don't spill orange juice on your keyboard

Well, duh!

Anyway, it will be a while before I can post blogs from home again. I expect to have the computer back on Wednesday but I may have to wait to get out of the doghouse...we'll see.

Oh, if you do spill a drink on your keyboard, its possible to save the keyboard, but you should act quickly. If you wait a day or two, as I did, the acids in the drink can etch the connection causing you to need a whole new keyboard.

Well. You should try wine. That does the trick too. AND it attracts ants! I just got the keyboard fixed/replaced on my laptop and i've been sternly ordered to never drink anything around the computer again. Ever.

Not even water and not even if I'm dying of thirst.
