I sometimes use the One Hand Rule. Keep one hand touching the case (which grounds you) while you work.

Ok, I'm going to just steal this thread for a second. I'm in the same situation as basebalplyr, except I have nothing but carpet flooring with the exception of the kitchen and washroom. Would I have to work on the tile kitchen floor or could I possibly work on my computer on my desk?

Um, Yellowsnowman, ive taken computer hardware in and out of computers before. It's not like you were the first to say that. My brother has built one with his friend and he told me long before you did so please spare me.

OK, I just have to chime in here..

Do you all relize what your arguing about? A stupid anti static strip and where you heard it from.. Towel on table blah blah blah. The sky is blue, no it's not, it's clear. And the point of spelling,, Thats just dumb to bring up.

I'm not a great speller, but lets analize this.

Just pointing stuff out like how childish this is arguing on something so silly. get a real arguement then throw the punches.
