ah.  that's good to know :)

i've never had any issues with this, perhaps a different type of bag?

still if you are concerned, pablo, use a piece of paper instead.  just
please not a plastic bag (PC, Nylon, PVA)

it goes without saying that you should not be wearing your favourite
polyester shirt, rubber-soled shoes and the 70s nylon fashionable
trousers and the brown wool hairy cardigan [i actually had one of
those], doing this all on the shag rug carpet.

if you don't have an anti-static mat (with the strap and everything)
then a tiled floor, wooden desk, and if you have a radiator nearby or
you know *for a fact* that a piece of electrical or electronic
equipment has an earth connection (many laptop PSUs *DO NOT HAVE
GROUND*) just touch the metal before handling the PCBs ok?
