Tecknickle Tortie Toosday

It's Tecknickle Tortie Toosday and i's haf a couple of tips fur all mine cat blogging furriends. Tha furrst, if you's get a comment that looks like this... don't click on any of tha linkies.
They probably link to a virus or malware that could hurt your blog and/or your computer. Just click on tha little trashcan icon unnerneaf an delete it. [a note, the comment could haf any name on it, not necessarily "janedoe".]
Fur tha second fing, this is why you need a backup and the Blogger Backup Utility. If your bloggie should be hijacked or deleted, an it happens, wif a backup you can easily re-create yours blog in a few minutes. Fink of all the time and hard work you's put into making your beeyouteeful blog, day after day. It makes sense to haf a backup.

Tha wonnerful cat-owned programmer, Greg, created a specshul page to show us how to download hims software, Downloading the Blogger Backup Utility 101. Then there is a page of screenshots and instrukshuns on how to setup tha program. An if that's not enuf, i'll be glad to help. Well, if i's not in tha middle of a nap. Or chasing a bug. Otherwise, i's always glad to help.
Don't furrget to take a look at the Tough-A*s-Tortie-Association's furrst efer Tortie Tummy Toosday. It's awesome, a dazzling array of tortie tummies.

Since it's also Tuxie Toosday, be sure to visit the Tuxedo Gang Hideout and see what all the tuxies are up to. Mine brofur Sol is a Tuxie-in-Training!

An tha funniest fing i's seen in a while, tha House of (Mostly) Black Cats haf a name change, hopefully not permanent, to tha House of (Mostly) Comatose Cats. Get tha "inside storie" on thems bloggie. Slackers!

Hi! Thanks you for all the Tecknickle Advice! You are one furry smart kitty! Great Tummy too! Hee Hee!

I told Ms. Robyn that she need to "build a better mousetrap" and she said that she needed to "build a better mouser"! Mommy is still laughing about that!!!

Good teknickle advice, for sure. I used the blog back-up program the other day and am feeling MUCH better about everything!

And ... at the blog FKA HOT(M)BC ... did you read their excuses? Hmph! Excuses are not enough!! Slackers, indeed! =)

Just kidding. None of the members of Grace & Company have ever caught or killed anything -- all they do is make me aware of something and where it is ... that is, if they're not off snoozing somewhere!

What I want to know is how do I report the guy that left like 20 spam messages on my bloggie to Blogger so they can delete his friggin butt from the system.

Daisy said...

I have been seeing that comment EVERWHERE!

Thanks for the information about backing up your blog. We did it successfully! Hooray! I guess I should do it every couple of weeks or so, to update the more recent stuff.

*sigh* Mommy saided I hadta comment that ya also need to back up yore template too. Yoo gotta do that in blogger tho by clickin the button, or do it manually by copyin the HTML of the template.
I's not gonna talk bout that ofur stuff. And Mommy can't make me!!!

You're absolutely correct: any of those links that have "tiny url"s in them are BAD!

Hee hee hee, i's finded an instrukshunal video of rat-killing tekniques by Diamond Emerald Eyes. an i's leafed it in tha comments for the House of the Completely Comatose Cats. i's gotta warn yous, the sight of that giant rat in a bafroom really made Mommie ML freaky and all nervous. So be careful about letting your beans watch this.

Mickey said...
