From TWC Archive
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Hey, I'm TWCKelby.

Hi, my name is Kelby and I'm the owner / operator / sysadmin of TWC Archive. My expertise is the IntelliStar 1, IntelliStar 2 Jr, and TWC overall from 2014 through today. I started this wiki to help preserve the history of the fandom and the channel, and I hope you'll join the rest of the community helping preserve it as well!

I only became a fan and joined the TWC community in 2014, but I'm trying to make up for lost time. The IS1 is my favorite Star unit, particularly with the 2008 graphics revision.

Got questions about the site? Leave a message on my talk page!

Our local forecast

I currently receive TWC through Blue Ridge Communications, a small regional cable MSO in eastern Pennsylvania. This region was also lucky enough (until 2022-05-01) to carry Weatherscan.
