Thursday I read that because of (solar flares) there could be intermitent outages of electonic devices.......such as GPS, internet connections and the like on Friday and Saturday.......

That being said, yesterday I noticed that my wireless router that has 4 lights on the front of it had 2 of them that were blinking like mad kind of shivering if you will......now that is strange. A few people called and asked me if I was having internet problems I said no but told them about the solar flares and not to worry that by Monday it should all be over I guess....

So I thought I would tell you so in case your computer told when you go on the internet that it couldn't connect just wait a few minutes it can come and go.....and not to worry......Now if Monday comes and it is still going on then that is something else......lol

Just like the sun spots I think it is just one of those things that might cause a problem but for something like GPS I don't know I would hate to have someone go for groceries and end up in the ocean or something.....lol

In the spring it seems like the sunspots happen just when my story is on it happens for a few days then it goes away......I know something was going on for a minute yesterday because the lights on my routher have never done that before....but unless everyone in the world tried to get on the internet at exact same time and not been able to get on I think that would have caused more problems than the sun.....lol......
