I'm no expert on this but our computer tech guy was recently telling us that you can fry your computer's motherboard if you plug one of these memory sticks in with a static electrical charge built up on your body. Apparently serious computer problems have resulted when people pet their cat and then plug something into their computer.

A comment on Peter's saving things on flash memory sticks:
These are nice to be sure. But be aware that they are not reliable for keeping things for the long term. I don't know the mechanism, but sometimes you'll find that your files have been corrupted and the images or other files not retrievable. Or 75% are gone and 25% are seemingly OK. I know this has happened to me, so just make sure you have some other record you can get to in case one of these gizmos punks out on you. Best is a backup system. Or CDs. Or maybe one of these cool internet storage boxes.
Somebody else on the list must be more knowledgeable about this than I am. Please advise.
