    I just want to know: do you clean it up, or do you save the spillings for late night snacks?

    Oh wow, you name it. Until I got this spiffy keyboard cover. It's just a sheet of ultra thin plastic wrappy stuff.

    Oh, hell, yes. Being an Electrical Engineer and having started as repairman, I have some tricks for that.

    One day I was in a restroom of a major Electronics Manufacturing firm. I was brushing down my keyboard in the sink; the VP of Engineering walks by and says 'what are you doing'?

    "Oh, I spilled cofee in it."

    "Does that work?'"

    "If you're careful, know how to do it, have a spare and don't use it for about a day, yes!!"

    "When you're done with that one, come by my office..."

    I got a real kick out of cleaning the one I spilled wine in

    Tektronix, the Oscilloscope Manufacturer, has an "apps note" on how to wash Oscilloscopes. We had a spray booth for that purpose in the Calibration Lab when I worked in aerospace.

    Lately I find myself holding the keyboards upside down and brushing them with a drafting foxtail.

    There are always crumbs in my kb. So once a week I turn it over and pound it on the desk and shake them out. Then I gather them together into a bowl, add milk and sugar and poof...HOMEMADE Grape Nuts!
