oh, static electricity?

I suppose you're talking about grounding yourself. Touch something that's metal and unpainted to ground yourself every once in a while.

Yeah, or if you are really concerned about it take off your socks and work on a hardwood floor. You could also buy a grounding strap that you wear around your wrist

OK, now I'm scarred for life. Thanks, Gord...

I make sure to ground myself multiple times while I work, especially if I get up and come back.

hmm. I'm usually not wearing socks unless it's really cold or something. I never thought to suggest taking your socks off.

Sometimes I braid my hair to keep it away from the stuff.
