How Not To Celebrate Memorial Day

To commemorate Memorial Day this year, I spilled water into the keyboard of my laptop.  I shall have to find a less expensive and more convenient way to commemorate America's fallen heroes next year.  For now, however, I will be grateful that my computer geek consultant convinced me to buy a three-year extended warranty, which should cover the damage to the motherboard, and that the hard drive continues to be functional and therefore can be mirrored before the factory service which will almost certainly involve a memory wipe.

The rest of you will have to be content with continued slow output from me.

Please either get Carbonite or a Hard Drive to backup to. I use SuperDuper on the Mac. You were lucky if it was only the Motherboard.
