I'm currently wearing shoes, as well as sitting on a desk chair, if that changes anything...
My other option, while not as comfortable nor clean nor well lit, would be a desk outside my room in the basement.
I haven't opened up much or touched any sensitive computer parts yet, just the RAM - which is still in it's plastic casing.
I'm just... very nervous.
Currently reading through any manuals I can find.
edit: tested quickly - touched the metal sides of the desk, and got a small zap, shuffled feet about frantically, both with and without shoes on the thin carpet, and got nothing... could also try putting plastic down?
