Call for Help is doing a bit tomorrow on building your own PC. Since this is exactly what I am about to embark upon myself, I decided to read the guide over, and try and catch the show for the first time in ages (I dislike their new timeslots. 9am is too damned early, and 3pm, is General Hospital time. My mom watches, not me. But I digress...)
Anyways, containted therein is the handiest piece of advice I've ever seen:
"The parts you'll handle are sensitive to humidity and static electricity. Don't build a PC while wearing wool socks and walking on the carpet, or while standing in a puddle."
