I'm having major problems with grounding, and shocking my IE into reset. I think there are two issues.
1) The USB cables shipped with the ergodox are not carrying the external shielding all the way through (connecting a multimeter to the outside of the USB connector on either side showed they were not continuous), so the USB cables are not grounding the keyboard.
2) The PCB itself does not seem to be grounded properly - when I replaced my USB cables I was still able to shock the system into reset. However, by adding an external ground to the keyboard (via the casing screws) I can now shock the keyboard without putting it into reset.
