Static shock?

Author Static shock?
So I've just noticed when I go from my computer over to my modular I'm getting a small shock when I touch my eurorack case. Once I discharge its fine. Any ideas?

When I'm working with electronics sensitive to static electricity, I keep 'Toots' the cat outside the room. This follows an incident when she brushed against me as I loaded an eeprom into an old synth, wiping the eeprom in the process.

I should have had an earthing strap on - lesson learned.
may have been the synthetic carpet. those are a great source of static.
Could be that your euro setup or computer is floating, maybe you dont have earth connection in the mains?
