    Post Just FYI - Coronal Mass Ejection

    We are going to experience a Coronal Mass Ejection from Mr. SUN AKA Old Sol today.
    They (the experts) are not expecting it to be any sort of huge Earth Frying event but, it may affect GPS, Cell phone & Internet, & Satellite TV - to a lesser degree.
    So...if you notice anything odd, strange, or wacky today on DefensiveCarry (aside from the usual sporadically weird member postings) - Blame it on the SUN GOD "RA."

    It should only really affect wireless communications if anything. Members on other continents might experience issues if their connection to the DC servers happens to bounce off a satellite somewhere, but those of us in the good ol' US of A shouldn't notice anything on wired connections.

    Not the first one in recent history. It is causing havoc with HF communications as well. oh well guess that means I have to turn off my Ham radio and do some of the honey do list.

    I'm not worried about any of that whatsoever. (So long as the wind doesn't unravel my tin foil suit I'm wearing today)
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I prefer to think of it as a sun "fart".

    The sun farts, the resultant blast is inconvenient and stinks a bit, but other than being an annoyance, its not that big of a deal.

    As far as I know, a fart has never killed anyone. I may have thought a time or two that I wouldn't live through one, like when stuch in an elevator going up 60 floors or so with a person farting like a machine gun, but in each case I managed to live through it... so far.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
