Re: Space-bar-is-broken

But that's UncleB's excuse. He is always spilling or spewing something on his keyboard [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

you are correct [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] and I almost did it again 2 minutes ago when catshooter nicknamed wildcat " the hyphen-king" on another post. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
just buy a new one it is cheaper than sending it out for repair ,I know because I have been through this a few times as BB has pointed out. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.

Re: Space-bar-is-broken

(regarding the keyboard...) I didn't even take it apart. It got gritty, and I washed it in dish washing detergent and rinsed it - 24 hours later it was back in service.

Re: Space-bar-is-broken

When it goes out for repair, I would definetly have the keys blueprinted and trued, maybe have the keystrokes lightened or go with aftermarket adjustable keys. Heavy keystrokes are a major contributor to spelling inaccuracies. And when it's set back in the case I would have it bedded. Marine-Tex is my preferred but to each their own. That way you wouldn't have to worry about warpage in the event of another coffee attack.
I am glad you clarified because when I read your other posts I thought you were being Uber "matter-of-factly"

Re: Space-bar-is-broken

Canute's post gave me the first laugh of the day... I pitch in too, but we should get the model with the "Wife alarm" - the "Hyphen King" need all the help he can get. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
