Thread: I had an Accident!

    Default I had an Accident!

    I lost Trainz UTC today! I spilled milk on the Windows 7 32 bit computer last night! My daughter tried to clean it today but that failed! Now I'm using Windows Vista that has Lego Loco and Open TTD installed!

    Well, it is good for you, but not for computers.

    Please tell me that you had EVERYTHING backed up! Yesterday,I was creating an Activity on my patio and somebody poured water out of an upstairs window! I set a record getting back outside,but my 15 year Toshiba{which I use for Activity creation only!}was still humming along. I only hope that my body is that resilient when I enter my dotage! My advice is to take it to a knowledgeable Computer repair person and HOPE they can salvage what you need. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you. Brian

    This reminds me of the time a woman came into my shop in 1997 (I was managing a computer business at the time) with her keyboard all gummed-up by dried Coca-Cola, which her son had knocked over. Talk about sticky keys!

    Well, she was open-mouthed when I just walked over to the kitchenette sink, turned on the tap and ran warm water all over the keyboard, making sure to get it down into all the gaps.

    I took it outside, swung it around a few times to get the droplets off and then plugged it into a testing PC we had in the front office.
    It worked perfectly and she looked as if she'd just seen magic performed!

    What she didn't realise - and what I didn't explain - was that it was a membrane keyboard and essentially unaffected by a shower of water.

    Unfortunately milk is incredibly corrosive to metals... doesn't even have to be goat's milk...
