DUFC #55 is brought to you by Kim of News with Nipples. Kim celebrates the way in which criticisms of misogyny and sexism have been front and centre in the media this year, rather than given a free pass as usual, and even Tony Abbott has had to try, in his own grotesque way, to give the impression he’s on board with feminism. There’s movement at the station.

As usual, there’s a fascinating collection of the posts that you loved in the month just gone, together with a whole lot of goodness you might have missed. Off you go!

The next Down Under Feminists Carnival is planned for 5 January, 2013 and will be hosted by Chally at Zero at the Bone. The submissions form is here. If it doesn’t work for you, send submissions to chally [dot] zeroatthebone [at] gmail [dot] com.

This month’s Down Under Feminist Carnival is up at Lip Magazine.

Hoydens represent!

I’ve been mugged by offline life at the moment. Must do some more writing soon before tumbleweeds start blowing through the blog.

[Update: The next edition of the Down Under Feminists Carnival is planned for 5 October, 2012 and will be hosted by Bluebec. Submissions to rebecca [dot] dominguez [at] gmail [dot] com for those who can’t access the blogcarnival submissions form.]

Not only is it nearly the end of August and I still haven’t signal boosted the August Down Under Feminist Carnival, but I’ve neglected to link to the Fiftieth Month-aversary in July. Get out the rotten tomatoes! *Ducks*

Down Under Feminists Carnival
 

The 51st DUFC for August 2012 is brought to you by the Conversationalist with a theme of “personal positives”.

The Carnival was on a bit of a hiatus for May – July 2012. July 2012 can be found at A life Unexamined (The Fifty Month – aversary edition). Theme – Gender and Essentialism.

With all that reading, you’ll probably need to chuck a sickie or two.

Cover art for Kate Seredy's The Good Master. A boy and a girl on horseback gallop up to a gate. The girl gets there first and opens the gate without dismounting.

I also have a new post up at Hoyden as part of the Childrens’ Book Council of Australia Book week.

This month’s DUFC is brought to you by Ariane’s Little World. Have at it! It’ll definitely be better reading than all that Bolta stuff.

Oops! I vagued out and missed a month. Yes, February, it just whizzed by.

So here are the links to not one but two carnivals: Number 45 from Maybe it Means Nothing – Lots of NZ as well as Australian goodness here.

The Balcony gets a mention, which makes me feel even worse for missing it.

And Down Under Feminist Carnival no. 46 is brought to you by Chally of Zero at the Bone, also Hoyden about Town, and who also coordinates the whole thing. Props to you, Chally, and thanks both of you for the link love.

This month’s Carnival is brought to you by Mary of Hoyden about Town and the Ada Initiative, among many other cool technology groups and projects. Mary is the latest recipient of the Linux Australia Rusty Wrench, an award for services to the Open Source software community.

What with the kerfuffle I’ve had re. being hacked and changing domains, I’ve neglected to post about the last two Carnivals. Here are links to DUFC #42 and #43.

The latest DUFC is brought to you by Stef at A Touch of the Crazy.

What’s Good: This enables me to put a post up despite not having written anything for a month.

What’s bad: Not having written anything for a month.

This is the busiest time of year at the Steve Jobs Memorial dogs home (and cattery): It’s when we send the personalised statement out to hundreds of thousands of dogs (and cats) with lots of variable data presenting itself in different ways according to the breed of the dog (or cat). The Dalmation Spot Count alone needs a week of testing. This year it’s fraught because it’s the first time we’ve done it since the release of our new system, DOGZ. As anyone who has worked on a systems upgrade will know, some issue over HERE will cause some bizarre problem over THERE some of which, despite the best efforts of your testers, will slip through due to their sheer bizarro-unpredictability. This year it appears a bunch of wire-haired terriers have missed out on the mailout due to a glitch in the code intended to exclude Mexican Hairless, and we have to do some more work to run the mailout just for them.

Also, I have something wrong with one of my finger joints, and I know there’s no weaker-sounding excuse than “I haz a sore finger.” But it’s making typing a pain.

Back soon.
