I had a bit of a hardware crisis last night.
I blame it on multi-tasking. I foolishly attempted to have a sip of tea whilst playing Aliens vs. Predator. Not a good idea.
In the game, a nasty alien gave me a good scare which resulted in tea spilt on my keyboard in the real world.
I cleaned it off, carried on, and didn’t think too much of it.
Later on, though, keys started to repeat and before too long, the keyboard stopped working altogether.
I drained the keyboard as best I could by turning it on its side and left it out to dry overnight. I would have liked to open it up but Apple has made them all but impregnable.
Today, it’s working (touch wood).
Still, I wonder if its only a matter of time before my keyboard is totally kaput. Maybe I should invest in a new one and vow to take better care of it.
Thank goodness I had my iBook to fall back on.
