    Keyboard

    I have an older Mirosoft keyboard that I know is about ready to give up the ghost. What I am noticing however is small amount of what appears to be coffee on the keyboard. What makes this strange is that it only happens first thing in the morning, and then disappears around 9 AM.
    Anyone know what may be causing this?
    Thanks John

    A leaky coffee mug?

    Seriously - any more clues? Are you talking about big drips, or fine speckles of liquid? All over the keyboard, or just in one or two places? Do you have a humidifier? Have you tasted it?

    Tastes like coffee, and I am inclined to agree with the leaky coffee cup. Do you think that switching to a sippy cup would help?
    Thanks John

    Intravenous coffee is the surest method, but are you sure you don't just need a Java upgrade?

    Perhaps you should get a new version of CoffeeCup.

    Is it the cup or the lip that is leaking?
    Have you put in your piercings when the leaks stop? <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    I'm thinking that it is a leaky lip. Don't know about piercing. Just thinking about a lip pierce makes me shudder.

    Re: Keyboard

    Well, This morning I was able to solve the mysterious wet keyboard problem.
    There were 3 things that need adjusting. The first was the Mr. Coffee hardware, someone logged in and reset the temperature.
    The next was the JAVA. I uninstalled this and reinstalled the lastest version of the Folgers. Next I found that the CoffeeCup cache was set to maximum so I lowered it to just below that. Problem solved!
    Thanks John
