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.
Monster everywhere.
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.

Regards, pwnorbpwnd.


Also feel free to drop a few bitcents into my wallet if you can relate or whatever
