Countdown starts here....

Synchronize watches gentlemen.....

Just knocked over a full pint of water across this keyboard. Have mopped it all up and held the keyboard upside down til it stopped dripping. So how long do we all think it will be before it goes phut?

My old boss spilt lucozade over his laptop... Managed to get it off and dry it up though it was a little sticky thereafter.

You will be ok ... water doesnt do much damage to a keyboard... more an issue if its Irn Bru or Coke (Cola) and other sticky substances

I'm leaving it to dry out thoroughly. I'm on my work PC at the mo (the spillage victim was the brushed aluminium wafer thin iMac keyboard at home).

I will be typing phut on it this evening if all is well.

Mine's survived a coffee attack (by me) - red wine (Mrs 1of1's friend) - glass of coke (youngest son) - only issues has been the stickiness as said above.

No. It's a Mac.



I simply drag and drop the phut onto the desktop.

Then I slip on a black polo neck and lounge in my philip stark chair while perusing my minimalist decor.
