GeneralA great effect of press conferences Pin

Generally speaking, those one to two hour press conferences make me sick. We have a saying, "Boasting stinks". I have had a need to air out my living room every night the last week or two, even though I usually turn off halfway.

Tonight I decided to sit through it to the end. So that it wouldn't be at total waste of time, I switched my wireless keyboard off, so that I could first brush it off on the surface with a stiff brush. Then, section by section I flipped the keytops of - I can't do then all at once; then it would take the whole night to get them all back in the right place.

If you haven't done it before, you'd be shocked by the amount of hairs, breadcrumbs, and soils that have collected under the keytops! Especially if you've got a dog or a cat in your household. (I haven't had a dog for fifteen years - after that, my keyboard cleaning has been reduced from once every six months to once every three years.)

In an abstract sense, there is a connection between the sound from the press conference and what my stiff brush removed from the keyboard. After I got all the dirt out, the operation of my keyboard has become much smoother, much more reliable. I like it a lot more that way, after brushing out the dirt.
