Hurricane Central / Major Hurricane Michael Upgraded
« on: April 19, 2019, 07:26:26 PM »
Michael was upgraded from a Category Four to a Category Five hurricane today by the NHC post analysis. The last category five hurricane to strike the US was Andrew back in August 1992.

Historical records Michael broke....
-Latest Category 5 hurricane to hit the US.
-4th strongest hurricane to hit the US, trailing only behind the Labor Day 1935 hurricane, Camille (1969), and Andrew (1992).
-3rd hurricane to hit Florida as a Category Five.

Eboni Deon who left TWC back in 2008 to go work at WFTV in Orlando, FL has made her debut on Atlanta's local ABC affiliate WSB-TV this past Saturday (Dec. 29th). She'll be working the weekend morning shift. She's likely taking over for current weekend morning met Brian Monahan who will likely be moved to weekday mornings to replace retiring Karen Minton next month.

How in the world is the upload speed double what the download speed is? I didn't even think that was possible. :huh:

Anyone who has Xfinity as their internet provider, did you recently get a speed boost? I have Performance Plus/Blast package and my speeds went from 100 mbps to 150 mbps today after being out of service since Wednesday night. I read an article about a month ago talking about them doing this nationwide but I didn’t get a notice that it was happening this week here. It’s cool with me, its a free upgrade anyway.                                                                    PC - 180.33mbps Download 10.65 Upload   Xbox One S - 177.07 mbps Download 11.66 Upload                               PS4 - 161.6 mbps Download 9.1 mbps Upload     Nintendo Switch - 46.2 mbps Download 9.4 mbps Upload

Pre-Ordered from Amazon since I get 20% off with a Prime membership ($47.99 instead of $60). I would have bought it from Best Buy, but they apparently ended their Gamers Club Unlocked program which sucks, I really loved that membership program for buying video games.

You can buy "Just Groovin" for $1.29, "Autumn Dance" however is listen only. You can't buy it. :(

Both Songs were featured on playlists on TWC back in 1999.


Thanks, um....yeah...there’s some big flaws in this concept. It’s funny how they have the week ahead and only show two days followed by showing the weekend separately. Last time I checked a calendar there were seven days that made up a week including the weekend. lol A text based forecast would be nice, but I get why it’s absent. There’s not a lot of space available for especially for days with active weather, they can get very lengthy because of how specific they can get.

Can someone post a picture of what this looks like? I have no idea what this looks like since I don't have cable/TWC anymore.

I've been wanting to do this for years and I finally decided to bite the bullet and go for it. I'm starting my own gaming channel on Youtube, it's called, "NintenGamers Nation". As the name implies, it's Nintendo exclusive content. However, I will cover Playstation/Xbox together on a separate spinoff channel I'll be calling "PlayBox Nation". I haven't decided when I'll start this channel however, possibly as early as this Summer.

So I'll be doing let's plays, reviews, unboxings, discussions, etc. Not gonna lie, it's gonna be a little rough around the edges starting off, but hopefully it will quickly get better and easier as time goes on. Also you won't be seeing my face (for now), but you'll hear my voice doing commentary so if you've known me around here for a while and are curious to hear what I sound like here's your chance! lol This is a soft launch so to speak, so I'll only be uploading on weekends (and holidays) for the foreseeable future.

The first game I'll be covering is Splatoon 2 for Splatfest this weekend. It's Baseball vs. Soccer in North America. Salty Popcorn vs. Sweet Popcorn in Europe.

Here's the link, check it out if you're interested.

Apparently Vivian Brown is freelancing at our local CBS affiliate (CBS46) I saw her do a weather forecast about an hour ago.

EDIT: She's actually been there since November last year according to this.

I'm probably a bit insane here, but last month I added (or re-added) a new edition to my video gaming family, an Xbox One S, which fits in nicely with the Nintendo Switch/SNES mini, and PS4. For monetary reasons, I went for the slim model over the X model, I could afford it, but there's no way in hell I'm paying a grand for a video game console regardless if it's from Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo. I also gave away my 3DS XL and my 10 year old Wii which is still in good condition.

The only thing now is not only is my niece interested in getting a Nintendo Switch for here birthday in June, she's also very interested in getting a Xbox One S now. Oh god, what I have done! :doh:  :lol:
