Yaaay Caturday!

Stache and Skully are excited.

I'll give you one guess as to which one is Stache and why she is named that.

Stache is the sweetest cat ever, but Skully is kind of a biatch

Early Caturday? Yeah!!

So we finally got a good picture of Jack cat, one where you can actually see his features. Usually his face is one big black blob.

A second one of Jack, it makes his eyes look a little odd but that's just a trick of the light.

And one of Mr. Photogenic, aka Cisco. Don't let that innocent face fool you, his belly had been rubbed and he was ready to reach out and bite someone!

Caturday!

We woke up to this yesterday morning, the aptly named Blue:

He rolls over on his back to fart, then he leaves the bed.  I keep asking my wife to stop feeding him bacon pizza, but it's his favorite and she can't tell him no.

Seriously, if you see him like this, he's probably just farted.  Our other cat doesn't fart at all, because she's a lady:

We used to have a cat that would stretch out full length on his side, and with an absolutely blissful look on his face let loose with a SBD.

Mrs. has been owned by cats for most of her (50+) life, and she swears cats don't fart. She refuses to accept the basic premise of 'if it poops, it also farts', and I've yet to convince her otherwise.

Tell Mrs. Vudutek that just because you can't hear them doesn't mean they don't exist. My beasts wait until they are snuggled next to me before the let loose with a HA HA HA look on their faces.

Brothers, 11 months old. Jack is a dufus, Cisco is much more reserved. You can't take a bad picture of Cisco, but nearly every Jack picture is of a black blob. AJ (Mrs Snuffybud) says Cisco is a "Puss in Boots" cat, in that he's got the eyes of Puss in Boots from the movie, including those great big sad eyes when it works to his favor!!!

Happy Caturday everyone!

I saw this particular story yesterday, which because of the holidays throwing things off made it Tuesday in my head,
and thought it would make a good Caturday story. I just figured it would be too stale to use because of the delay before
Thursday night. D'oh!!! I'm a doofus!

Lily has gotten very "clingy" lately. Watches over me wherever I go, sits by the bathroom door until I come out, etc. More than she used to, anyway. Still trying to help me with my mascara in the mornings, too. One of these days, I'm afraid she is going to jump all the way up on my shoulder, and I'm going to have a mascara brush in my eye! :D

I haz a sad. Our Uncle died yesterday, and we found out about it via a facebook post.
Phones still work right?
Uncle Ted was owned by a poodle by the name of Benji. Benji used to visit Ted in the nursing home, until he no longer knew him. The family continues to care for him. I wonder if he knows that Ted is gone.

Wow. Made it to Temp Threadsend while it's still on pg 1. This'll more likely post to 2.
Ex-cellent choice for Caturday this week!  Saw this on new LoveMeow which isn't yet saved; just saw headline go by as I been finnishing local amateur radio rag, which left here ~an hour ago. Then read a ntl every-other-wk amateur radio  newsltr from the ntl organisation, which I requested reprint OK for 3 items therefrom. (They've always said OK, as long as Due Credit's given.)

Need to get rid of this, said before, clean up both magnets & scan screen & Do Over. Also back up & rt clickie some of those pretty & handsome cats not seen before, like Stache & Skruffy.
Failed, now watch me time out....

Sorry to hear about your Uncle. Obviously he was someone you cared about , some people don't think about calling others with the news because they are too upset, others think reading it in the paper is good enough even if they are family. And now some people seem to think Facebook is as good as a phone call such is the hazards of modern life. I still prefer the personal touch myself.
For now just believe that your Uncle is at peace and no longer suffers the horrors of a lost memory.

Saved as Finn Feline Fanatic Magnet. Musta been from a cat-alogue but I already furr-got which one. Which reminded me of a bit picked up, referred to earlier:
In ARRL Contest Update Jan 2 2013
Martti Laine OH2BH contributes this handy world-wide temperature conversion table:
+15 °C, Spanish wear caps, gloves and winter coats, Finns are sunbathing
+10 °C, French desperately try to get their central heating on. Finns plant flowers.
+5 °C, Italian cars won't start. Finns drive with convertibles.
0 °C, Pure water...freezes. Water in river Vantaa thickens a bit.

Uncle Ted was owned by a poodle by the name of Benji. Benji used to visit Ted in the nursing home, until he no longer knew him. The family continues to care for him. I wonder if he knows that Ted is gone.


Sorry to hear about your uncle.

No, you are NOT nuts. It was a crappy way to find out, but at the same time, they may be all wrapped up in their own heads. I don't know all the details (and I don't need to), but try not to be too hard on those who should have informed you. Rest peacefully, Uncle Ted.

Okay, you all can laugh all you want, but I am here to tell you...that was the BEST chicken I have evar had!!! The skin had a nice little bite to it, and the meat was like BUTTAH! And the smoke flavor was perfect!!!
There is a saying in the (bay) South that if you put a spot of something really good on your forehead, your tongue would beat your brains out to get to it!! You just point to your forehead, and say "right here". That chicken, my friends, was "right here"!!!! YUM!!!!! Y'all are just jealous!!! :D And with that, I'm going to bed with a big, happy tummy!!! See y'uns in the morning!!!

Sigh...Yeah, welcome to the 21st century. I would have thought that phones would still be the first thing one would use for delivering bad news, but maybe I'm too old for this stuff. (I hated pocket pagers because all I ever got was a buzz when there was "child trouble" at home, so I may not be one to ask.)

Uncle Ted was owned by a poodle by the name of Benji. Benji used to visit Ted in the nursing home, until he no longer knew him. The family continues to care for him. I wonder if he knows that Ted is gone.

Either way, the idea is to give the little guy a good life now, right?

Aww, tigerose, sorry to hear about your Uncle Ted.

I think a phone call about something like that is only right.  At the *very* least, a private email to family and close friends, before indiscrimately dumping the news onto facebork!  That's just... cold.  :(

May your Uncle Ted rest in peace.

But on a lighter note, I'm looking for a particular brand of cat food. I bought a (damaged) bag at the Farm and Pet Outlet, and the cats loved it. Also a couple of neighbor cats loved it, and the 'possum that lives in a hole in the front yard loved it. A full bowl would disappear overnight, guaranteed.

Since then, I've not been able to find another like it. I didn't write down the name of it, but it comes in a large (30-40 lb) bright yellow bag, but is definitely not Iams, What we are using now is Sportmix brand, and is getting ignored by all the outside critters. The store apparently does not carry it anymore.

Does this sound familiar to anybody?

PB forced me over last weekend (and I can't get the old version back, I think they only let you opt out a limited number of times) and while I agree that on the whole, it is not an improvement, there are a few changes I actually like.

Also, they seem to actually be listening to user's complaints, as things have been changing day to day.

*shrugs* I'll make up my mind when my pro runs out.


Pros:  Does not use flash.  Seems like it might be a tad faster to get around in (see "does not use flash.").  Decent non-eye-bleedy appearance.

Cons:  No "Upload from web" feature (which was, honestly, the main thing I used).  More clickiness required to get the damn direct link (Used to be hover -> mouse -> click, now it's hover over smaller target -> mouse -> click -> mouse -> click).  Keeps irritating me with a tour of new features (it's done this three times in the last 20 minutes, hopefully that's the last one).  Seems to have lost track of its job (Seriously, I want it to store my pics.  I don't need flippin' social network crap on every damn site I use.  I don't need photobucket friends, I don't want to follow other people's albums, etc.  I can't even imagine what "stories" are supposed to be).  No way to jump to the end of the album.  You  have to scroll now.  I've got 800 pics in that album, which probably isn't even a lot, and it just took me 5 minutes to get to the end of it.  It used to take 5 seconds.  When I'm at the bottom of it, I can't get the link to the album anymore.  I have to scroll back up to get to it.  Minor quibble that most people won't notice, but it's doing some things in javascript that aren't kosher, and it's 521 errors since I made my initial post in this thread (take that, fark filter).

Must admit some Guilt for not posting Goodles & Obbs today.  Been Editing, as is somewhat common at month changeover, cept this time was different as I had more time to do so. This week shoulda been last week, & if New Year's hadna been on Tue, it woulda. Always Some Dumb Excuse, eh wot? Had a couple hamfests to research for the 2d newsltr, but now have what I need for them. Plus need not seek them for next month for the local rag.

Of course they don't. I really don't know when they quit; we Don't Go There cept for loo breaks, soda & coffee when  on road trips. For that, we need not know.

Can sympathise with the foto fixin' places new changes & demands.  Tinypic did that to me months ago; major thing they did was to not allow me to re-size fotos any more. Unable to deal with that. Had been watching for who used what, how it worked for them. Based on that, chose imgur, which still bills itself as the simple image sharer. Took some de facto hints from in2it. Then they recently Made Changes, after I'd suggested imgur to lilyspad as a possibility. We both have trubble with it occasionally, are lucky it's not 99.44% of the time.
Have some more electromagic pasting to do. When I began, I literally cut & pasted with scissors & either white school paste or liquid glue equivalent (elmer's). Am pleased not to have to do that any more.

Same here.I thought they would have fixed the buggy editor and cache servers by now. They've been broken for months.


Honestly, I wouldn't know.  I don't really use those features.  I barely need any features at all from it.  All I really want is a way to throw some images someplace without a tiny bandwidth cap and find them again later.  All the extra goodies are lost on me, I'm afraid.

Photobucket was easy with it's posting from the web. I don't need or want Facebook or Twitter. I'm not wild about the new page set up either. I'm not real keen on imgur so I'm still looking for another place and complaining to PB about the web posting. The changes to Fark I'm learning to deal with.

Not sure if it's related to last weeks crap, or part of a larger Yahoo attack.

Happy New Year and let's see how we can screw everyone over with major changes to their online accounts


My curiosity got the better of me, so I took a look at the "stories" (ridiculous patent pending -- for realsies) thing.  It appears that they've created a way to make online scrapbooks.  Which is kinda cool, I guess, but not something I was clamoring for.  Uploading from another site (that  isn't facebook) is a feature I used frequently.  Hit roflbot, make caption, send to photobucket.  See image posted by fellow farker that I liked?  Right click, snag url, pop into mah bucket, done.  Seamless and easy.  Now I've gotta save the damn thing on my own hard drive first.

The Fark changes I'm totally on board with.  Those are things that have enhanced my experience here, if only slightly.  (Though it helps that I've used cke in my own projects for work, back when it was called farkeditor).

Anyway, enough of this foolishness.

MOAR CATS!

DoomsDayAardvark: sherpa18: Cons:  No "Upload from web" feature (which was, honestly, the main thing I used).

OK, I can understand that, then again, I have always used the PB uploader extension in FF, so NBD for me.
More clickiness required to get the damn direct link (Used to be hover -> mouse -> click, now it's hover over smaller target -> mouse -> click -> mouse -> click). Agreed.
Keeps irritating me with a tour of new features (it's done this three times in the last 20 minutes, hopefully that's the last one).
Yeah, I found the easiest way to get rid of that is to take the tour (3 short clicks that really don't tell you shiat)
 Seems to have lost track of its job (Seriously, I want it to store my pics.  I don't need flippin' social network crap on every damn site I use.  I don't need photobucket friends, I don't want to follow other people's albums, etc.  I can't even imagine what "stories" are supposed to be). Never been bothered with that.
No way to jump to the end of the album.  You  have to scroll now.  I've got 800 pics in that album, which probably isn't even a lot, and it just took me 5 minutes to get to the end of it.  It used to take 5 seconds.  When I'm at the bottom of it, I can't get the link to the album anymore.  I have to scroll back up to get to it. THIS. Although the scrolling seems to take less time than jumping to a new page and waiting for the pics and facebook and twitter and other misc crap to load, I think it's actually a bit faster. But yeah, I have an album with 2400+ pics, no way do I want to have to scroll my way through to the end of that.
However, I do like the fact that all of your sub-albums are now available no matter which album you are viewing. And... well, actually now that I think about it, pretty much nothing else is an improvement.

TGIF! The boss asked me to work tomorrow - had to respectfully decline. It's not my Saturday to work and I can't take another day this week. 3 day week feels like 12.


Jeez, no shiat. I thought I was the only one drained from just a 3 day week. Thank God/FSM/whatever deity one prays to that it's over.
