Today was nearly a grim day for me and my trusty mini 9. I had set it next to our coffee table when my 7 month old son decided to stand using the table. Of course I had a full 20 oz soda, lid off(I drink bottles so I have a lid! Duh!) and he swiped to grab it and knocked it off the table.... straight onto my Dell. It was on with the lid close, standing vertically on its side and got water in the keyboard, usb slots, power slot and in the back door too.
I managed to pop the battery out, and shake out a lot of water. Then did some disassembly, used a wet dry vac(I understand the static risk...) and cleaned with alcohol and compressed air. I then put it in a room with a dehumidifier and waited 6 hours. It booted without a single problem....
Oh, and BTW, I'M BACK! Many of you here may not know me or even remember me. I have been a member of this site since practically the beginning and a moderator for quite some time. I obviously haven't been active as of late but plan on trying to catch up and spend a little time around here.
