Well my coffee stained keyboard has dried out and I think the coffee spillage managed to float a lot of the crap that had built up after a few years of crumbs etc falling into it, so it looks pretty rank.

That'll definitely be finding it's way on to the spare desk for someone else to use  :whistle
You can put a keyboard in a dishwasher. Just make sure you leave it dry for a few days afterwards.

I once set someone's screensaver to the blue screen of death (remember when that used to be quite common), and then in the registry changed the timeout to 1millisecond.

This IT japery has moved on a bit. Back in my day a nit of tape over the red mouse light would have us in stitches for days as someone was on the phone to an IT help desk tearing their hair out trying to make their computer work again

Put some prawns in and when they ask what the smell is just say someone told you he used to have a w@nk [filtered] over it every now and then. When he comes back as an HR Director you can all have a jolly good laugh.

Hmmm, well the keys are quite a bit squishier than my old one now you mention it.

I gave it a wipe over with a couple of screen cleaners, so hopefully any residues will be dealt with  :tink

Wasted Coffee
« Reply #1 on: 08:40 - 17 December, 2019 »
Just knocked my cup of coffee (full) into my keyboard and all over my desk  :censor.

More concerned about the lack of coffee at this time of the morning, but as it's quiet I've pinched the keyboard of a guy in my team who left a couple of weeks ago and we haven't found a replacement yet.

Will put my sticky keyboard on his desk once it's dried out and everyones at lunch  :whistle
