    Just wondering if this solar storm is harmful to our computer systems? The wife just phoned, shes a woman by the way , and said I should turn of my laptop and cell phone, she droned on about satellites and other stuff which went over my head, I stoped listening to her a long time and have gotten into a habit of shaking my head up and down and saying "Yeah". Anybody got any info. Thanks.

    The worse case scenario is we will have disruption from our technological toys. Computers, TV cable, Cell phones and the like.

    The storm will can affect these toys for a few days.

    Logic says make sure you're grounded and all your lines have filters AS THEY SHOULD ALREADY!

    Forget the solar storm; let's all just make sure we're ready with our shoes tied and jackets zipped up when the UFO comes out from behind the comet to take us back home.

    yeah, but the real question is - do you have enough quarters in your pocket for the toll booth on the way....

    Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
    I could see the city lights
    Wind was blowing, time stood still
    Eagle flew out of the night
    He was something to observe
    Came in close, I heard a voice
    Standing stretching every nerve
    Had to listen had no choice
    I did not believe the information
    I just had to trust imagination
    My heart going boom boom boom
    "Son," he said "Grab your things,
    I've come to take you home."

    Anyone happen to notice today was a horrible day in traffic and maybe this storm had something to do with it?

    Not only have things been horribly for my sites, earnings have been down, traffic is down and to top that off I'm having intermittent problems with websites, off and on. hmmm...

    Any relation here?
