    You mean from yourself? Touch a metal object...

    There are also anti-static gloves you can buy...

    ..... meeeeehhhhh... is grey area.

    In theory, you should be fine as long as you are constantly touching (or get one of them shitty little wrist straps) a metal part of the case. This puts you at the same electrical potential the parts and case.You can usually get away with this.

    This is where things get.... into the iffy area. I don't trust the above method. I want the power supply plugged in, that way the case is grounded (and by the laws that be, I am then grounded when I touch the case). This generaly isn't recomended officialy though, becuase now there is some power in the case, even though you have the power off. If your working on the motherboard, then this is a bad idea, as you should never have a power supply running without a load. Other than that... I don't care and do it anyway.


    I guess I should probably reccomend you the top one. That is... the A+ sanctioned way. Other little things help. Choose your working enviornment as one that wouldn't have as much static potential. No long carpet and such. Also wearing rubber soled shoes help. Wear a wrist strap if your not comfortable holding the case with one hand or laying your forearm on it all the time. umm... go l33t |\|34|<|<1d.... yeah. *cough* anyway... you get the idea.

    Don't forget to avoid surfaces such as carpet.
