Strip away the insulation for about 8 " or so....LOOK at the colored wires. *To be safe, use your meter, and put it into continuity test mode - place one probe on the round (ground) part of the male plug, and find the wire that it attaches to by putting the probe on each of the other wires until you hear beeps

Cut away the other wires, at least 6" of them - then fold them over (one at a time) and seal with two layers of electrical tape, or heat shrink - making sure to do them separately - then you can combine them into one little bundle, and heat shrink that as well. *Then you are left with the male end of the plug that will plug into any grounded socket - and you can attach the free end of the ground wire to your ESD mat that you are attached to as well

SEEMS complicated - but works like a champ EVERY time. *That way you don't have to worry about any ESD hitting your PC either
Im not sure if thats the best advice for someone who asking basic things about electricity, like where to ground himself ;D To plug himself in the mains connector with DIY grounding cable lol
Otherwise, thats a great idea. I should make one actually. *

Well you have to start somewhere without fear of being laughed at. I know loads about computers and stuff, but not much when it comes down to basic circuitry.
