I've had this happen a few times: My cell phone is sitting just in front of my secondary monitor. Suddenly, the screen starts twitching and contorting (I think it has some poor shielding). A second later, the phone rings. I wouldn't expect a cell phone signal to be strong enough to disrupt the electron gun of a CRT, but apparently it is.
This monitor has been known to twitch at other times, too. I often take it as an indicator of sunspot/solar wind activity.Posted by mike at December 29, 2003 08:38 AM | Hardware , Weather | TrackBack
