I've been saying this for months, as a ham radio geek one of the first things we learn is the interaction between the ionosphere and solar cycles. It doesn't just bounce rf radiation.

are PC hard drives effected? mine ran into troubles for weeks, lots of sudden crashes, but now those issues have gone away

If it were an EMP, as is generated by solar storms, your hard drive, and everything in your pc, would be a paperweight. Laptops fare a bit better, provided they aren't plugged in at the time.
