Solar Storms, Solar Tsunami

We are in a cycle of increased solar activity. Expect solar storms to affect your internet/cellphone/TV and other satellite or electrical equipment.

In the event of a Solar Tsunami, expect all communications to be interrupted for an indefinite period.

Don't expect any help from your local power company or telecom.

They aren't ready for an event of this magnitude.

Get out the sunblock and work on your tan.

Take time to read a book.

You might have to do it by candlelight.

I just read an article in the 11 October issue of InformationWeek ( entitled; "The Wrong Protection" by Greg Shipley.

In a nutshell, Mr. Shipley surveys the problems we currently have with cyber attacks and the lack of protection in all operating systems.

There is too much info in this article to give it any in depth treatment here. Mr. Shipley did an excellent job of highlighting the problems.

Unfortunately, the solutions are going to be drastic, if we are to maintain any secure systems.

If it all comes unglued, what are you going to do?

What Glitch?

Wonder if any of our latest 'accidents' are really accidents or sabotage?

I do, after all, it's too easy to override systems in this day and age with a computer.

Do you think you'll be informed if it's a glitch or an intentional act?

Don't bet on it.

Yes, it's a technical term for an electrical malfunction.

It's also the title of my latest novel.

The novel's about cyberwar that spins out of control.

As in conventional warfare, you don't always get the outcome you want.

Sometimes, there's a glitch.

I'll be posting more about the novel and my writing efforts in the future.

Which is where we better hope that the threat of cyberwar remains, in the future.

No one is prepared for what will happen when one breaks out.

Pray that we never see that day.
