I was on vacation about a month ago, and being the smart person i am, decided to keep all my electronics (powerbook, ipod, cellphone, nice headphones, digicam) in my shoulder bag. This would have been fine as I am usually pretty careful with that kind of thing, but my boyfriend was drinking a diet pepsi and handed the half full bottle to me and asked me to keep it in my bag. Without thinking, I put it right in there, only to realize a few minutes later that the bottle wasn't completely closed and had filled the bottom 3 inches of my bag with liquid. My powerbook took a hard hit, we drained as much as we could out of it on the spot and just agreed to deal with it all later. Obviously it wasn't on when the spill happened, but I have since been terrified to even attempt to use it. I have some extremely important information on there that I had not backed up yet (large sections of my novel, my resume, etc..i know, i know, i should have backed it up). So does anyone have any advice on what to do? is there some way to clean the residue and get it into working condition again? What should I do?
