Homeland Security apparently doesn't want you to know..

the security level.

see what i mean

<a style='color:green' href=''>low</a> <img src=''><BR>

<a style='color:blue' href=''>GUARDED</a> <img src=''><BR>

<a style='color:yellow' href=''>ELEVATED</a><img src=''><BR>

<a style='color:orange' href=''>HIGH</a> <img src=''><BR>

<a style='color:RED' href=''>SEVERE</a> <img src=''><br>

actually i should clarify doesn't want you to know, i've emailed them called several times dating back to July 2004 that if we ever get a RED alert they will show normal yellow, i figure this is a good community to post this to, maybe if it's more than one voice... they'll findly change, it.

I supposedly talked to their IT department already and even emailed them an image I made based on their's. please mention on podcast so this updated quickly, 18 months is a long time.

all has to do is update one image:

and to clarify does have the right severe.gif in case terror alert ever becomes red again.

i emailed folks at letting them know i was going to post this at podcast forums to draw mass attention and mount pressure for them to change this.

reminding them that i had even created the correct image and sent it to them after talking to them on the phone back in october 04.

how is this a PEBKAC situation

In reply to: PEBKAC

PEBKAC - "Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair". Refers to a non-existent computer problem that is actually just incompetence by the user. Allegedly, some users have ignorantly but helpfully told each level of technical support that the previous level "suspected a PEBKAC situation."

basically's terror alert is a hack of except they have their own graphic, but when they made the graphic's they likely accidently saved elevated over severe.gif

whether having terror alerts are stupid or not if you are going to have them and are taxes have to go to agencies like, they should be more competent
