DJ Booths Need Cup-Holders

Thursday - 3:12 A.M.
Drink spills fully on my laptop.


3:12:05
Jump into action like Batman on speed.
Grab towel.
Wipe furiously.

3:13:48
Computer operates fine. Consider getting back on decks, but opt out.

Friday - 1:36 P.M.
Turning on the computer, I notice that the mouse works fine, yet the keyboard merely teases me. First it gives me numbers when I'm on letters, then it gives me crazy symbols, then it just stops . . . sometimes.

Saturday - 4:40 P.M.
Mac genius doesn't notice water-damage; computer is under warranty, suggests a replacement which will take 5-7 days.
I don't have 5-7 open/free days that I can wait for a Mac engineer to notice the liquid residue, void my warranty, mail back the laptop asking for $800; or hope that they won't notice.
So I bought a USB keyboard.  Aside from impractically, so far so good.

Here's an idea....
NEVER EVER PUT A DRINK BY ANYTHING ELECTRONIC WHEN IT'S LOUD AND YOU'RE DRUNK.
seems to work.
