I'm not sure if this question is in the correct place. If it's not let me know where you relocate it.
I know "how" to use an Antistatic wrist strap my question is what would be the best place to clip the alligator clip to in my house with very little metal surfaces in it, namely my home office?
Or could I do it outside while sitting on my concrete steps? I'm adding another 1g RAM to my Inspiron 6k and don't want to fry the thing.

connect it to a bare metal part of the equipment you are working on - usually the chassis of the computer case. This will keep you at the same potential as the work.
