I haven't done much monkeying around with hardware since the days of
discrete components and TTL.

Do I need to worry about static electricity (seems to be a lot in my
office) when installing RAM and a PSU in a server? If so, will grounding
myself temporarily by grabbing a handful of chassis be enough or do I need
to buy a wrist strap or...

Thanks guys and happy new year to Bill and everybody on the list!
