Want to do an emegency shutdown on your computer (Don't try this at home!) February 8, 2010

Posted by truthspew in Uncategorized.

Well, I was testing the accuracy of my little cheap Radio Shack Multimeter. It’s the $30 model 22-813.

I was measuring the USB voltage when I accidentally shorted to the ground connector. Boom, lights out. The computer just shut right down. Hmm, something to keep in mind. Don’t know how healthy it is for the computer though.
