Worldwide computer problems today.

Hey everyone,
Expect problems today. problems with your internet connection, problems with your phone, problems with your computer; basically problems with power and communications. Why you may ask... because:

GIANT SUNSPOTS: Astronomers can't remember the last time this happened: two Jupiter-sized sunspots crossing the face of the sun at the same time. They're intense sources of solar activity and big enough to see with the unaided eye--but never look directly at the sun.

A coronal mass ejection (CME) is en route to Earth, due to arrive later today or tomorrow. Geomagnetic storming is possible when it one arrives.

If you go to http://www.spaceweather.com/ you can sign up to have them call you when the auroras appear over you hometown and your brain is about to be microwaved.
