An Elk With Nine Lives

I thought you might like to hear about a minor miracle that occurred last year. My daughter, then three years old, tipped a beaker full of milkshake all over the Electron. Luckily it was not plugged in at the time!

My brother-in-law surprised us all by putting the computer in the bath and turning on the shower! When he had washed off all the sticky goo he gave it a good shake until it stopped dripping. He wrapped it in a towel and told us to keep it in the airing cupboard for a week. We did this and, believe it or not, the computer worked fine!

What a way to clean your keyboard!
