    Did that, just hoped for a less painfull solution. If you play, you must pay, huh?

    Tis good to see you here twombo.

    So what the latest on the keyboard? Is it still crippled?

    yeah , it's in the dumper. Ordered a new keyboard from the powerbook guy in S.F. Pricey and hard to find, but less expensive than from apple andquicker delivery. Will arrive today and i'llbe back to full strength. Using my extra 1st gen I Mac keyboard and a optical mouse which fits in my bag just fine. actually a pretty comfy solution.

    Thought about rinsing with De-ionized water to get the coffee (with cream, sugar and 2 shots of Espresso) out but feared damaging the "core" beyondrepair and losing exchange value. It should work but not worth the risk if "murphy" raises his ugly head.

    If one plays, one must pay!
