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.

THINK C 5.0.4 Update

Send Article to a Friend

Symantec fixed the bug in THINK C 5.0.3 that we mentioned in TidBITS-149 and has made an updater available for FTP on <sumex-aim.stanford.edu> as:

/info-mac/lang/think-c-504-tcl-112-update.hqx

The update corrects problems with the Quadra, the code motion optimization, and other problems present in earlier versions. The file also includes a TCL (THINK Class Libraries) update that is identical to the one from the 5.0.2 and 5.0.3 updates. If you are currently using version 5.0 or 5.0.1 and use the TCL, you need this update.

If you have any questions about this update, or about THINK C or THINK Pascal in general, please send them to Languages Tech Support at:
