>What a difference a day can make. On Saturday, Sept. 2nd, sunspot AR2673 was an unremarkable speck largely ignored by forecasters. On Sunday, Sept. 3rd, it underwent a furious transformation.

So how much electric equipment will be taken out this time. And will it be enough to hinder or slow the progress of technological hell we are headed for?

Will we have an "Carrington Event" like they did in 1859?

I thought most of the major data storage sites were protected from EMPs and the like. This would interupt the bread and circus for awhile and destroy the global economy though if we actually get a Carrington Event.

Sadly most are.
But I wish certain datacentres by certain companies wasn't.
I also wish my computer was guarded, but I never got around to building a Faraday cage for it...

Yo, if we are all trying to improve ourselves and fight for the same ideology, we could set up a plan of action if something big happens, like the fall of the civilized world.

Yeah that could be a start, but we may need to make a plan and get a strategic area, if something happens things will be hard.

Black sun is a good symbol for the community in general.
Also, before you start making symbols for irl shit, try to think ahead so shit doesn't end up Kekistani-tier.

You mean, we should not make it appealing to normie?
Well we just need it to look "official"

depends on the context
"kekistan" flooded irl because autism and ultimately it was meant to do that, given the Pepe/Kek craze
Same for the four of clubs. It was born during the zero hour paranoia buildup on /pol/, and remained a symbol to use "just in case" because the consensus deemed it so.
