Hmmm... I just put in a 3/4 inch piece of copper pipe 5 feet long on the
back of my desk, with everything tied to it with heavy pigtails. It, in
turn, goes to my single-point station ground. I would think that the
inter-unit resistances would be low enough with this set-up that it would
effectively BE a single-point ground. am I kidding myself?
BTW I have no symptoms of grounding problems except for a hummy DVP, for
which grounding the computer, etc. seems to do zero good.
