Is there a solar storm or something?
Yesterday my cell phone had a weird glitch. It hung up with a white screen and all lights on; didn't come back when I pulled and reinstalled the battery either.
A few hours later the phone powered up, but I couldn't pull my phonebook records out of it. It responded to some AT commands (+MODE, +CIND etc) but not others (+CPBS, +CPBR). I reflashed the firmware, restored my phonebook from a backup and it came back to life. Never seen a KRZR do that before (and I've had 4 or 5 of them in the last 5 years).
Fast forward to today... I'm sitting at my desk, reading good old GlockTalk. All of a sudden I get the Blue Screen of Death, the computer tries to reboot and says: "BEEP - BEEP - BEEP".*
*Translation from ComputerSpeak:
All alone in the moonlight
I can dream of the old days
Life was beautiful then.
Sure enough, one of my memory sticks went completely dead. Fortunately, I still have 5 of them left so the computer is chugging along with 20 measly gigs of RAM.
Am I just unlucky, or is there some solar storm going on this weekend? :dunno:
Have a great gun carryin' Kenpo day
Yup! It's been quiet for the past 2 months or so, but we have a 'fat one' turning our way...
Another great resource:
And for "Real Time" info:
Use the K-Indices for what erupted
Use the A-Indices for what we are "feeling"
At least that is what I have been able to learn about the whole process :cool:
Well, that explains it. :wavey:
Fortunately, the same exact memory is still in stock at my local store. And the prices have halved since, so I'm only out 20 bucks.
Also, after 2 years I finally noticed that my RAM was running slower than it could (1066 instead of 1333MHz). Think of all those clock cycles I have wasted! :shocked:
