I live in Minnesota where you can count the percent humidity on one hand in the winter. Are there any ESD suppressors for the Dsub connectors on 8-bit computers and consoles? I saw this, but I imagine the flow is backwards on some pins. Maybe just invest in a large humidifier?

I don't know of any machines built in, but It would be pretty easy to add them in on the controller side.  They are referred to as TVS Diodes.

Thanks. Should work for Ataris. I think we're probably SOL on ColecoVision and maybe Segas, which I believe have two grounds depending on state (e.g., for CV state 1 is joystick, left button and pin 8 as ground, state 2 is keypad and right button with pin 5 as ground). Although, you could use one on the CV steering wheel which only uses state 1.
