Paw-Post Cancelled this week - no time again

Hi All, So my on-call week was pretty rough as usual, then I was out of town for the weekend and just got back tonight. While the Paw-Post's links are done, I wasn't able to find the time to interview the highlight, plus I'll be getting ready for bed in 90 minutes from writing this, so I don't have…

Paw-Post conundrum ... *scratches head*

Hi All, So I got a bit of an issue both this week and next. I have family over this weekend and I'm on-call for work, which has meant work on the Paw-Post (or furry-anything) has not been possible. I've also had no luck in securing a highlight yet due to crickets from the invites I sent out. Next w…

Paw-Post is delayed tonight - 12 to 24 hours

Hi Folks, I have been out of town nearly the entire day, got back walked dog, made dinner, BUT - I have to be up at 3am tomorrow to do some early-morning core upgrade stuff at work, so with the super early bed time (about a half hour from writing this), just don't have time to do the Paw-Post today…

Paw-Post cancelled for this week - busy TC again. >_<

Hi All, Just a quick heads-up that I need to cancel the Paw-Post for this week because I have had no time at all to work at it in the last week, or on the weekend. This, unfortunately, it becoming a growing problem on two fronts. At home, I was not getting a lot of sleep. I aimed for 7 hours a nigh…

The Paw-Post will be postponed today...

Hi All, So... the last week was very busy, and I'm out of town for 3 days this week. I have two highlight interviews in-progress, but not yet complete as well. So... while I could rush like mad and get a "Paw-Post Lite" out tonight, I would rather give you guys a complete one that's not rushed. Sin…

HEADS UP: The Paw-Post is moving to Monday Nights!

Hi All! I have been mulling this idea over for a while now, and after talking with the editors, we've decided to move the Paw-Post to Monday nights. There are a lot of reasons for this being better - here are a few: The weekend is easier for most of the editors for finding time to work on it More t…

The Paw-Post is delayed tongiht

Hey All, I'm on-call and had to head into work for an issue tonight. The Paw-Post will be delayed as I deal with this problem - I hope to get it out within 24 hours or less. TC

The Paw-Post will be slightly delayed...

Due to the holidays, I have been out of town most of the week visiting family, and some of the Paw-Post editors have also been tied up, as well as the highlights. As such, the highlight is only partly done tonight as is much of the Paw-Post itself, AND, I just got back home. So rather than outright…

Paw-Post postponed 'til next week - busy TC!

Heyo! As the title says, unfortunately this week has been a combination of things that have kept me too busy to do anything with the Paw-Post or pursue a highlight. Family staying at the house has made it impossible to do any work from home on it, and work has been busy as well with the students no…

Today's Paw-Post is cancelled...

Hi All, Don't worry - everything's okay; it's just been a week that's been so busy I haven't even gotten the template for it handed out to the editors yet! That along with the fact that highlight is moving slowly and won't remotely be ready for tonight (thus, having to do a partial highlight and up…

The Paw-Post interview with Chameleonice is finished!

First off - thankfully the reason he was unable to finish yesterday was not serious! The interview has now been completed, so just head over to the Paw-Post to read the remainder of it. :) https://www.weasyl.com/journal/129471/the-paw-post-jun-22-2018-artist-highlight-chameleonice

Tonight's Paw-Post delayed until tomorrow - read for details

Hiya folks - so yes, the Paw-Post is going to be delayed tonight, by at least 12 hours. I started my on-call week today and a number of issues kept me at work very late - a 14 hour day. In addition, we have family over tonight, and I don't have the time/privacy or mental energy left to finish it be…

Switching to Discord from Skype

Yeeaaaah, so any of you left using Skype have probably noticed the product has been getting progressively worse this year. Even though there's been a "beta" version out for Linux for around a year, they still haven't fixed a single thing anyone's suggested or complained about, and as of today, it s…

Today's Paw-Post is cancelled for family medical reasons

Hi All, Unfortunately I have to announce that I cannot complete the Paw-Post for today, Friday the 25th. Apart from it having been an immensely busy week at work due to a major firewall failure (with a couple very early morning sessions to swap out hardware), I received the news that my father had…

FYI - The Paw-Post may be a bit late today

It is my mate's birthday today and with her kid/grand kids coming over along with time spend with her, I will likely not be able to get to the Paw-Post until much later than usual. So it may not get posted until after midnight, EDT, depending on how much work there is left to do. Apologies in advan…

Assue Luvtail Interview has been added!

Hi All! While I was at the conference, Aussie was able to get the interview done for the June 2'd highlight. Then I got sick... and didn't get it shoehorned in as quick as I thought I could, BUT, it is done now! Head back to that Paw-Post to have a read of this gentle, wonderful macro's thoughts on…

Paw-Post Artist Highlight added for Aug. 19th!

growf To my surprise, I had an artist Highlight waiting for me this morning in my messages (which I dumbly did not check until early afternoon) - so I have added it to the last paw-Post! Please see the last Paw-Post journal entry and go have a read. :) TC

Fur In Need: please read, help, and/or spread the word!

I wanted to repost between Paw-Posts the Fur-In-Need bit. The fur AussiexS needs help raising the partial funds for a surgery to relieve a type of major chronic pain. Aussie is Vallhund's mate, and the window of opportunity is quickly running out before they have to restart the insurance process wh…

Friday Paw-Post delay - Internet Outage

Hi all, Writing this at work before I had home - Southern Ontario is under a major internet outage from the cable provider Rogers: http://canadianoutages.com/status/rogers/map/ There's been no word on what's wrong, why or an ETA, but given that this is affecting millions of people and is that wide…

Q&A answers added for Jan. 15th Paw-Post!

Hi All! Got the character highlight Q&A section added for Fenrir - head over to that journal if you'd like to see it: https://www.weasyl.com/journal/100676/tgif-jan-15th-paw-post Alternate Link: https://www.furaffinity.net/journal/7316245/ (I'll eventually delete this journal - it's just a heads-up)

Artist Highlight posted for Friday's Paw-Post!

Hello all! This is just to notify folks that Cari's Highlight has been added to Friday's Post-Post. As I thought, she did get tied up in Thanksgiving Day weekend more so than she had thought she would, so was not able to finish them in time for the post. Located at the bottom of the post as usual:…

Skype issues this morning, and Telegram (nope!)

Mornin' All. Just as a heads-up, Skype is having major issues this morning with authentication. Microsoft seems to be addressing with their usual professionalism (basically apathy), so who knows when it will be back up and running. This does bring to mind an interesting thing; I've noticed a lot of…

Footpaw/feet classification system for Paw-Posts...

Okay... before I get to today's Paw-Post (which with constant meetings today is going to be tricky), I wanted to post this first to have something to link back to. Yesterday, Sera and I were having a discussion about some sort of way to rate the type of footpaw along with the other ratings I assign…

Christopher Lee passes :(

Just learned of the passing of Sir Christopher Lee - a true titan of movies and theatre. He has been credited with being in more films than nearly any other actor, and lent his legendary voice to SO many animated and video game characters. http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-33098353 http://…

Paw-Mail is coming - just delayed

Heads up to everyone watching for it - I am working on it, but much of the morning was spent pulling some fibre connections, packing up some routing gear for a new datacentre and long meetings, so little chance to work on it. I'll be releasing it once I'm back from Lunch and finish it up. Today's c…

Friday the 13th Paw-Mail dud :(

growf Our luck held for last month's Friday the 13th, but apparently two in a row really is bad luck - I don't have enough content to make a Paw-Mail for today, plus despite having asked multiple artists about a feature, none have yet gotten back to me. So... without many pictures to sure and no hi…

Paw Mail, anyone? (please share your comments and vote!)

For the last few months, I've been sending out some old-school paw-mails for a couple friends. Usually it's 3 or 4 of them a week of some of the best paw-pics I've found so that I can share'em with other paw-lovers who don't necessarily have as much time to hunt around for them. Another friend woul…

Warrior Passes :(

Anyone that knows me probably knows I'm a big Pro-Wrestling fan, always have been. Yes... I know it's fake, but that's what makes it so entertaining; it's made to look brutal, but it's not. It's a story put into physical action, and maybe that's part of the lure. I was shocked moments ago to read t…

Friend Rquests - oopsy...

Looks like I have to take back my usual neutral stance of not doing friend requests on sites like this that support them.
