In a monumental fit of stupidity, I decided to watch a movie on my 32 gig iPod touch 2g in the bathtub, and dropped it during my soak. After reading a thread or two on the subject, I followed the advice of turning it off immediately, and letting it sit a day or two in a baggie full of dry rice to let it absorb all of the moisture. Plugged it into the desktop, and it came on immediately, and started charging! It took a charge, is holding it, and everything works! My iPod has returned from the dead! Thanks, MacRumors!
