Big scary moment last night

While getting some work done in the office last night we had a bit of an accident. There was this mug of water on the desk next to the laptop. The laptop was open and on. You see it coming don’t you? The mug just turned itself over, all by itself. Really. It could happen. The wife ran for paper towels while I turned off the laptop and inverted it to drain off as much of the water as I could.

It took paper towels, cotton swabs, a blow dryer, a screwdriver to remove the battery pack and the hard drive and a fifth of gin (for the wife) and a bottle of tequila (for myself). Obviously, it is up and running again. Amazing what speed, the right tools and good tequila can do.
