my/initial/reaction/(internally)/was/like/this :computerproblem:
then/i/remembered:/equanimity... :meditate:
computer/keyboards/are/fabricated/after/all
and/all/fabricated/things/are/liable/to/decay
verily/all/things/subject/to/arising/are/also/subject/to/passing/away
so/to/get/this/reminder/means/that/something/good/came/out/of/the/event
but/now/i/really/do/have/to/get/a/new/keyboard/dammit
and/organise/my/desk/so/that/drinks/never/again/find/their/way/into/the/keyboard!

(just joking!!!)

You may be able to resurrect your keyboard by popping the affected key/s off and giving it a clean-up. I know you could do that with the old ones but the new ones like http://store.apple.com/au/product/MB110LL/B/apple-keyboard-with-numeric-keypad-english-usa?mco=MTA4Mzc4ODA# apparently can't be disassembled.
HOWEVER, you could try washing it - as per http://forums.macrumors.com/archive/index.php/t-1012230.html.
:jawdrop:
At your own risk, of course.

Hi, Manas,
With old keyboards, as in the pics above, yes - they are just clipped in. "New" keyboards (aluminium frame, low-profile keys) don't come apart ... return to previous post and read through the links. :tongue:

http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/using-your-old-pcs-keyboard-and-mouse-with-a-mac.html may be another solution.
