This is off topic as can be, but calling the service has never actually 
put me in touch with anybody that knew what I was talking about. so...

However, your sig makes me lodge a conplaint about a service thats has 
apparently been discontinued, eg the access to current conditions 
at "KCKB", or for that matter any other net station.

I have a system monitor called gkrellm that has a weather plugin, and its 
last valid connection was July 28th, 11:53 pm. I found it quite handy, 
and since it was a totally automated service, self updating at about 30 
minute intervals, saw no financial advantage for NWS/you in shutting off 
that service.  Can it not be restored? I believe the problem lies in the 
DNS lookup of KCKB or any other of the 4 letter station codes used for 
this service nationwide. You can PM me at gheskett at shentel dot net
