Behold, the birth of Vic!
And a painful birth it is! Despite the scary warnings about electrostatic shocks, I (Drake) have to admit that I've never owned an anti-static wrist strap. In all the times I've opened up computers, it never seemed to be a problem.
Unfortunately, there is always that tiny fear in the back of my mind
that a big spark will fly from my finger and melt the motherboard, or
cause some similarly nutty disaster.
