So there is an Army web portal called "Army Knowledge Online," or given our love for the TLA, AKO.

On AKO, there is a feature that lets you display weather on the home page when you log in. This feature is powered by Weatherbug.com.

Once you enter the location information for where you want to know the weather, you get another page with the current weather and tomorrow's weather. If you want to see the 7-day forecast, you can click on the helpfully-provided link, which takes you to Weatherbug.com itself.

Except that it doesn't, because Weatherbug.com is blocked by the Army Reserve. I'd rant about it if I was actually surprised by it.

i feel: amused amused

I work for a government contractor. Today we found that AccuWeather was newly blocked. Yeah, sure seems like a bastion of webmail, doesn't it? (That was the stated reason.) So the timing of this post made me laugh.

Remember, if it makes sense, the Army won't do it :)
