Should we be unplugging everything in sight?
No, see my quote a few posts back.

Come down children how do you know that solar flare are not hitting us right now. If anything happens it happens no reason to lose sleep over it like my man jay from man in black said

There's always an Arquillian Battle Cruiser, or a Corillian Death Ray, or an intergalactic plague that is about to wipe out all life on this miserable little planet, and the only way these people can get on with their happy lives is that they DO NOT KNOW ABOUT IT!

I can see telecommunications being affected a bit, but I doubt this flare is in the same order of magnitude as the '89 Quebecois flare. If there's no moon waxing or waning tonight, and you don't live in a particularly light polluted area, who knows...maybe you'll catch a glimpse of some solar particles smashing into our ionosphere.

edit: 'tis warm here in NJ as well, but that's thanks to our jet stream digging deep into the gulf region.

My sig rig and expensive TV and stereo are all unplugged at home because of this. Can't be too careful.

we aren't hitting solar max till 2012 anyways, I'm sure your precious computers will survive the day. If **** hits the fan in 2012, can anyone say the human race didn't deserve it? Have we done anything positive for the earth or universe in the last 5000 years? We exploit everything we can to satisfy our own boredom and laziness, I think the world deserves a second, or I guess 5th chance according to the Mayans.

I don't think innocent people deserve what our governments have in mind for us either in the next few years. The G20 want to half their deficits by 2013? I wonder where they will try and cut their budgets? Obama is already cutting budgets for community programs, but doesn't want to make the life of financial institutions harder than it has to be, lol. What a joke, as always, the aristocrats deserve a better life, right?
