I have experienced CH at times, which seemed to
correlate with longer times spent at the PC. Also,
I have noted that during those times I am either
programming or playing a new, "action" video game.
The later is important because those types of vid
games require:

1) Great deal of attention and focus.
2) Rapid eye movements.
3) Hand-eye coordination.


1) Stress.
2) Flashing screens (light source).

Programming, however, is not nearly as intense,
altough a great deal of focus, and some stress
is inherent, which seems to scalate with the
number of bugs the program has.

To note the other post regarding TV,
I have noticed that as well. What I have also
noted is when it seems that the CH attack is
triggered - Flashing screens, pretty much like
a strobe light. Has anyone noticed if strobe lights
trigger their CH?

Also, I was wondering if such triggering was due to
O3 (ozone) emitions by the PC, or TV. Additionally,
I have noted, in looking back at my daily records,
that it seems CH are triggered when utilizing
the two devices above noted as new, i.e.: I replace
a mother board, add I/O, vide, sound, Lan cards.
This makes me wonder if O3 eitions are greatest
from new/newer electronic components.
