Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

I was having an afternoon nap yesterday when Lizwiz telephoned. Apparently, she said (all apologetic about having woken me up), the YouTube links for a number of the Bloggoposts from last week had disappeared. These included Kara's birthday and most of the Sunday talks from WW2010, including my keynote speech. I have no idea what happened and have replaced them, but it is somewhat disturbing to find that whole swathes of bloggythings can disappear in such a cavalier manner. Any ideas?

I am never surprised by such things as I never expect technology to work for me anyway. I normally say in such circumstances that there has been a glitch in the system, which covers a multitude but doesn't mean anything.

I blame the Russians. As you know several have stayed at my house over the years and they always look like they are up to no good. Especially around the fridge at midnight!

Try re-booting the fergulator with the woz indicator set at zero. Then crank up the brumble drive whilst simultaneously gurning at the Mark II gravitron. After six minutes and forty-two seconds precisely, submerge the sproon enhancer in a bucket of WizzoKleen and switch the power back on. It works for me.
