The sunspot responsible for that last one just popped off another bubble due to arrive on the 11th, smaller than the last one.

Same here. I'm in Illinois and my lady is in Cali and the phones are acting quite weird -- dropouts, a weird metallic ringing, and weirdest, where one of us can hear the other saying "hello, hello?"

I was just worried about my DAW being I've been working on it, but we had no power company issues here...but my area does seem to have quite a few outages. When I lived in the Bay Area there wasn't many power failures.
One day the big one will arrive, then we'll see :shock:

Im in South East of England. Pretty rural area to but we covered in phone masts. Never had problems before which is why we came to the strange kinda conclusion of this solar storm. Some people seem pretty worried about it.

I can just see it now, one day the end of world will be going on and we'll all be trying to get through to complain about our phones not workings whilst turning off monitors, disconnecting pcs n keyboards trying to desperately save our DAWs. Its important to have priorities in an emergency situation.

And...

There's another one coming behind that too, from the same spot, around about the 12th :P

To generate AC current, we use something called an alternator. This is an electrical generator of sorts that is used to generate AC. Here, a loop of wire is spun inside a magnetic field and this will then ‘induce’ current along the wire (electromagnetism). This is how something like a wind turbine works: the wind is captured by the propellers and this is then used in order to rotate wire and thereby generate AC electricity

Batteries provide direct current and so too do solar panels. Solar panels that are used to power appliances are known as photovoltaic. These work by using an arrangement of electrons that get excited by light (photons). When those electrons get excited, they start to move and that is what we call a current.

The only problem? This energy is largely useless. When built into a small solar light, it’s fine, because that light uses DC. But in order to be able to send energy to your home to then plug into, you are going to need an invert.
