A long time ago, I had a client that told me that he could not wear any kind of electronic watch. It would stop running, and the battery would start leaking.
He had some sort of wind up mechanical watch. (I was about 6 yrs old, but the conversation fascinated me, so my details may be off a little)
Anyway, I just got off the phone with a certain John (@#$%^) Francis, who has some trouble with electronics, and it seems that his troubles may have a similarity to the story from way back when I was about 6 yrs old.

Anyway, do you, or anybody you know have electronics troubles, that has a physical (Not mental!) source?
