    There was a story a number of years back here in Colorado about two young boys that were caught above treeline in a storm while out hiking....they carried with them a Mylar emergency blanket....once the storm hit, they got cold, wrapped themselves in the blanket and huddled between the boulders.....where they were struck by lightning....can you say, Krispy Kritters?:flames:

    I think people are confusing duct tape with electrical tape... duct tape is large, heavy duty tape which will hold things together very well. Electrical tape is a smaller, thinner, more plasticy tape which is used for other things.

    OK, is there confusion as to what can or cannot be electrically conductive? Plastic cannot be electrically conductive? I give as an example something I'm sure every single person that visits this site owns....an anti-static bag for a mobo, GPU, etc. That bag contains carbon elements which give it conductivity, and grounds out a static charge.
    Duct tape still sucks....:p

    excuse me, but u didnt just make a foul comment about duct tape did u, cuz i might have to take a **** fit if that starts happening. duct tape is a multi-purpose tool u know.

    So you're an electrician that uses duct tape....with your atrocious spelling, I'd guess you've had a few too many jolts of juice....:D
    After more research, I found that 3M does indeed make a type of duct tape for electrical work. Now, tell me this....why would they make a special type for electrical work if the regular kind is fine to use????

    Ive NEVER used duct tape in a computer since I fried and old K6-200 system using duct tape, (It was DEFINATELY the tape) if your gonna use tape, use electrical tape.

    Man, duct tape is the s***, but I wouldnt use it in computers as it can get messy (strings and goo everywhere). Use some electrical tape, its neat and is designed for that kind of stuff, not too mention it holds really well and can be taken off easily. It's like duct tape's neater younger brother, lol. : peace2: Mista K6

    true duct tape rocks man, but electric tape is better for comps, and duct tape is the best for evrything else. as for the conductive arguement, im not gettin involved.
