Only started with Perl4 and Perl5 in 1995. I was doing AWK etc for 12 years before that, and resisted switching. I've been doing OO since before C++ hit bigtime, with Objective-C and SmallTalk, so I really like the (no longer new) Perl5 OO style; and the Lispish Map style is also an old friend. What do I hack with Perl? All data that passes my way; systems monitoring scripts at $DayJob, weather data at night, and I cheat on NPR word puzzles.

Science News - Solar Flare and CME

[ #22737 ]
X-Class flare, CME -- Geomagnetic storm and possible Aurora to follow?
"AURORA ALERT: Two coronal mass ejections (movies: #1, #2) are heading toward Earth and they could spark strong auroras when they arrive on January 16th and 17th. These clouds were blasted into space by M8- and X2-class explosions above giant sunspot 720 on Jan. 15th."
- SpaceWeather.com via Ontario DXA and NASA Space Environment Center .
Other good SpaceWeather sites include Australian Space Weather Agency, NASA SEC-SEL Aurora map, SEC-SEL warning timeline, Aurora Visibility Prediction, and Canadian Real-Time Auroral Oval.

Too bad about aurora possibility, we're getting ocean-effect snow here, so I don't think I'll see it tonight. Maybe tomorrow night?
