Did the big sun flare do anything?
2 days ago it was brought to the forums attention that a massive flare (think it might have been an X flare) was going to have a direct hit on the earth for 6 hours on the 19th.

It obviously didn't burn us to a crisp but did it do anything? and if not then does that mean that sun doom could be considered much ado about nothing?

I was sitting outside around 1:30 pm and for about 30 minutes I felt a strong heat blowing around. I mean it must have been 10 degrees hotter within that time frame. Scared me to the point that I went back in. I don't know if it was from the flare or if the sun was acting up today right before that time. Going to check it for today to see if anything happened.

We did see increased interference and resultant outages on certain radio frequencies used for data transport.

Also had a couple of older switches suddenly go bad.

Other than that, us IT folk didn't notice any MAJOR issue.

You look at the people around you, the street you stand on, the visible air you breathe, and predict more of the same. To hell with more. I want better." ~ Ray Bradbury
