Default Just to be on the safe side..........

Just to be on the safe side I went ahead and got an anti static mat and wriststrap. I figure I'll probably be tinkering around inside my comp more than ever here soon, so............better to be safe than sorry. LOL I know that some of you said there's no need for the mat or strap, but Im gonna use it anyway. I found the mat and strap in a kit for $15!

Anyway, there was no real point to this thread.....................just had the thought and needed to get it out. LOL
