Default Handling cards.. How? - Quick reply pls

I'm going to remove a modem from a computer I just bought. Where can I store it while I'm not using it?

By the book, it should be kept in an anti-static bag (like the ones that new components are packed in), and in a box out of harms way

I have stuff laying around on desks, nothing has hurt it (yet)

Technically you're supposed to do all the anti static stuff. I think a box is fine.

I usually just save those Anti-Static bags when I buy new components. But I think you'll be fine if you just put in in a box, and dont put it near any other electronics.
