I'm sure I lived then, and still haven't conquered Morse. GM0SCW Bob.
I remember it well!

Melted cubes may re-appear, again, later, at different locations in the freezer.
I remember cycle 21 well. 5 watts terrene wide. Those were good days and im sure the cycles from before that were amazing!
But that one missed earth, as the vast majority of them do. Relatively speaking, we're a small target. But like a 500-year flood, it's a matter of when, not if, one will hit.
re: "And I wonder about all the unshielded electronics in cars, aircraft, PCs, hospitals, factories, etc."
Long lines, higher latitudes. Those are the common denominators that spell "trouble".
e = -L * di/dt and the sine of the Latitude.
The thing people fail to understand about 500 year floods is that there is a 50% probability that one will happen during any 250 year period.
Better concentrate on using tree rings... the ice in Greenland is melting.
Oh, wait.... I remember now. That's a hoax according to one non-authoritative source. The ice isn't really melting. That's just your over active imagination making you think it's melting.
And a 1/500 chance in any given year.
