  • It looks really hard to break electronics with human touch ESD. Maybe it's because the cheap electronics don't have small enough circuitry to be as vulnerable? Good protective design and grounding? Perhaps what they taught me in college about ESD on old computers just isn't as relevant to today, but I'd still take precautions just because the parts I want to use today are expensive.

  • When I was working at Microsoft I saw someone fry their computer inserting additional ram. That was actually kind of funny, you would think a person working at Microsoft would have enough sense on the risk of electro static. The rug in that building was so bad, I was shocked on just about every door handle I touched every single day.

  • I've never worn a static strap. I've never shocked a pc or any component to death, i usually rest my forearms on the case before i touch anything inside/while i'm touching things inside. If i see you wearin' a static strap and you're not working on a ridiculously expensive PC or server i'm gonna call you names.

  • This is why I keep my cats away from my PC. They'll want to rub themselves against it or even get close to it, my PC not only risks getting a static shock that basically turns it off and back on, but some fur that my cats shed can find it's way into the PC case and could probably cause some damage. Also I don't know if my PC will blow up or if I'll get horribly shocked one day if static gets to my PC
