Solar Flares of Doom

Got some cell phone crackle today?

NASA and the NOAA are reporting the eruption of a massive solar flare that has the potential to disrupt or inconvenience virtually all wireless communications on the sunlit portion of the earth for the next 11 days. The effects will range from slightly crackly cell phones to wonky satellite TV to GPS receivers that don't work at all.

Don't say that nobody warned you.
