Anti static bracelets

I'd been getting an unpleasant feeling in my hand when using my wacom tablet.  I couldn't put my finger on what kind of sensation it was, other than unpleasant.  I tried cleaning the surface of the tablet and wearing a thin cotton glove.  When I complained about it to my ever-sensible friend Midori, she told me her architect husband had been getting the same thing.  She figured the tablet was generating a magnetic field, and to counteract it she gave him an antistatic bracelet from Japan to wear and it solved the problem.  So she took me to Daiso toonie store in Richmond.  I bought two of them and the problem has been solved. I think you're supposed to wear a few of them judging from the pictures on the packages, so since they're pretty and only $2 each, I'm going to get a few more.  I'm very relieved because I use the tablet more or less nonstop for my work and I was afraid I was going to have to stop using it.
