    Red face If you had to spill something on your Ubuntu laptop, what would it be?

    Okay, as all my friends and significant other already know, I spill at least one glass of something every month. It's become such a bad inside joke, they bought me a tipsy mug.

    I'm just curious, what have you spilled on your laptop or keyboard?

    I will admit, the messiest for me was upsetting a McDonalds Caramel Frappe on a company laptop at lunch once. And yes, it totally fubar'd the keyboard. :^) And I had to put up with a month of "sticky keyboard" jokes from coworkers.

    Nothing. I normally am smart enough to drink away from the computer. If I was stupid enough to make that mistake, it would be Mountain Dew.

    Yea. What did it do? Freeze? I bet it did, and you had to superclock it to get it to work.

    nice. Except you don't spill liquid nitro on it, I'd think. Seems like you'd dunk *it* in liquid nitro

    LOL. I once spilled hot chicken noodle soup on my keyboard (and my lap) because the hot bowl burned all my fingers. It shorted out the keyboard and made my computer beep nonstop. Luckily this isn't a laptop. I will never eat something like that near any computer ever again.

    PS. Don't eat in the dark if you have a habit of setting your glass down on top of something that causes it to spill. Just a wild guess.

    I have spilled hot coffee on my dad's X-something IBM lappy... some Centerino dual core that costs like 3000$ (in 2005). Of course it was windows XP so this computer had it coming. (It of course survived and is still serving my dad well, it IS an IBM, you know.)

    I have spilled nothing on my lappy which is running Ubuntu; it has good Karma

    Nah, you can perfectly well spill liquid nitrogen on something.

    I never drink near my laptop so if I'd spill some kind of liquid over my keyboard I probably wouldn't want anyone to know about it
    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!
