Are you guilty?

image1No. 1 rule – dont eat food or drink around your PC or laptop! Now why you may ask? Because if liquid is spilt on your keyboard or laptop it can destroy it.

Are you guilty of spilling water or coffee on your keyboard or laptop? I have once by accident spilt coffee on my laptop and it cost me to get my laptop repaired. Oh why didn’t I listen to the wise old owls advice! Oh never again I say! But still one gets caught up with work and coffee in one hand and sandwich in the other hand! But if you dont want to get into a situation where you’re saying to yourself ‘oh I wish I didnt do that, I have lost precious data on my computer or laptop, now I have to get a techie to fix it, oh what a nuisance!’. Regret, regret, so dont do it again!

Have you ever cleaned your keyboard? Interesting what comes out of it! Back in the old days of manual typewriters, we had a typewriter cleaner lady that used to come in once a month to thoroughly clean and polish our typewriters. And she was great person to chat to.

Here is a great website to walk you through the steps to take to avoid eating food or drinking around your PC. I know they said that rule No. 1 when computers were first brought in! But and its a big BUT – no one takes notice. What could possibly happen you say? Hmm, mistakes happen in life!

Best regards!
