Atlantic hurricane season begins June 1st, per National Hurricane Center


History teaches that a lack of hurricane awareness and preparation are common threads among all major hurricane disasters. By knowing your vulnerability and what actions you should take, you can reduce the effects of a hurricane disaster.

Hurricane hazards come in many forms, including storm surge, heavy rainfall, inland flooding, high winds, tornadoes, and rip currents. The National Weather Service is responsible for protecting life and property through issuance of timely watches and warnings, but it is essential that your family be ready before a storm approaches. Furthermore, mariners should be aware of special safety precautions when confronted with a hurricane.

Download the Tropical Cyclone Preparedness Guide (PDF) or follow the links for more information. But remember, this is only a guide. The first and most important thing anyone should do when facing a hurricane threat is to use common sense.


Get ready folks !

You'll hate Google's experimental Chrome UI, but so will phishers


Phishers might have a tougher time hooking victims if a new feature introduced into the experimental strain of Google's Chrome browser makes it into a future full release.

The "origin-chip" feature cleans up Chrome's omnibox or address bar by removing lengthy URLs and replacing them with just the domain name shorn of "http://" and "http://. There's also the "origin chip" that produces the full URL.

Apple introduced a similar arrangement in Safari on iOS 7.

Google has tested the feature in beta versions of Chrome, but users didn't care for it and it was subsequently relegated to a default "off" state in later updates to the experimental Chrome fork, "Canary".

Curious problem with computer fan

I already know nothing is touching my fans, because I've thoroughly inspected my case. There are NO wires or cables anywhere near my fans.

When I start up my box, sometimes I hear a rattle emanating from the fan area. After the fan/computer warms up a bit, it goes away completely. My box is not overheating whatsoever.

Could a bearing be bad ? Could the fan be getting clogged with dust ? Thanks once again.


Hey guys, FYI, we have a Weather Watchers group on DU


In the WW group, I try to post a daily map of warnings, watches, etc. for the US. All are welcome to discuss weather-related topics.

DISCLAIMER: Obviously, don't rely on WW for your urgent weather needs.

Have a lovely day !
