! Gore doesn't seem to register until later...

Hey, there's an idea for a touch tablet app! You should have the option to control a bright laser pointer like dot on the receiving screen so you can video conference and play with your with your pets remotely. It would work great if the camera is positioned correctly.

Doesn't sound too difficult but It's been years since I've coded anything....any active coders out there?

...and let's not forget...

Heh! I don't know if Caturday will run an extra day due to downtime, but I'm sure no one would complain if it did. :-)

Mike posted later on in the linked blog that there's a chance of rain, so he and his crew will need to get tarps or use a vehicle. We don't want fark's equipment to get wet. That would be a very bad thing.

They need to contact one of the boat storage places that shrink wrap boats for the winter. I'm sure they could help...Either that or you need an umbrella brigade. I might pay to see that! :)

Wet electronics usually causes smoke to appear.. and you can't put it back !!

Happy Caturday everyone!
It hit 105 degrees here, and we have sought refuge in a hotel for the next couple days.
Participation may be hit n'miss.
Here's hoping the move goes smoothly and the Makers Mark stains don't get washed
away by rainfall.

If QJ went there with hushpuppies, would that cause the rain to evaporate before it affected the equipment?

I would probably keep the rain off, but it would be very corrosive on the electronics.

Hope TFA kitties find good home(s)...and thank you, sir for your sacrifice on your country's behalf.


'Sacrifice' in that going by the kittehs' ages, they've been his companions for a long time...and 'multiple year deployment' is going to be a helluva wrench for everyone involved.

Yea!

Finally in, didn't even notice when this went green.
tigerose may have the right idea, someone to lodge the 4 who run Chris Schaeffer's life til he get back. Tho obviously his Feline Overlords aren't powerful enough to prevent his deployment overseas! Too bad --
Older Guy, you too know smoke test is so crucial to electronic equipment testing!

Trouble assembling PDF edition of local amateur rag. URL for a DXpedition to Malta refused to transmit along with the column it was in, automagically corrupted once it reached me. 1st entry in column, natch. Rang up columnist's house (he's a pharmacist, works worse hours than almost anyone else I know), Mrs. had look at file, URL wouldn't extract. She rang him up at work, he said & she relayed,
"Never Mind That URL, esp as others do work."

A little bird told me that Sherpa's Dragon will be 16 in less than 2 weeks! Let's hear it for our older feline friends! Woot!

Eli was 10 this last February. (I think!). My Mom's cat, and my highschool graduation gift was 17 when she passed, and was born on the Ides of March!

I think we need an un-birthday party for our cats. That way we can celebrate their place in our lives and not worry about actual birthdates....or maybe a "gotcha day"?

Eli sure has gotcha my heart!

I think I need to stop drinking coffee now

You too know the secret of how electronics work. It's really smoke.

Let the smoke out of your stereo? It doesn't work anymore.

And your never going to get the smoke back in those little wires.

They still pose in funny poses, but only when you are a) at work b) without your camera c) on the can/taking an important call/rushing out somewhere...it's all a plot!

But we'll take a picture of your cat, just being a cat...we like those too!

Salem Witch That is cool. I will have to look at Eli's file from the shelter to see when we adopted him. I know it was October, and I was looking for a black cat..but then Eli climbed into my son's lap, purred, licked him and we were signing the papers. Over ruled by a cat. Again! :)
