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.

The college students have started to return to campus, making this a great time to look into new software for science and engineering disciplines that require high-quality equations for papers, reports, and other publications. Traditionally, creating equations has been a time-consuming, difficult process, and the results seldom looked as good as the surrounding text. With MathMagic Personal Edition, you can create complex equations and export them in TeX, EPS, GIF, JPEG, or PICT format for use with word processors, presentation programs, or graphics software. MathMagic Personal Edition works with Mac OS X, the classic Mac OS, and Windows.
