It's funny to hear the crunching sounds coming from the keys when you type.

the worst

by hastigo In reply to DOWNLOAD: The worst foods ...

Guess it's not food but tomato juice is a consumable...also very ugly spashed across the keyboard.
Unplug quick, invert, let drip and be patient (an hour or two), generally works again.
There is still cleanup to do..but do it dry.
All liquids now are set down away from the peripheral and drunk sitting a bit back and away.
One doesn't understand how such a stupid thing could happen ...but quantum-wise, it does.

Alternative cleaning method...

Guess I should've mentioned ants too - I have a colony of those really small ones living on my desk - they LOVE tomato juice.

Chips

All kinds, potato, rice, corn, sesame, vegie. They all tend to snap
and invariably land between the keys. The perils of eating while
you work!

IV

by JSerrago In reply to Chips

It comes down to this, we all do it. We all try to get work done while we are eating or drinking becuase alot of us get so wrapped up in our work if we dont we wil actually forget to eat or drink.

So I just think we should all get fitted to have IV's hooked up to us so its one thing we dont have to worry about. Just have somone change the bags every few hours.


*For thouse of you that think I am serious I am not. This post is pruely for the sake of humor. Besides it wouldnt work until they start making coffee IVs.

ten worst foods over keyboard

by brokenangel In reply to the worst

coffee or any other liquid would be a worse hazzard over a keyboard then crumbs. food can easily be either vacumed out or that can of cold air stuff they use to dust out keyboards. i've gone thru too many keyboards by spilling liquids of any kind on my keyboard.

Still hate downloads, but ...

by doulos8 In reply to DOWNLOAD: The worst foods ...

Tech Republic's use of downloads is still excessive. But to turn a common complaint around - why don't you put a link to the download on the discussions page? At least then we could look at some of the comments before deciding if the download is worth the effort - and be able to get to the download easily.

Oh, about the content - it wasn't worth the effort. Much too trivial.
