BoFH versus GPS

Everyone who has ever manned a helpdesk (or called one) knows the Bastard Operator From Hell: a powerhungry individual who dislikes his customers and does everything to get them off the phone with any lame excuse he can come up with.
One famous example of an excuse why someone's computer is slow to boot up is: "sun spots".

Seems like that is actually a reasonable answer as to why your GPS receiver loses its fix.
