Stinky keyboards?

A survey of 150 information technology managers at Sunrise Software, a British company, shows that printer issues were the most common reason for a help desk call. But the survey also shows that in any given month, more than half of the service people had to handle various food-related problems. They encountered everything from potato chips in a CD drive, to keyboards ruined by spilled coffee and PCs melted to desks by an unknown substance. According to Best Buy’s Geek Squad, which services small business and home offices, keyboards are often rendered unusable by crumb buildup, and spills and odors from decaying food particles.
