What's rong with Blogrolling.com?

Phoebe asks:

Dear Skeezix,
Do you know why blogrolling isn't working? none of the blogs say which blogs are updated. It's making it hard for me to catch up on my friends. I just wondered if anyone else noticed it. I went to blogrolling website and everything was just normal there.

This happens peeriodikly. I'm pasting in a post frum my 1/03/07 blog, in wich Victor Tabbycat ixplanes part of the problim and how yoo can git yer blog to show as updated:

"This is copied strate frum the Cat Blogosphere, frum advice that my best frend Victor Tabbycat gave on gitting Blogrolling.com to note that yer blog has bin updated. I think they wint on a permunint vakayshun!:

Victor Tabbycat haf sum reely tekneecal advice if u's use Blogroll: Ok, so it's not really news, but if you use Blogrolling fur your linkies an NONE of them say updated, wul, that's happenin to efurryone but the support beans is fast asleep an hidin.

Anyway, there's ONE way to make sure anyone who links to you wif Blogrolling knows you've updated.
1) Go to
http://www.blogrolling.com/ping.phtml.
2) Fill out the form.
3) Click Ping (the button, not the kitty at Abby's house)

For asample, I puts "Bonnie Underfoot and Victor Tabbycat" in the first box an "
http://2tabbys.blogspot.com/" in the second box. I fink if they don't start fixing Blogrolling or at least talkin to the users who are askin them to fix it, we should all go ofur an HISS at them.

BTW, Blogrolling is run by TuCows an we might haf to hiss at them too. Are cows as vishus as deer? I fink I furgot to mention that if you "ping" blogrolling, you haf to do it EVERY time you post. I sure hope they fix it soon!

Thanks Victor (and the Cat Blogosfeer) for publishing this importint informayshun!Sum of us are lost withowt the pinging becuz it takes so much more time to vizit all the blogs! I uzhully go down my long list and vizit all the updated wuns, but if I don't know hoo has an update, I have to vizit evry singul one... it takes forever, and I can't git to evry wun. So taking the time to ping win Blogrolling's auto-ping is down will
rezult in more vizits to yer blog. Reely! I promiss!"

Thanks for posting this. I was wondering what was wrong with my Blogroll.

We "pinged", but it didn't do anything. (we know cause we checked on Tracy's blog). I guess we should go and complain at blogrolling?

Pinging hasn't been working this time either. My Big Fat Orange Cat always has to ping but even that doesn't get updated on the links on our other blogs. Blogrolling is really down this time!
