Dang It!

August 15, 2017 at 09:54AM

Had an accident last week. Spilled water into my old Apple Aluminum **wired ** keyboard. And now it maybe about time to say adieu. Got a bunch of stuff that isn't working. That's just the stuff I can tell. On the main keys: 2, 3, -, [delete] (both of them), [tab], q,w,e, left bracket, [] key, a, s, d, ', left [shift], z, x, v, [cntl], [alt] or [option], [command]

And on the numeric keypad, which I am already missing, as I use it a lot: 0, 2, [Enter], +, -, *.

They don't make this thing anymore. Not in the cheap wired version. Make a "Magic" Blue tooth version... * sigh *. AT TWICE THE PRICE. Not everything has to be fucking wireless.

* So now what? *

Kind of wondering if I just let it sit for a while (although it has already been a few days) if I'll get that functionality back.

* One thing is certain, I need to get it off my desk. I keep trying to * USE THE FUCKER!!

* laughs *

Ugh! Yeah, I fried a Chromebook that way about a month ago. Even after letting it dry? Nope.

Honestly, next time I'm flush I think I'll buy one and just keep it on hand, because I do stupid stuff like this WAY TOO OFTEN.

Little different than a keyboard, but I get your point.

What does a chromebook cost these days? I might conducer a small one for road trips and such. But I am not a real fan of chrome. Rather get a new iPad I think. Gonna have (want) to soon. My old one is ailing. My big ass phone just isn't enough screen for longer term viewing.

Depending on the sale, you can get a Chromebook for $150. Pretty sweet, if it meets your needs.

Tip it upside down and leave it to "drain" for a couple of days and just see what happens?
This is why I stay away from Apple as they do nothing cheap and nothing else is compatible

Been upside down since I did it. But alas. There are plenty of 3rd party keyboards and other assorted peripherals out there. Most work quite well with Apple equipment. I happen to like the look and feel of the aluminium keyboards they do.
