I have been working inside computers for a long time and I have never once used or owned a wrist band. I have never fryed anything. All you need to do is touch a metal part of the case every so often and you should be fine.
Well, it is better to teach him the corect was of doing things and let him figure out on his own how far he indeed needs to go in regards to precautions. I never wear a static strap, just try to lean on the case. Or I just ground myself once in a while, whenever I pick up a new peice to put in. Static yes is highly overrated, but why risk it? Better safe than sorry. Even though it is a gay saying, it is more than true.

Also, all the rooms in my house are on carpet, or lanolium(spelling)... so...?? I have my socks & shoes off... Should i take off my shirt maybe? Shirts build static electricity too right?
You don't need an anti-static band, just remove all clothing and you'll be OK.

I couldn't resist not commenting on it.

On a serious note, you can just ground yourself by touching the metal surface of your computer case. Make sure that you leave all the parts inside the anti-static container until you're ready to install them.

Do you have a Jade Green color car?

No, your screen name is JDGreen. Thought you had a Jade Green Supra.

Just a guess. Not a lot of car manufacturers actually have Jade Green. Actually, I think Toyota is the only one that has Jade Green.

Interesting... Never knew that. Not a big car fan. Although I would like to put a body kit, and some nice rims on my 98 contour. It would look nice, but im too cheap for that. Just built a new comp anyway, so my ***=broke.
