    Why did ya take it out of the box when ya not ready to use it for? :rolleyes2

    That shouldn't hurt it though unless ya had a charge runnin' thru it.

    all components sensative to static must be placed on hard surface as long as its not possible to physically damage it. Personally I keep around one MB box and static bag.:hammer:

    How hard a surface is has absolutely no bearing on the potential for static damage. Just about anything that is made from plastic will not only generate a charge, but will store it indefinitely. Laying sensitive electronic components or circuit boards on grounded metallic surfaces has almost the same potential for doing damage as a charged plastic laminate desk top that is non-conductive. The only safe place to lay unprotected ( that is, not in a static-safe mylar bag ) electronic components or circuit boards is on a specially prepared static mat or table top that drains charges slowly enough to protect the components or circuit boards. What I am talking about here is surfaces that are conductive (have surface resistivities in the hundreds of ohms per square), surfaces that are non-conductive ( have surface resistivities in the tens of gigohms per square), and surfaces that are dissipative ( have surface resistivities in the hundreds of megohms per square ). Dissipative surfaces are the safest places to lay unprotected electronic components and circuit boards.

    whoah, readin that was hard.
