I tend to keep a glass of water with me that I sip on throughout the day. I had just filled a large glass and was settling into some computer time when I spilled the whole glass all over the keyboard. Splash.
Water is good for people, not so good for keyboards. The keyboard does look a lot cleaner, but the number keys at the top of the letters don't work, and the control key. And the batch of keys in the center - the home key, the delete key. And the exclamation mark. Amazing how often I use them.
I'm just glad that the system is designed to allow me more than one way to do the same thing. The thing I miss the most is the at sign, I haven't figured out how to do it, and now I have to copy and paste it from one of my emails. I'm just glad it didn't damage anything else.
I did buy another keyboard - the box says it is spill resistant. I've just have been too lazy to do the switch.
