So iron for you, too. Interesting.
It's true about the computer thing. Know that for a fact. My computer basically endured about 60 jolts from me in a couple of days and it caused
the CPU cooling unit to fry and pop. Nearly destroyed my rig. It's the first computer I've ever damaged--usually keyboards and mice are the
things that go. If you have that problem, I've found that Saitek Eclipse II keyboards actually endure me well. The keys have a kind of rubber matte
beneath them and are mechanical and I think that combination is why. I was going through keyboards every 1-3 months previously. I've had two
Saitek. My eldest is using my old one and I picked up a new one. The old one is still working and is almost 7 years old now. They are more
expensive than a base keyboard but they are infinitely less expensive over time because they don't die. I also use a high quality gaming mouse as
well and they endure. Haven't experienced long boot ups. Like I said, no experience with computer death from it until recently, lol.
check for malware and do a disk cleanup (in accessories) to see if it helps speed up the boot.
Try getting a fly away spray for your hair--you know the stuff for kid hair? An ionizing dryer and brushes are supposed to help, too. I just end up
drying my hair til it's still damp and then binding it to let it dry the rest of the way. Coiled CFL bulbs for your lighting. Can't emphasize that
enough. They are the only bulbs that survive me and they cut down on energy use, too. Win-win for us.
I've had blue electrical arcs get emitted from shocks so know what you're talking about and believe you. I will never forget the first time that
happened when I shocked my ignition on my car. My ex-husband turned white as a sheet, lol. The shocks can be pretty harsh. I actually had an
instance where the crack from it was so loud that the woman from the next aisle came over to check and make sure I was okay, lol. I've broken
plastic crystal faucet covers from jolts passing through to the metal. Zapped water while washing my hands, wood (wth, right?) and have even shocked
a bunch of bananas which prompted the most humiliating response from a woman next to me. It's dumb. I always find it irritating when people start
making superhero jokes because they just don't get that this isn't a super power. It's a disability. Well, maybe it is kind of a superpower
because for a while my ex was telling the kids that if they didn't behave, I'd touch them. He had them convinced that I could zap at will, lol. He
was kind of a jerk.

Can you find out which it is? That'd be great if it could resolve the issues. And thank you for the clarification on the tvs--although I'm not
down with facial recognition on tvs, at least I'll know that if I'm stuck getting one, it'll work for me, lol.
