Well, that sucked.
About this time last night, tragedy struck: I spilled Gatorade all over my laptop. Holy fuck. Not only did it not turn on, all of my work was unsaved, and I had no backup. Holy fuck. Not only did I apparently kill my laptop and lose all of my work, the super-awesome expensive warranty that was advertised to me to be a-fucking-mazing and cover every possible thing on earth --- *deep breath*--- doesn't cover accidental spills. Holy fuck.
Sucks, right? Well, after a fellow computer-nerd of a friend and my own voiced our opinions, we did the smart thing and decided to open 'er up and blow dry the fuck out of it. This was a good idea compared to one where I was advised to soak it in distilled water and let it dry (which is perfectly logical, just kinda risky)
To my incredibly great surprise and relief, I am now typing to you from my zombie laptop. Functions fine.
The keys are really hard to push down though.
