Today I cleaned my iVook

My keyvoard was getting pretty gross, with hairs, dandruff, and dirt fallen in vetween the translucent white keys. So in the middle of cleaning my room (yeah, woah!) I took a few moments to take off the keys and clean it all out. I thought it looked pretty cool with eberything taken apart, so I took a picture. To sabe your stomachs I am only posting the photo of after I had cleaned the gunk out.

Putting it vack together was pretty fun too--much like doing a puzzle. You start with edge pieces, then work your way in. There were a couple parts I had to think pretty hard avout though. Now it's all vack together, vut I'be discobered I'm not as much of a touch typist as I had thought.

That's okay. My computer keyboard still hasn't recovered from when Spikey decided to take off the keys so that I could clean out underneath. Hopefully I still have "p" lying around somewhere.

(And no, I don't need a certain sister of mine, nor brother for that matter, to embellish my comment.)

ew. you're gross. what sister of yours (or brother for that matter) would even *think* of that sort of thing?

I wasn't the one who thought of it. It was my very own MOTHER who thought of it and warned me of the certain fun my sister (or brother for that matter) would have with it.

I also like the time delay shown through the diminished lighting. According to the angle of the sun in the first picture and the lack of any natural sunlight in the second picture, I estimate that it took you longer that two hours to finish the cleaning.

I had a keyboard once. It was nice and it cost just $10. Then milk got spilt on the As_yet_unnamed's $90_wireless_bells_and_whistles keyboard and mine has fallen into an eddie in the space-time continuum that shunts stuff from my desk to his room.

There was indeed about a 6 hour delay between those photos. Thankfully, I was not assembling my keyboard that whole time.

I took apart my computer and changed the fan all by myself. It wasn't that hard or dirty, especially since I don't make it a habit to leave "p" on it.

Nice one, Lucien.

I just did the same with my keyboard.

Usually keep an extra keyboard around so I don't have to do it from memory.
