I am going all the way. I’m building a pyre from all my kit in the garden. When the flares come I shall ignite it and let all my kit burn asunder. In this way it shall be reborn the following day as a much improved system with astounding clarity, immediacy and presence. Let the ceremony commence!

How did we make it through the night?

According to Wikipedia, the frequency of solar flares varies from several per day to less than one a week, depending on the solar cycle, so they are hardly rare.

Directly above my house in SE London last night - we never normally get to see anything interesting in the night sky!


Yikes. I hope you turned your Nova off.
