I have a _very_ expensive computer in the room above where I am
going to run my tesla coil.
I haven't run it yet because I'm afraid it might damage it.
The computer is connected to a network, phone and cable TV
Could the network act as an antenna and pick up interference?
There are three computers on the network.
Could this damage anything?
The coil is powered by a single 15KV 60 ma nst.
Would covering the ceiling with some sort of grounded mesh be
enough to protect it?
Even I know the answer to this one. Coils eat computers for breakfast. My
first coil killed a computer of mine last year. By the way keep your digital
wristwatch away form them also.
