[bksvol-discuss] Re: OT opinions is the keyboard or keyboarder?

Dear Cindy,

Surely you jest! I was going to post some dubious humor about having a sinkful of dirty dishes and another sinkful worth of pots and pans on the side and wishing I could toss the keyboard in with the lot. Then I read your message. I thought liquid in any form was murder to anything electronic.

It rattles, but I've never spilled a drop on this keyboard. It isn't tacky or crummy. But, after reading Katie's advice, I ran my finger from right to left, horizontally, between the rows of keys and did delve out a mini clod of dust.

So, no dousing until I get further instructions. And, I have a dish washer but haven't used it in decades. I like washing dishes by hand but love kitchen gadgets etc. My dishwasher is full of pot lids of every imaginable size. So, I'll need my instructions for washing my grubby keyboard in the sink, or did you say the washing machine worked just as well?

Always with love,

Lissi.

Actually, you can wash a keyboard in the dishwasher.
Both Gerald and someone else--Katie? Kellie, gave us
directions once. My husband, doubtfully, followed them
with a keyboard on which he'd spilled coke and it
worked just fine.

I know I saved them. I'll look.

HI Lissi,

Yes, I have seen keyboards get dirty or just start
to give out after a
number of years. Using a keyboard every day for a
few years or more can take
its toll. Disconnecting it from the computer and
vacuuming it out and wiping
it down good can sometimes help. As careful as one
might be stuff can get
down between the keys.

Dear Volunteer Friends,

This question isn't one of my important, urgent
ones. I don't need to have
an answer to continue working on a book.

It's to do with my typing. Most of the errors the
spellchecker points out to
me before I post an e mail or save a document are
words where I've
incorrectly typed a letter twice. Here are some
examples.

boook  b-o-o-o-k instead of book

playy  p-l-a-y-y instead of play

sttorm s-t-t-o-r-m instead of storm

starss s-t-a-r-s-s instead of stars

iit. i-i-t instead of it

I used not to make these kinds of errors.

So,  is it me, or my keyboard? Is my typing getting
funky or, since this is
the only keyboard I've ever used, can I blame it for
getting funky? The keys
definitely rattle more than they used to. The noise
is sometimes tiresome.
Has anyone here ever worn out a keyboard? Have you
noticed anything it does
to show it's wearing out?

Really wondering.

Is this question something like, "What came first,
the chicken or the egg?"

Always with love,

Lissi
