Idle Question

I'm not asking this for any particular reason, but what are your thoughts about gravy on computer keyboards? myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics I have had better weeks, but what frightens me most about this one is that it just started.

Quilldancer,
you might wanna try e-bay, see if anyone wants to swap a non gravy laden keyboard, for a hot dinner.
Roast meat, two veg, yorkie pudd and lashings of rich gravy!

Strange as it may seem, but gravy is not a recoginsed keyboard lubricant.

I once spilt Cranberry juice on my laptop while working through lunch. Although I turned it off immediatly and carefully dried it out, the damage was done. The computer was fine but the keyboard seemed to have a (sticky) mind of it's own.

I reported it as a keyboard failure to the help-line as I didn't want to admit my stupidity. However, I had to come clean to the engineer, but he didn't seem to impressed.

Becuase of this, I became famous in the companies IT department. I was known as "The Cranberry Vandal" for the rest of my employment there.

Getting back to your question. If it still works, don't worry about it.

Regards.
Chris.

LOL...I agree with Chris. It'll eventually decompose underneath the keys right?

Gravy is best with mashed taters. Keyboards have a funny plastic taste. I don't recommend them as a snack.

I agree with you: the week is already too long.

I think I have spilt worse things on the keyboard. And my brother says I am too rough with it. It still keeps on keeping on. And when it stops working I throw it away and get a new one (did that just sound like metaphor for a relationship?)

I just wanted to stop by and thank you for the prayers.
I don't think that gavey and keyboards go together. Dr John has put different foods together with his keyboard but not gravey as he doen't like gravey. I try to keep all foods away.

If you can use it forget it. Otherwise buy a new one. Keyboards are not expensive. Of course you could save it for Thanksgiving.

Goldennib -- your avice came too late ...

Jenn -- if it ain't broke don't fix it -- if it is get something newer, flashier and better -- unless its a man. Flashy men tend to be the center of their own universe.

Betty -- shame on you for tattleing on your sloppy husband

Dr. John -- it still works but it is very sticky. Perhaps later I'll pop it in the dishwasher ....
