I bought three humidifiers last winter at the corner drug store for $15
each. They consist of a large tank and a fan that blows over a special
sponge. I keep them clean with bleach and use distilled water with them
and haven't had any problems with buildup at all. Each one works well for
a 15'x15' room; Southern California is dry enough *without* the heaters
going at night - a static nightmare without humidifiers.

To move this on-topic (a little), does anyone know the *ideal* relative
humidity for computer/electonic equipment? How about for magnetic media,
specifically these 8" disks and 9track tapes that are already approaching
their 20th birthdays?
