General Discussion / I'm Leaving... for now.
« on: May 11, 2009, 09:45:17 PM »
When I first became, well, obsessed with the Weather Channel, it was in Hurricane Season. There was always action going on. It was also intertwined with monsoon season here in Phoenix. Lately, I haven't been watching the TWC as much as I want to, and neither have I been on this forum. Therefore, I have decided to leave. I don't want to disappoint other members of me entirely leaving so I will come back, first day of Hurricane Season which isn't quite a long time from now.

 I'll be here for 2 more days until May 13. Then I will be gone. If you still want to communicate with me you can email me at s q u i z z 5 (at) q (dot) c o m (piece that together and change the symbols) or follow me on twitter at

See you then!  :wave:

TWC and your Cable Company / Goodbye Qwest Cable. =(
« on: February 03, 2009, 09:01:49 PM »
I got this letter from Qwest today. 

Dear (my name):

Qwest is upgrading our network to offer you the fastest high-speed internet service in your neighborhood. The technology upgrade in your neighborhood is scheduled to be completed by  March 9, 2009. At the same time as the high-speed Internet service upgrade, we will be discontinuing our Choice TV service offerings.
Once the technology upgrade is complete, your high-speed internet service will be as fast or faster than it is today. (for me it's as fast) As an added benefit to the high speed technology upgrade, we will be sending a trained technician to your home to install your upgraded service and assist in setting up a new email account at no cost to you. All you will need to do is schedule an appointment by call us at (their phone number.) When we upgrade the technology your current high speed internet service will be temporarily interrupted until a technician can install a new modem. That is why it is important for you to schedule an installation appointment as soon as possible.
As a result of this technology upgrade, Qwest will be discontinuing its Choice TV service offerings and your service will be disconnected effective March 9, 2009. Qwest has extremely attractive (
) digital TV offers available which will allow you to Switch to DirecTV service available through Qwest. Please call Qwest today at (their phone number) to learn more about DirecTV and to schedule a free installation. Call now and get DirecTV service set up as soon as possible to avoid TV service interuption. DirecTV service should be installed before Qwest Choice TV service ends on March 9, 2009.

I'm scared. I want my IS not Satellite. I know a lot of guys here have DirecTV so I have a couple questions.

Is Satellite pure crap?
Will I have WeatherScan?
Should I be sad?
How is the HD quality?
How is the DVR?
How is DirecTV?
Will I still get my Local On The 8's and the tickers and the other stuff?
Am I rambling?
Should I shut up?
I will.

The Game Room / Make An Understatement
« on: December 21, 2008, 12:33:06 PM »
This game is very simple. The directions are just to post an understatement.
Here are some examples:

The Weather Channel is okay.
Billy Mays talks a little bit louder than a regular spokesperson.
Roland is a little bit obsessed with TV stations.

Now, you try.

On the left you have TWC, WxStar but what about TWC HD? That should be added also.

Contributions / Folding@Home
« on: October 18, 2008, 11:40:24 AM »
I have not been on TWC Today for about a week lately. That is because I have been working on this project. It's called Folding@Home. If you haven't heard about F@H, it's about using your computer to help Stanford University fold proteins. I bet you're wondering why they just don't use supercomputers. Well, it's because it is a lot of money and supercomputers have just as much processing power as PC's. You can download and get more information at F@H at You can use F@H on Windows, Macs, Linux or even on a PS3! When you download it on Windows and F@H is running, you will see a gear in your task bar next to the time. To see what F@H is doing, left-click on the gear. But before F@H can work, you need a name and a team. Guess what? I made a team for TWC Today! Right-Click on the gear and click configure. Type in your username on TWC Today, if it is a name like Alejandro or Tyler maybe add a couple numbers to it or maybe choose a different name altogether. For the team, type in 151541, that's TWC Today's team number. To check how much everybody on our team folded. Right-click on the gear, click configure and click "Team Statistics". Do the same thing to see how much you folded but instead of clicking on "Team Statistics", click on "User Statistics". Good luck and happy folding!

OCMs & Personalities / The real story on "Let's do that"
« on: October 11, 2008, 01:02:41 PM »
Rich and Sharon are known to use the phrase Let's Do That, or Yeah, let's do that or maybe let's do so, but they really don't have a choice. My mother worked in television for a long time and she knows that TWC uses something called a TelePrompTer or what some people call an Autocue. (more info here) The TelePrompTer tells Rich and Sharon what to say. Let's Do That is not their catchphrase, it's in the script and it is what the TelePrompTer shows. Therefore, Let's Do That is not really something that they say if they want. It is mandatory. You can still make fun of them for saying it but this is the truth.

I went on this morning because my dad put it as the homepage and they have videos on the top right. I saw a live video with a test pattern! It was very funny. Click on the picture for a better view

General Discussion / Do I have a good singing voice?
« on: October 08, 2008, 01:33:11 PM »
What I did was I sang to the instrumental of Crazy by Gnarls Barkley for you guys to see how you like my voice. The sound quality is not the best, but it's good enough for you to review. I have it attached. Please comment!

The Game Room / Fear Me!
« on: October 07, 2008, 01:01:16 PM »
The goal is to try to get to 10 posts without an admin posting. If an admin posts you have to start all over again. What you do is you put the number of the post  For example.
Then you put a reason to fear the admins
"Fear the admins for (put reason here)"
So together it would be
Fear the admins for (put reason here)"
Your goal is to stop the members before they get to their 10th post.
You do that by saying,
"Fear Me!"
Then you start with number "1"
After that you write why you fear the members
"Fear the members for (put reason here)
It should come out like
"Fear Me!
Fear the members for (put reason here)"
Just like that. Easy and fun!
Instructions also as an mp3 file
