Building computer on carpet

Splendid
^+1. I just rebuilt my computer on carpet/microfiber couch yesterday, and I'm typing from it.
Also, make sure to not wear socks or anything with a sole. The friction between what's on your feet and the carpet is what generates static. Most people's feet, however, do not :)

How did the build go? I will be building my first PC in a few days and I also need to stand on cardboard and if it worked for you it should work for me.

I decided to just build it on my wooden desk instead.

If you build it on cardboard, then that should still be fine.

When building my pc do I keep the power into the wall outlet but with the psu turned of or do I take it out of the power completely, putting the pc on the floor while using an ESD wristrap? The floor being carpet, I will sit on the floor, I have already done this and built the system and nothing happened but was I just lucky?
