Dangerous solution to no grounding?
When I moved into my new (but older) house, I noticed there were hardly any grounding on the outlets. I guess legal code was different back in the old days, but it really did cause a problem for me in even trying to get an office to hook up a computer. Seems computers won't run even if you use a 3-prong outlet, if the ground is not there.
My father bought me a few two-to-three prong extender gimmicks to use, but I haven't bothered since I'm not sure that's wise. Basically they plug into a normal double-prong outlet, but they also come with their own ground female. There is one screw-hole which is supposed to hold it against the regular outlet, but I have also heard acts as a ground connector.
I just don't know, I haven't taken much look at details yet but I feel these things probably shouldn't even be legal?
