Static Electricity

Posted by SpiceWare, in Monitor, Treadmill Desk 17 June 2016 · 840 views

One problem that crops up with treadmills is static electricity .  I've experienced it and for the most part the only thing that happened was a small zap when I touch the aluminum frame of my keyboard  - basically I was grounding myself through the USB port on my KVM.
