If possible, purchase hardware components that are made from non-conductive metals, or even better, composite materials.



Hmm... Non-conductive conductors. Now there's a thought!

Try to avoid wearing tin-foil hats if possible, although that's just what the government wants you to do.

Now I can't wear my Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie (AFDB) while on the net. I'll be subject to mind control beams, but at least won't be electrocuted by the 220 Volt European websites

While CAT-5 is the national standard, try to use a higher CAT, such as 6, 7, or 8. In fact, the higher the CAT, the better. While real cats have nine lives, you only have one, and it would be sad to see you lose it by using poor quality unshielded cabling.
