    Jut a heads up my fellow players... it has been reported that a large solar flare is going to be reeking havoc on our electronics... it was let loose on the 2nd and should hit us around the 4th. Soooo if you find your game a bit slow or con not so great .... dont yell at the computer or the Dev they will be in the same boat.

    It's not that big of a flare, only a m-class, if it effects UO it's just because the devs are all outside watching the pretty northern lights that'll come from it :)

    Unless UO runs on like CB radio... I don't think you need worry about solar flares.

    Well ..... the last time we meaning the earth got hit with a large flare back in the 80s it took out the northern canada power for a few days ...seems it fried the power companys.. it was also felt in northern new york. The guys over here at JPL are saying its highly unlikely we will get a major but they cant rule it out ether... It can interupt satalite signals .
