Disinfect Your Keyboard

Keyboards, particularly those shared by multiple people, harbor huge quantities of bacteria. If you want to reduce the chances of picking up your co-worker's cold, you can disinfect your keyboard with disinfecting wipes. To avoid damage to the keyboard, be sure to:

  • Unplug the keyboard before disinfecting it.
  • Squeeze out any excess liquids from the cloth to avoid liquid dripping into the keyboard.
  • Don't let any liquid from the wipe sit for long periods of time on the keyboard.
  • Don't scrub the keyboard, just lightly wipe down. Rubbing too hard leaves behind more lint.
  • Avoid cleansing cloths that contain bleach.

PC Setup 1.0.6 Yanked

Send Article to a Friend

PC Setup 1.0.6 Yanked -- Apple pulled version 1.0.6 of PC Setup from distribution last week due to "several" unspecified problems. If you're running PC Setup 1.0.6, Apple recommends to switch back to the correct version of PC Setup for your machine. If you've got a DOS Compatible 6100 system, you'll want to use PC Setup 1.0.3; for 630 and 640 DOS Compatible machines, use PC Setup 1.0.5. Watch out: these are big archives (2.6 MB and 1.3 MB respectively), and they have those funky ultra-long Apple URLs: [GD]
