Gentlemen, I've found this discussion interesting and informative. This
household works on quantum information theory rather than engineering so
there is much for us to learn.

I must observe that if an event takes out the entire GPS system (which a
Carrington event would not do) we will have issues a great deal more
immediate and pressing than getting hyper-precise timing systems restored.

And speaking of Carrington events, how many of us have our equipment
surrounded by Faraday cages and supplied with off-grid power? Because
without those, we won't have instruments to measure T&F at home or even in
a great many labs and businesses.

Just a thought.....
