Latest from Spaceweather:

"SUDDEN SUPER SUNSPOT: Sunspot 1024 is crackling with B- and C-class solar flares. The activity is so intense, astronomers can't seem to take a picture of the sunspot without catching a flare in action."

"Solar observers haven't seen an active region like this one in more than two years. It is big, complex, and rapidly growing."

Why dismiss this so quickly? The 7th hasn't even arrived and you're already debunking it.

Another train wreck today at Disney World where two monorails collided killing 1 person. Is it possible even B class flares can effect some areas of the globe magnetically?

Just wondering. While this is happening would it be a good idea to stay indoors?

I think the absolute worst case scenario is that the earth is scorched.
Nothing you can do about that.

But I don't think that will happen.

What I'm hoping to see is a massive blackout on Tuesday.

I have cast that prediction with several friends that need to wake up. If it happens, they'll be forced to listen. The way I put it to them was "if a massive blackout hits, for instance, New York, on Tuesday... Just remember that I'm a prophet."

We'll see.

If I put my laptop under 50 layers of tin foil will it be saved from being fried by a solar flare?

Nope but you could put a small Faraday cage over it

I have a mobile broadband connection and I’m wondering the same thing now.
At night time I have no problems great speed and no cutouts. But in the daytime I have mega slow connection speeds like it never connects and constant dropouts.

I use to just put it down to limits on the network, but who knows it could be this activity causing it.

Has it just happened lately? Mine has been fine until the past few days..and like I said, yesterday, completely useless..just sat there and blinked..the ACT light wasnt even on..wierd thing is, they said at the Sprint office, that it was dead..I guess they do an analysis from there?

Yeah, it's been the last three days or so. But it happens every so often, which is why I have always just thought it was network congestion.

If it happens again today I will call my provider and ask them about it.

Are you on a fixed or mobile connection?

Don't forget, it takes between 40-80 hours for solar material to hit the Earth, so it wouldn't get here until ... July 7th ish, and that's only if it's got the right magnetic polarity to be a geoeffective flare.

I'd suggest keeping a close on on NICT's RTMS for the next few days.

It auto reloads every 15 minutes. Leave it in a window and check it every once in a while. If the light blue representation of the magnetosphere in the top right starts turning red/white, you know we're encountering increasing densities..

Not to trouble shoot this and get off topic but I doubt its from any solar flares. What frequency is your wireless running at for your internet and what frequency is your cordless house phones running on. It could even be your neighbors but that's a main reason peoples wireless will have issues is competing gadgets running on the same frequency band waves.

For the dsl modem, they break all the time for people and normally just need to be power cycled to be fixed. A loose connection can really causes issues also though.

Now if we get some real solar action then just kiss them goodbye as they will be paper weights anyway.

I'm on a fixed connection..yea its strange, and you'd think it wouldnt be from the sun, not yet anyway..but who knows..I've heard of wierder things

The day MJ died..you'd think it would have done it then, the internet was all but shut down..I had no probs that day.
