Red wine and keyboards

I have noticed recently that the spacebar on the desktop computer keyboard doesn't work properly. Inotherwordsitdoesn'tleavespacesbetweenwords! However, Keith to the rescue - he has fixed it. Not in the ordinary sense of the word, of course. Keith doesn't 'do' ordinary! His method of fixing was to tip a glass of finest Australian red all over it (well Australian red, anyway). So now, none of the keys work.However, not to be outdone, I retrieved another one from the cupboard under the stairs. (Doesn't everyone keep keyboards under the stairs?) And guess what! That one doesn't work either. Why? Well, it's had red wine tipped over it.You'd think he'd have learned by now, wouldn't you? It's white wine that does the trick!

    No. I work in IT, so I nick them from the office when I need a new one :-)

  7. You guys in the UK are so classy fixing your keyboards with wine. ;-) Here in the US, I would have smashed it with a hammer until I felt better.
