    My not even 3 week-old macbook was almost brought to a devastating end this afternoon. I went to reach for my mouse blindly, and hit the coffee cup(giant mug half-full) tumbling towards the top right of my keyboard.:eek: But that coffee that was missing had kicked my reflexes up a few notches. I without even noticing grabbed my macbook in a flash and twisted it upside down before more than a spoonful had fallen near the keyboard. A negligible amount hit the screen, and the rest spread over the table as the cup tumbled onto it. Im not sure it would have fared so well had I not been on my 4th cup at the time. :D

    Nice save. Always knew having coffee would pay off sometime.

    Nice story.

    I guess certain harder drugs can offer the same type of improvement in 'speed', but even more of it.

    I would never have thought I would need that, but may now. I cannot even remember the last time I spilled anything.

    Please don't spray the "waterproofing" spray you'd use to waterproof your winter boots on your Macbook. The waterproofing stuff that's dielectric and otherwise safe for electronics costs about about $1,000 for enough to do one lap top.

    Nice reflexes. That. Would. Have. Sucked.

    Maybe you should consider trying out as a goalie for an NHL team...... I hear that the Ottawa Senators are looking :p
