    >Maybe I'll set up an eBay auction

    Well, sure - if I did it on eBay, I'd have to charge money. Money that I could use to buy services

    brain:"But money can buy you lots of peanuts!"

    Commander, it didn't affect us. It was the opposite way and wouldn't have reached us anyways.

    Lightbulb Solar wind

    Actually, the dust and debree fired out by solar eruptions can affect thing here on earth. The ionised gases that eventually reach earth are normall bounced off by earths magnetic field and the ionoshpere. Some solar wind is redirected slightly to the magnetic poles to create the "nothern lights". This is the gases hitting the ionosphere and disapating their energy into visible light (among other parts of the electomagnetic spectrum).
    Solar eruptions are particularly active about every 11 years or so when the sun magnetic pole flip, causing massive upheaval on the suns surphase. A few years ago, during such a period, a large erruption occurred that was directed towards earth. Canada to be specific. Such a large outpouring of solar gases overwhelemed the earths natural magnetic field and was able to penetrate the atmosphere. Because these gases are ionic, they generate their own very small magnetic fields (which is why the earth magnetic field can normally 'bounce' them away to the poles), and moving magnetic fields generate electric current in a conductor. When the ionised gases hit the quebic power grid, it caused a massive power surge that fried a considerable amount of electronics. This is why, now they are monitoring solar eruptions so carefully.
    They are developing and have plans to launch a serieso of satelites that will continuously monitor the sorlar eruptions and be able to see them much better than the SOHO. Check a few search engines for ("space research"&&"solar eruptions") on altavista for example.

    Eruption

    Actually, I mainly got that from various documentaries on the discovery channel and a bit of my own research thrown in. Thanks for the complement though
