Curently using my old keyboard but like the logitec because of it's configurable short cut buttons.
It worked a little right after the spill. But very often when typing the key next to the one you actualy pressed woudl be triggered. so d = df and g = gh.. bit of a nightmare to try and type with.
Time to shop for a new one of does anyone have any wonder ideas :)
I had some distilled water thats been lying about for ages so I poured it slowly into the left side.. loosened the screws on the right side so it had a free exit. Will leave it a day or 2 to dry out and see what happens.
I was going to strip it out and clean everythign up but this aint the first time I have done this. Last time springs things and ding a lings everywhere :)
Distilled water like everyone said ..
( hell just reading some of the better posts here have cost me many a keyboard in the morning "start the day with caffeine that you could trot a mouse across"..my all time favourite keyboard killer post was something like...
"and there we all were in the jail house n I said "spammin google "and they all came slidin' back a long the bench" ..
pure alices restaurant ..cost me a keyboard , a printer .30 minutes to clean the monitor ..bunch of paperwork destroyed .no hope ..rewite ..reprint ...books "destroy" ..table ..same and jeans and tee shirt "straight to the washing machine" ..plus wife's "comments"..
( now she thinks this place is full of hopheads and pronsellers ...maybe she is right .. )..
The alice's resto post was worth every bit of the mayhem and weird looks it got ( I think it was also the one where Brett mentioned the member weed routine? )...
a logitec keyboard is nothin for a ring side seat ..
Spilled another latte a month or so ago, not as much though. Took it into the kitchen and cleaned it all up, right down to cleaning the teeny spaces with a Q-Tip. Got back to my desk and discovered my wireless keyboard worked from the kitchen and I sent a bunch of gibberish IM messages from the keys I was cleaning ;)
My favorite spilling on the keyboard story is this one [webmasterworld.com] - message #25 by deejay. Makes me laugh everytime.
