How to Plot Typhoons

14 posts in this topic

I don’t know about ships as they sail ever sooooooo slow ;) but this site will give you the big picture and one of the best prognostic tools for pilots:


Wx Prog


You can get here from the typhoon 2000 site.
 

We do get the current/forecast station weather synopsis, predicted wind speed/directions, etc. from the paid service provider for flight planning…

Agreed!

 

It was sad that in a knee-jerk reaction to Ondoy, the President thought fit to remove the head of PAGASA from his post for 'not warning everyone.'  Yet I knew the typhoon was coming, by following this site, and watched its late course alteration to pass just north of Manila.  I was able to tidy up loose items and minimize any damage.  At the time I was so incensed that I nearly sent Malacanang the URL link.

 

I have this site as one of my home page tabs on my web browser.

 

While I would love for this forum to have the credit for that, if it were not for Michael Padua providing his site Typhoon 2000, which offers the RSS feeds we import, members here probably wouldn't learn of Typhoons any earlier than anyone else. 

 

If you folks feel as though Typhoon 2000 has assisted you and / or your family in staying safe, please consider donating - even a small amount, to help Mr. Padua defray the costs of keeping his site online. I assure you, I know what it costs for someone to keep a site like that online. You can donate to his site, by following THIS LINK.

      Don't know how long this has been an issue, but over the last few months Netflix and Amazon movies have been buffering, lately it has become annoying so I started looking into it.   I am in the US by the way, but think this could be an international problem. I am with Comcast Infinity and should have 20mb service with a Motorola SB6121 modem 6 to 7 years old.   This is not a rented modem from Xfinity, I own it. I have avg of 3.2 download and around 1 upload.   I contacted tech support and they were pretty good on the phone, but emphasized that this is not their modem so speeds are not guaranteed. After 20 minutes of on the phone resetting things, removing router from system they declared my modem is the problem and they want to send me one of theirs. At $10 month rental. I don't trust them but cannot seem to find a way to tell if it is the modem and cannot seem to find a way to test it.   Any thoughts on this or websites would be appreciated.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace
