I've been wondering...

Have you ever noticed that some bloggies have 5 some have 6 and some have 8 letters in the crazy box word varification??? Some are RED some are Blue. And the worst are the ones that you don't KNOW you are going to have to type the crazy letters in... until AFTER you click on (or off) and think your comment will get posted. I hate those. Do you???? I must admit that sometimes... on those bloggies... is just say Pfffffffft and move on rather than fool with it.
Do you ever have that weird box pop up that says it is a secure site??? or Insecure site or security risk thingy??? Then you have to go over and click on Yes you want to go there.
What the heck is up with all that stuff anyway???

I guess I am kind of a CRANKY FRANKIE today beclaws... yesterday I got mom and dad busy at 9:30 AM and didn't let them stop until 3:45. I worked in the yard the entire day. you should see the new crop of holes that I have!!! Mom did laundry, defrosted the big freezer, cut all the grass and stuff away from her red raspberry vines, and helped dad with the porch. Dad is taking the old porch floor up and is going to put a new one down. With new carpet too. I love the front porch in the summer. It will make for softer napping with the carpet. Mom pulled nails out of the boards when dad pulled them off. She has a whole tub of nails and chunks of boards. Of course I had to snoopervise them on and off... just so they wouldn't be sitting around drinking coffee all day. I also had to do some major Tree Rat chasing now and then. I guess I can be a bit cranky after that. BUTT, I would still like to know about those thingys.

Morning Frankie
Don't be cranky, Frankie. Spending the whole day working outside sounds divine.
Mom doesn't like the word verification because she doesn't see well. Sometimes she has to type it in 2 or 3 times b4 she gets it right.

Yeah, Frankie - that makes us cranky too!
Wow-you were one busy wiener!!

Hey Frankie! I am not a big fan of word verification...especially when it comes up after you hit post comment like you said. I turned mine off for a while but started getting "anonymous" comments and spam....so, I turned it back on and voila! No more spam. Sorry! I don't think I get that weird box you are talking about.
We all need a day to be cranky every now and then. Sounds like you had quite a crazy day yesterday. I would love to see your hole garden.
Snuggles,

i hate the verification box but i just had to add it recently because i got horrible spam!! grrrr...sorry!

houndstooth said...

Those letter thingies are a pain, but they do help to keep spam from getting posted in our blog comments. We also have a problem with someone from China or Korea posting replies on our blog that have a link to pictures of naked people. Ewwww! I do NOT want to be looking at people with no clothes on.

I'm glad you gave your parents a workout! It helps to keep them in shape (and I guess makes them look better naked, since people care about that sort of thing). Have a more relaxing day today!

YAh Frankie I hate those word thingys too. They have such squiggley lines all smushed together that you cant read them already anyways and you have to redo it 87 bzillon times BOL If us doggies designed things, it sure wold be simpled and much easier. We could just paw the screen and pop, there it is posted!! When will they ever listen to us??

Hi Frankie,

Say, have you ever heard when your wedding is going to be? The dress I bought for it last month is already out of style!

Just wondering???

Luv,
Star.

Haha! Cranky Frankie! You're funny even when you're cranky! I don't like those word verifying thingies either. But sometimes they make me laugh. Like, the other day, one of 'em was lappfuge. I know what a lap is. And I know what fudge is. But what is lappfuge? And do I really WANTS to know?

I despise word verification. It takes a blog owner ten seconds to scan comments for spam and delete as necessary. But word verification costs readers a lot of combined time...

kissa-bull said...

and they are no fun at all!!
good thing you were there frankie fureter to snoopervise the pawrents else nothing would get done eh?

Hi Frankie, I hope you have an awesome day with lots of things to make you smile, and maybe a long nap so you feel better. The word verification boxes are interesting to me, because they usually aren't just random letters, but they aren't real words either. Have you noticed that they always have vowels in the right places to make what could be a word but isn't? I don't know how they do that.

Dory and the Mama said...

We blame those verification boxes on spam!! BAD SPAM!! Except when it comes from a can and is fed to me of course!

I think you may need lots of naps to cheer you up today Frankie...or maybe you should call Ruby and Penny, I bet they could make you feel better!

Smileys!
Dory

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Cheer up Frankie!! We know what you mean about that word thingy! We hate it, when we leave a furry long comment and there's one of those error messages and it erases the whole thing!!

Sounds like an awful lot of work being done there - we bet everyone is tired. We don't like those boxes either where the verification word pops up at the last minute. Sometimes we even close out the box because we thought it was done and then it loses our comment and we have to start all over. We didn't use to have the word verification but we were getting tons of comments in some Asian language that would appear all at once on about 25 past posts. It is really aggravating because you don't know what they are saying. And how annoying to have to find each post to delete the comment.

When you are done with all your work, Mom wants to know if your humans can come here and do some for us.

We have problems that sometimes (not always for reasons unknown) when we leave comments the whole computer goes crazy and we get pop-ups going everywhere (like you accidentally hit a doggie porn site) and have to turn the computer off to stop it. Mom gets very frustrated and cranky when that happens.

The Two Country Poodles said...

Both are no fun...but its better to be safe than sorry. We had to put a verfier up on our blog cause we were getting spam...not the kind to eat either.

Yeah, I don't care for that typing in the word thingy either....
Glad your mommy and daddy enjoyed working....they get tired but I bet they had a good nights sleep!

We are with Nigel!

It is just as easy to peruse 'em and delete the spammy ones - we also snikhker when both the khode word AND khomment moderation is in place -

BUT to each their own!

Great job on the chore day!

I had my own tree rat enkhounter - Mom will share those pikhs on Saturday!

BRUTUS said...

the verification box amuses us actually... But we're weird like that! Some crazy "words" it comes up with makes us laugh sometimes. Plus it keeps the nasty spammers away, so we're all good with that!!

Good observation Frankie. By the way, you have a good reason to be cranky. Funny

Lorenza said...

Hi, Frankie!
Haaa! I know how you feel about the word verification! Sometimes we get the most strange group of letters and not very easy to read!
And I get that weird box in my own blog!
Does that mean it is not a safe place?? Haaa!
Sounds like you had a very busy day working outside! I hope you had a nice and loooong nap after that!
Kisses and hugs
Lorenza

Alli and Frankie said...

Yes, the verification box is irritating. Sometimes I forget and click return and then get the **warning.**

I'm sorry you're feeling cranky, my friend! Maybe you just need a nice nap on your new porch! :)

Twinkietinydog said...

Frankie, I like you cranky because you speak the truth. You just spoke for me too. Even on days when I'm not cranky, I can easily get that way after so many verifications and worse yet lost comments...

It is ever so frustrating when the humans are busy making doing unimportant stuff. As if it won't be available for them to do when you are busy napping. Sheesh!
