Donít Fret Over Sundayís Magnetic Storm
Geek.com ^ | 13 Mar 2018 | S Mlot

No, a massive geomagnetic storm will not hit Earth on March 18.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) refuted reports that a substantial storm will disrupt telecommunication systems over the weekend. ...Monday’s misguided news coverage—highlighting potential effects like headaches, dizziness, and sleep disturbances—appears to be the result of a simple misunderstanding.

Disturbances are rated from least (G1) to most (G5) extreme. G1 storms, like the one due on Sunday, occur about 2,000 times every 11 years—or once every two days. So there’s really nothing to worry about.

At least it’ll give your cable company an excuse for poor reception.

I’ll fret if I want to, and there’s nothing NOAA can do to stop me.

Years ago, I worked at a cable company on their internet offering. We had periodic, spontaneous reboots of the routers from time to time, with no personnel at that site, no power interruption, just one of them would reboot.

Cisco Systems blamed it on “alpha particle radiation”.

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/field-notices/200/fn25994.html

SEU failures are often caused by the following:

Alpha particles emitted by radioactive packaging and wafer processing materials on synchronous random-access memory (SRAM) and dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) products.

Thermal neutron from cosmic radiation of energy less then 15ev.

Terrestrial high energy cosmic particles, neutrons, protons, pions and muons.

And do not overlook global cooling, circa 1970’s.

Just another facet of climate change.

The local cable company has been monkey-wrenching the system for the last two weeks, with video and Internet transmission upsets, so what is one more week of upsets?

To: right way right

From product reviews...
1. Include warning notes not to hold cell phone next to ears while wearing the cap (radiation bouncing inside the skull under the cap).

2. Not to wear the cap if the source of radiation is located lower than the person wearing the cap, ex: lower floors with WiFi routers.

3. Provide the number of washes before cap’s shielding ability is reduced.
