Jeff wayne War of the Worlds. One of my all time greats album.
They played War of the Worlds on Radio 6 yesterday. Brilliant stuff.
The solar storm actually does have an effect on us here... every time one comes up it knocks the (already iffy) wireless connection to the kitchen computer out. Although I'm sure the kitchen girls think I'm talking out my posterior when I tell them the reason...
Had 2 power cuts today, the first in the 14 months I've worked here! I've blamed the solar storms.
I am blaming the solar storm for our fire alarm going off this afternoon.... the radiation knocked out the single brain cell controlling behaviour in one of our students.... who then triggered the alarm involuntarily.....
It's a lame excuse I know, but undoubtedly better than the one the kid will come up with....
And then people start panicking over solar flares and apparently we all die. Such is life.
We are going up Winter Hill later in the hope we can see the Northern Lights, probably won't be clear though :(
My grandad bought me mine as a birthday present so i was ok with the price lol

The enormous sunspot region responsible for all the recent fuss and flares was easily visible from Earth yesterday… easily visible, that is, with the help of a natural filter provided by a New Mexico dust storm!
Well our SAN cacked itself today, throughput wise so I'm guessing our server room needs to be lead lined. Dirty MSA 2012i
