The past few weeks have been pretty weird weather-wise. A few weeks ago, it was cold, then it go warm, and cold again, and back to warm, and now borderline cold/warm.

And now it's back to warm.


Back to cool today…

One month later, and we're still in the same pattern.

Here's an interesting assessment of summer 2010 in Chicago.

Why does TWC need a hurricane "expert" AND a hurricane "specialist"? :wacko: What is the difference between the two? Bryan was on WC tonight giving an update, but what he did was something Dr. Knabb could easily do, too. :unsure:
Not a new concept for TWC.  They had John Hope and Steve Lyons.

Two is (sometimes) better than one.  From the way it sounds, this Bryan Norcross sounds great, and Dr. Knabb is also.

I forgot about Hope and Lyons.  It still seems a bit unnecessary though.

I like Dr. Knabb a lot, but he doesn't seem to have the kind of personality that would attract viewers en masse.  And like it or not, it's all about ratings.

EDIT: I guess showing something like that during a Flood Watch would be the best time to show it, it shouldn't be shown on a regular basis imo.


Agreed.  If a local river gets at or near flood stage, we already get a crawl across the bottom of the screen.

Neat idea, but most people don't care when rivers are at normal levels.  Those who do already visit this site...

Same here, welcome!   B)

It's been nice to have the windows open for the past few days... low humidity.

It doesn't matter what kind of change it is, or how incredibly beneficial it will be - there are just some people out there who are categorically opposed to any kind of change whatsoever, and they'll always view it as a bad thing.

Change is the only constant in life, that's an undeniable fact.

Change for the better is great.  Lateral change (no better or worse, just different) is acceptable.  Change for the worse PISSES ME OFF TO NO END.  I'm waiting to see what this does to  my bill before I decide between lateral and worse.  One week in, and I have yet to see ONE REASON to make me believe that this change is the least bit beneficial.  I have a slew of new channels I didn't have before (95% of which are crap).  If they expect me to pay for all these channels I don't want nor ever asked for (and I have no reason to believe they won't), then they're going to lose a customer; it's that (bleep)ing simple.

Here's the crux of the problem: A Technician was finally out here today.  As we suspected, the box they gave us at first didn't work.  The Tech went out to his truck, got another brand new box and guess what???  IT DIDN'T WORK EITHER.  The third box finally worked.  Non-functional equipment is the #1 complaint about this stupid upgrade.

I'm tolerating it for the time being.

the signal gets blurry at times. <_<

I've had  people who upgraded 6 months ago tell me that.

I AM a bit of a Technophobe, but I would'nt be so irate if it went smoother, or if people in Comcast's customer service/tech support actually knew what they were talking about.   :wacko:

I have yet to see one benefit to this.

I don't understand what the problem is.  So long as people are prepared, then there's no problem at all.

In my family, most of the TVs already had digital cable boxes.  Those that didn't were equipped with the free digital converter boxes from Comcast before the cut-off date, so our house never lost service on any of its TVs.

For starters, they changed the cutoff date from 8/17 to 8/10.  My sister was notified by mail, but we never were.  Hooked it all up today... two of our boxes work, one doesn't.  Personally, my picture quality was better before than it is now.  And the ultimate insult: I'm only getting satellite forecasts on TWC... I'm hoping it's just an outage.

And besides, I was very happy with what I had.  It irritates me when people can't leave well enough alone. 

Is this really being mandated by the federal government?  They suck more than Comcast.   :censored:

Hate to burst your bubble, but lots of people listen to country.

I dig Country as a change of pace, but I really can't listen to it exclusively.  I have several Country songs and CDs in my collection.

They were making fun of that Katy Perry "California Girls" song on the radio the other day.  The host was having trouble reading the lyrics because he was laughing so hard.   :rofl2:

This "digital migration" is a complete disaster.  EVERYBODY is pissed, I've never seen anything like it.

Jeff used to hang out at the old TWC message boards.  He was a really cool guy.

BTW, what was the name of that other show he used to host on TWC?  I liked that show, but it didn't last very long.   :(
