what to do after spilling tea all over your macbook

framed prints from Keep Calm Gallery, how appropriate for this occasion.

Yes, I did that, the dreaded spilling of your drink all over the keyboard of your laptop. Here are the tips I found online: unplug, take out the battery, turn the computer upside down on top of a towel, let dry for a couple of days, maybe even a week. I am also going to lightly blow a hairdryer on it. I hope it works. Oy.

A day later it started up just fine, though the clock reset to 1969. Hmmmm. Everything else works, and, as a bonus, the laptop has a lovely aroma of earl gray tea.
