Good advice actually, I do forget that the disspation resistor (forgot
the proper name for it, I mean the one that is supposed to slowly
discharge caps etc) can be "inadequate".

Oh, and make sure you take off ANY metal jewellry too, as it can touch
things, even if you don't ;)
I have seen the burn marks and melted bracelet of a friend who forgot
whilst the monitor was on *shakes head* silly boy.

You could always wear washing-up-gloves [dry, naturally :)] and make
sure the glove opening is tucked under your sleeves....

Just be careful!
