General Weather Chat / Never saw this before
« on: May 06, 2015, 12:38:24 PM »
There's a somewhat tropical disturbance off the east coast of Florida, and while watching my WS4000 emulator I came across an advisory at the beginning of the "Local Forecast" segment I don't think I've ever seen before.

Help and Support / Travel Cities Forecast
« on: January 09, 2015, 12:29:56 PM »
Not the XL emulator, but the 4000... and I didn't know where else to put this.

For the past couple/several (I have no concept of time) of months or so, I've noticed that the Travel Cities Forecast page doesn't load.  After a brief error message it does what it's supposed to by replaying the local forecast screens, but I haven't seen a working TCF on my emulator in quite a while.  In case it makes a difference, I'm using the default city list.

General Discussion / I should update my profile, but I don't want to
« on: August 14, 2014, 12:22:55 PM »
I was just looking over my forum profile and I saw that I still have the IntelliStar number listed.  My cable company duplicated the HD feed on the SD channel several months ago (has it been almost a year?), and yet I never got round to taking the old information off my profile.  We don't have an SD Star anymore, but, in a way, I suppose I don't want to remove the number... as if it's a historical record.

OCMs & Personalities / "The Front" thank you gift
« on: July 31, 2014, 12:15:42 PM »
A little while ago I completed a survey on "The Front" that promised a thank you gift.  It arrived today.  Thing is... I'm not really that big a fan of Jim Cantore.

If anyone wants me to send this in the mail, send me your address in a private message.  It's literally first come, first served.

Your Local Weather / Daytona Beach sunset

I looked out the window earlier this evening and the sky was blood red.  I couldn't help but to run outside with a camera.

Everything Else TWC / Special announcement at 5:00

According to The Weather Channel's Twitter account, there will be a "special announcement" at 5:00 PM Eastern.  I wonder what it is... :dunno:

Serious anti-virus problems going on here this evening.  When I tried logging into the forum my anti-virus program went absolutely bonkers, so I switched to my Ubuntu computer, and even here Google Chrome prevented me from accessing the forum because of malware warnings.  I just barely managed to get in, and even now Google is screaming at me... but Ubuntu is generally better protected from malware than Windows, so I'm taking a chance just to post this message.

TWC and your Cable Company / HD feed on SD channel
« on: June 21, 2013, 08:32:22 PM »
I just noticed that Bright House Networks in Daytona Beach is now airing the HD feed on its SD channel (letterboxed), complete with the IS2 being shown instead of the regular Intellistar.

Is this happening for anyone else?

It took me a while to notice.  I have an HD cable box in the bedroom, but just basic cable without a box (though with an HDTV set) in the bedroom.  I was in the bedroom, just turned on the TV to TWC when the "local on the 8s" LDL came on during longform, and it took me a while before I noticed that not only was the aspect ratio different, but I was looking at the IS2's LDL.  Quite strange.

Maybe I'll start having Intellistar 1 withdrawals now?  :)

General Discussion / No new posts?
« on: March 27, 2013, 10:02:05 AM »
It's 10:00 am and there are no new posts in the forum since late last night?!  Did we go offline or something... or did all of you find lives away from the computer? :cry:

General Discussion / What would you do...

...if you were invited to visit a person for four days, but told you have to bring your own food? :dunno: :blink: :thinking:

TWC Today News / Slow and laggy
« on: January 24, 2013, 11:38:24 AM »
Is anyone else having any problems accessing the forum lately?  It's been rather slow and laggy for me today.

TWC Today News / Weather in posts?
« on: January 18, 2013, 01:13:15 AM »
Any news about when or whether the weather information will be returning to posts?

Not only was it interesting to see the local weather for every member, but it made it so much easier to find out where each member was posting from.

I understand a forum upgrade took this feature away from us, but I haven't heard any updates recently about whether any progress has been made towards getting it back.

Questions, Comments, Suggestions / Phishing warnings

Is there something wrong with the ads on this forum?  Google Chrome is giving me phishing warnings every time I try to open up a thread.
