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.

Internet Providers!

Send Article to a Friend

Internet Providers! -- In an attempt to provide more complete information about Internet providers in the second edition of Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh, I'm seeking information about providers around the world who are not listed in Peter Kaminski's excellent PDIAL list. (To request a copy of the PDIAL list, send email to <info-deli-server@netcom.com> with "Send PDIAL" in the Subject line.)

I'll post the results to the net as well, and feel free to forward this to providers who might not otherwise see it. Please send me <ace@tidbits.com> four (and only four) pieces of information:

  • Provider name

  • Your <info@domain.com> address for additional information

  • Your voice phone number

  • A list of the area codes you cover for local access (and the country if outside the U.S.) [ACE]
