Doodlecat's Homepage

Picture of Doodle - a 
black cat

Welcome to Doodlecat, where we enjoy the pleasures of life (with a slight bias towards the outdoors). This page is regularly updated with news and views plus information about any additions or changes to the various parts of the site. It acts as Doodlecat’s Blog too, so the odd rant considered opinion may pop up from time to time.

I would love to be able to say that Doodlecat is all my own work, but it isn’t. Much of the outdoors content is courtesy of the splendid people who participate in the annual TGO Challenge (there is a section entirely devoted to this unique event) and many others.

To help in tracking down that elusive morsel on Doodlecat, the search facility under the title bar above is tailored to help you find it, either on this home page (Doodlecat's Blog) all the rest of the site (Main Site) or – if all else fails - the internet!

So have a rummage around the old cat basket and enjoy your time with us!

Blogrolling returns

It's been a while since blogrolling.com got badly hit by some hackers but the guys there have recoded from scratch and expect to have the service back on March 2nd. (touch wood, fingers crossed etc.).

That means that the blogroll up there in the top right hand corner will finally start to roll again. I'll have a load of sites on there, but only the top ten most recently updated will be displayed, so each time you visit, it will be fresh. I know many of us use Google Reader, but I think this service is quite neat (and it keeps my page nice and tidy!).

Not quite there yet - latest post from Blogrolling team:

"The short story is that the team is burning the midnight oil to get BR2 launched and live.

The longer story is that we went live earlier this evening, but we saw some questionable performance characteristics that we weren’t happy with, so decided to rollback and regroup to allow the team some extra breathing room. They are currently working on optimizing a few aspects of the system so that BR2 can better handle the massive load that serving all of your blogrolls requires (we’re serving more than a billion of your blogrolls each year! that requires tons of horsepower…)

I don’t have an ETA to pass along at this point, but we’re not expecting this to take forever. The team needs sleep, so I’m expecting this all to be resolved tomorrow at some point, but hopefully, sooner.

If you have questions, drop us a note on Twitter @blogrolling."

Ho hum...so we wait a bit longer.
