I was sitting at my computer typing away when I reached for something. Suddenly, I felt a cold liquid start running down my legs. By then, it was too late. My keyboard was gone.
I foolishly had my beer (I’m not going to tell how many I had prior) right next to my keyboard and spilled the sucker. As I quickly unplugged my keyboard and attempted to blow-dry it free of liquid, my thoughts went for the worse. I had no way to type. Luckily Windows has the handy program called Charmap.
I called it a night and figured perhaps an evening of drying off would help the situation. When I got home from work tonight, my keyboard was still doomed. The “Q” key wouldn’t work at all, and the “F” key thought it was a “B” key. So if you would like some advice out of all this, do not spill beer on your keyboard. 🙂
I have now upgraded my keyboard to the ultra-blog classic. Okay, maybe the keyboard I have now is a little of a step-down. It has a PS/2 connection. The fact that there are still wired keyboards — and keyboards that still have PS/2 connections for that matter — was a little unnerving. I didn’t check to see if Wal-Mart still sold floppy disks.
Anyways, now I have a keyboard and can continue ranting and raving at anything and everything. Thanks for reading.
