    According to the article that Gary posted (and confirmed by other sources),
    the last solar maximum occurred in 2001. I wasn't using GPS at that time,
    but I don't recall hearing anything about massive outages back then. Still,
    this should reinforce the need to have a backup for any important system -
    especially one as critical as navigation.
