    Ooh, there are so many things on (and inside) this keyboard... From cheesepie and chips to cookies and halvah. Some keys (surpisingly few) are starting to get sticky, and while it's a white keyboard, most of it looks grey. But as long as it still works, I don't plan on getting a new one.

    Like Zalbor I'm pretty sure that this keyboard was once white...

    By now my keyboard must have more of a nicotine addiction than me. Also vodka and chips live there. But the family computer keyboard... you will be beaten if anything comes even near it :p

    I remember how my friend's mom told her that she could never eat in front of their computer... My keyboard is plain disgusting, I don't really know about all the stuff that it's had to endure... I need to buy a new one soon.

    Well, I've got a new keyboard, less than a month old, so this one will only have dust, and a few crumbs, in it so far. Give it year and it'll be full of just about everything.

    My last keyboards used to inevitably end up with coffee, coke, lemonade, water, biscuit crumbs, chocolate, toast crumbs, gravy splashes, pastry crumbs, and whatever else I happen to have eaten near it. The white/cream keyboards soon ended up with greyish keys, worn smooth with use.

    Knackered my dad's number pad with a cocktail of Aftershock, alcopop, vodka and some other stuff. He wasn't best pleased.

    Mine is brand spanking new. If I even try to have a cup of tea near it my Mum goes crazy. Its scary :nervous:

    My laptop though is a different story, drinks like a fish. To such an extent I had to make an insurance claim to get it fixed.

    First thing I learned after learning how to turn the computer on - keep the champagne away from the keyboard.

    My son has no such qualms about feeding the CD ROM though.
