So, has anyone besides me enjoyed having their favourite beverage beside the to sip on during long hours reading on a forum? Be it pop, energy drink, beer, juice, or even water.
Well, I have a little something half embarrassing, half grateful to share with you.
So picture this, me sitting here eyes glued to this very forum browsing hardware, FGPA's, and Mhash/s achievements of various users.
As I go to reach for the mouse a random can of Monster energy drink that I have not touched in hours shows up inbetween my right hand and my mouse.
As I sit there in shock too afraid to move as I watch the bubbly green fluid float out from under my Corsair K90 keyboard I silently utter ''Oh god no..''.
I then spring into action and unplug the keyboard right as the backlit LED keys flicker and then proceed to shut off.
My girlfriend, who is less than 3 feet behind me on the floor with her laptop says aloud, ''You didn't just do that...''.
As I sit there in shock, unable to speak as any geek who just witnessed his very EXPENSIVE peripheral get destroyed would do.
I then tilt the K90 to a 90 degree angle and silently cry inside as I watch my very drink pour out of the inside of the keyboard and onto my lap.
Luckily by the time it stops dripping I have my woman beside me plugging in a hairdryer telling me how I should not drink near my computer.
After a ten minute period of drying the crap out of the outside and trying to blow as much air as I could inside I plugged it in again to have it malfunction like mad.
After looking over the warranties, RMA's, and even considering selling it to one of the potheads in my town I decide to try to fix it again.
Long story short, after 2 hours of dabbing with a fine sponge, disassembling the whole keyboard, and drying the hell out of it, I got it to work.
Feel free to share your horror stories of the desk if you'd like. Let me know if my derpyness entertained you.
Also feel free to drop a few bitcents into my wallet if you can relate or whateverDonations
