Bugger. After spilling a drink of green cordial into the keyboard of my PowerBook (just 6 months old) I am left to marvel Apple's design. Its great that the keyboard is effectively sealed from the rest of the keyboard. So my drink didn't make it to the electronics. That's good.
BUT, how do you clean it? I pulled the machine apart (there are a LOT of small screws) with the hope of pulling the keyboard off and cleaning it. But its sealed... so I have to put up with a few sticky keys. Everything in the lower left quadrant is somewhat slow to respond. Oh well.
Some people come here for my Fortran page. Others want my PhD thesis titled Quantum Waveguide Theory (which is available from the UWA library) or my Honours thesis titled Quantum Chaos in Second Harmonic Generation - Stu.

No longer naffed
Got annoyed enough with sticky keys that I gently pried them off the keyboard. Turned out the cordial had glued the little hinges together in the keys. Soaked them in water for a few minutes, put them back on and keyboard is back to normal. Well, except that I accidently put a few on upside down and can't be bothered fixing them.

Rule 1 (for the thrifty Australian in the US)
If you stand at the coke machine long enough, get the trajectory and velocity correct and just the right hip nudge, you can trick the coke machine into accepting an Australian 10c bit as a quarter. That makes it 40c for a "Mug Root Beer" rather than USD1 (or AUD1.41). That's an excellent saving :)

On the 15th of December 2003 I was awarded my PhD with distinction. I passed without corrections which was a real bonus, I wasn't looking forward to having to rewrite any of it. Now that I have finished, my school/university days are over and I will continue as a working bum. Anyway, its time to go paddling...
