On the weather front, I wonder if the addition of the new tabs is an indication of revamped weather maps soon? To me, the maps look fine as they are. They are probably the best CNNI has ever had.
The tabs almost remind me of the "connect line" from CT'W. That's probably more just because of the red and white. I think they look better than the previous tabs.
EDIT - Yes, it would take a very brave person to kill off the cloud loop, Charles. They look fab!

I got the idea from that to move all those posts in here. Hopefully people find it in the weather thread here. If not, I'll change it back.
We've already been talking about it in the graphics thread. That new weather strap looks a lot like Domestic's.
After they read the forum, I was told by someone (who would know) that as far as they know, Lola is just taking a break and will be back. This was a couple of days before G-man made any mention of her, so a return could be sooner, rather than later. Fingers crossed, anyway.
I do hope Lola returns someday. Hope you get a reply, garh.

The graphics do seem to have improved. Of course, it looks a lot better with the streams moving.
Im still a wee bit undecided if I like the new graphics!! I see though Jenny must be tall or taller than the likes of Jen and Mari as Jenny's head covers some of the new graphics sometimes. I didn't get a reply the G Man re Lola, I see though he must be away on Vacation as Jenny is doing Quest and 2nd Edition International Desk. Just a question does the G man only do those 2 shows or does he sometimes start his weather hit on Finns WN??

I haven't seen Al Jazeera in a long time, when they started they had ex Sky woman Steff all the time.

Al Jazeera's are better than BBC World's, but still not as good as CNNI's. AJE does two weather updates per hour lasting about three minutes. Sometimes, they have real weather people doing it (either Steff Gaulter or Everton Fox), or they'll just do automated weather like France 24. Steff and Everton seem to do their updates on a script like BBC's, but at least they don't talk like robots and they are slightly more captivating.

I don't like the way they spend half the time looking at the wall and talking to it. Much prefer CNNI's contact with the viewer instead of the wall.
And yes, I have had a rear view mirror fall off.
