Call up the vendor and get a keyboard. Keyboards in laptops now-a-days are pretty easily swapped out. Some are just four to six screws in the bottom of the machine, others have "locks" hidden in the keys that you move or twist to unlock the keyboard to take it out. Just be careful of the ribbon cable connecting to the keyboard to the motherboard. Those are usually short cables so don't go ripping the board out once it's released. Those cables are usually plugged into ZIF connectors. Carefully open that connector and you should be good to go. There's really not much to it.

The Goat Lobby recently published a strategy paper on this for infernal use only; it has been leaked by the Sheep hacker group "Lambs of Zion." The paper describes Google's program as an "udder disaster," and pooh-poos the idea of a threat from organized cowdom as "more breaking wind from the methane factories."
«There is a spectrum, from "clearly desirable behaviour," to "possibly dodgy behavior that still makes some sense," to "clearly undesirable behavior." We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
The cows suspect nothing, as always. I'm already charging batteries and this afternoon I will head out of town and fly over their pasture. Before, I will have to weigh the rotor blades and try to reduce the vibration at the (improvised) camera mount. The videos from last time looked like they were filmed underwater.

"You mean like from space?"
