Re: Keyboard not acting normal

JM Casey

I have certainly do it,a nd regularly have a drink by the keyboard

But I have also have accidents – shorted out at least two keyboards. And eventually one way or another they will get gunk in them that will affect their function. Keys not working or appearing to “stick” are the symptoms you will usuallye xperience – sometimes multiple keys at once.

I think that there are certain things that, no matter how careful you are, even a very small chance of something going wrong isn’t worth the pleasure.

Hi jacky.

Yeah, I agree, drinking and eating near the board, I never do it.

You can knock things over so easily.

Sightlings do it to.

I still don't know how some of my family can read the screen of their
tablet, work on their computer, drink coffee and eat musly all while
talking on the phone to someone down the other end of the house I
certainly can't see my self doing it.

I have tried to do it and made a mess of myself so no.

I have to many things about on my system to actually think about eating
near it.

Now eating near your smart device with it a certain distance away maybe
but the board, yeah its a problem.

While flatting in fact thhe system had a lot of issues, people used cd
drives as cup hholders, there was food inside of the computer and so I
can't be that bad.

However for a while my brother ate dinner and all meals ner the computer
and I never had the issue of him spilling food though he left his
rubbish for weeks on end but yeah, I'd never do it.

Just today I was resetting the entire network and I have probably
knocked something off the desk, maybe its a phone but I can't find it,
its not a big issue someone else can bother with it later but even so.
