Static Electristy Protecion

I wear a bracelet and work on wooden surfaces. I also live by the coast so I think I am fine

Honestly I didn't do much more than "touch the doorknob first and be careful"; this has worked fine with the xbox and several PC's.

They also make anti-static work pads, which are also very nice, since everything you are working on is sitting on top of it and is protected.

Honestly, sounds fine. I don't even use wrist straps, and I have a crazy cat that insists on rubbing against my legs when I'm working (which usually results in her getting booted across the room)

I took an ESD course a while back, and the guy there showed statistics and scientific proof that faults can lay latent in a component for up to 5 years. I know that sounds whacked, but thats what he said.
I allways use a strap and a mat.
ESD is scary shite.
