General Discussion / Gale-Farce Winds
« on: September 15, 2018, 09:12:47 PM »
I'm not 100% sure what to make of this video.  This isn't necessarily a shot at TWC per se, because EVERY media outlet is guilty of this (some more than others).

There is a LOT of wisdom in what Mike Rowe says here.  Don't automatically believe ANYTHING you hear or read.  If somebody isn't embellishing a situation for ratings, they may be trying to propagandize an unsuspecting public.

OCMs & Personalities / Dave Schwartz Battling Cancer
« on: February 05, 2016, 08:29:01 PM »
Dave announced on the air yesterday that he is currently battling stomach cancer.  He's already lost over 30 pounds and will soon lose his hair.

Dave is one of my favorite OCMs, and he'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

General Weather Chat / Harry Volkman 1926-2015
« on: August 22, 2015, 09:17:54 PM »
IIRC, TWC did a segment on Harry about a year ago.  When Harry was working in Tulsa back in the 50s, the FCC wouldn't let TV Meteorologists report on tornadoes as they were happening.  Knowing that stupid rules were made to be broken, Harry became the first to report on one.  His actions that day may have saved a countless number of lives.  He last worked for WFLD in Chicago in the early 2000s.

Rest in Peace, Harry

WeatherSTAR Tech Support / Major Timing issue
« on: December 14, 2013, 09:12:11 PM »
For every Local Forecast, I'm seeing the entire satellite forecast.  Then about two minutes later, the STAR presentation begins (interrupting whatever programming is on at the time).  It's been out of synch before (usually by 30 seconds or so), but it has never been this bad. 
Thanks in advance.   B)

TWC and your Cable Company / Interrupted forecasts?
« on: June 12, 2011, 05:51:34 PM »
Did a search and couldn't find anything (SIAP).  Actually, I'm not 100% sure where to post this.

Am I the only one who's having his LFs interrupted by commercials?  It doesn't happen every time, but when it does, the CC screen shows as normal.  All of a sudden, a commercial comes on.  It shows two commercials, then goes back to the LF for the 36 hour forecast.

This is without a doubt Comcast's doing, because A.) TWC would never do anything like this, and B.) The first commercial is always one for Xfinity, with the second usually being a local commercial.

It's irritating.   :angry:

General Discussion / Observation in GEICO commercial
« on: December 26, 2010, 09:22:40 PM »
I just want to make sure I'm not losing my mind here.   :blink:

It's the one GEICO commercial that's a spoof of "Antiques Roadshow" (A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush).  Has anybody noticed the sign hanging on the wall in the background that says "the traveling appraiser?"  The font is different, but the white lettering in the blue box...

Am I the only one who thinks it looks like the TWC logo?

WeatherSTAR Tech Support / Timing issues
« on: November 24, 2010, 08:51:52 PM »
IntelliSTAR 21805 has been a little off lately.  For the past several days, it has been late to start (I'll see about 5 seconds of the satellite forecast before the STAR kicks in and does its thing).  Today, it was starting early, while the audio was still saying "And now your local forecast" (and thus, finishing early, so now I'm seeing a few seconds of the satellite forecast at the end).

Thanks.
