Interesting fact: some very few small cable headends still use TV Guide equipment on what is now the Pop network. Here is a tuner video screenshot of the network from Charter channel 16 in Grand Coulee, WA, taken yesterday:



This headend has an analog-only lineup that only goes up to channel 99, with no digital Clear QAM or HD channels whatsoever. There aren't even digital set-top boxes with interactive TV guides, at lease not anymore because Charter discontinued the >100 channel lineup in Grand Coulee back in '08. I guess it makes sense as to why Charter still has TV Guide equipment, but still, it's kinda interesting how this is probably one of the very few headends left that still use the equipment even long after Pop rebranded from TVGN.  :yes:

That does NOT resemble a government site at all. I hope their other sites won't follow suit. :no:

I actually really like it. Looks a lot better than what it used to in my opinion, and it's nice to see the government modernizing their websites. They can't stay in the 1990s or 2000s forever lol :whistling:

They actually updated it not long before this, and the design matched in general with weather.gov and other NOAA sites.

We had a lot of hail yesterday, I apologize for the quality not being that great. I was caught off guard on how bad this storm was going to be so as soon as I went out in front of one of the windows on my back porch I hit record. The hail and wind actually got a little worse after this, but my memory on my SD card ran out so I couldn't record it. <_<

After a year break, welcome back to the Pot Belly Stove. A communal way to get through the long dark nights of winter and share your grivences with the cold, snow and ice. (Thundersnow encounters are welcome here too!)
