Interwarn
« on: November 18, 2011, 06:01:14 PM »
Is anyone able to connect to the interwarn site?   I noticed on the 16th  my map stopped updating and today  it is totally black.  So...  I went to their site  and cannot connect to it.

This is unusual for Evan... and I am wondering if it is just me or  their site is down ....

It's all down. And, you know what will happen. He will reset the server, things will start working again and he'll say nothing is wrong on his end, it has to be our computer clocks or a firewall. Just another stupid day in Evanland.  :roll:

I dropped him an email letting him know to kick the server.

I know  about Evan, but he has a nice product and I am a dweeb, and not a professional meteorologist.    In Iowa, meteorologists are on the scorned list:

Lawyers
Teachers
Meteorologists
happy meteorlogists


are there any other products that give the current conditions, other than weather display.  that only gives the warning when they come across the net

I use Interwarn, really that is the only software that is fairly cheap and shows Warnings the second they are released. Your best bet would be to go with Interwarn.

Good lord, he is still down.....  I am growing weary of taking the damn image off my site and putting it back only to take it off again

It would be comforting to see a posting that the site is down, he is working on it, some political drivel we all understand.

Yep. Went down again just before 4:00 this morning. He better check his computer server clock.  :roll:

I'll look in to the receiver...  and I just took down the graphic again... sigh....   I like his product,  it zaps me a message to my android, much like WD does.   I can go with WD  as it aways works for me.

Reminds me of this cartoon.   a dog sits between a tree and a hydrant,   the caption  "decisions, decisions"

But the other sites are up.

I'm still receiving the warnings, watches, etc.

How are you using Interwarn?

In case you missed it above:

Does a whole lot more than just warnings.

Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.

I think it's awesome. I've used it for several years now.

I'm getting ready to have it tested for use within our school system. We have about 150 sites it might get deployed to.

I noticed there seems to be an Interwarn outage the last couple of days. I am not getting the warning messages like we used to? The www.interwarn.com site seems to be down as well?

Hmmm... yes it is, I wonder if there is a problem with Comast DNS, the logs say it could not connect to the servers? Maybe I'll add the Google public DNS servers in to my config.

Nah, it isn't a problem with your ISP's DNS.

You can always setup your own server like I have ... http://www.wxmesg.com/
Your data will then come directly from the NWS and not a second source.
