    Before you remove the keys, photo the keyboard layout or make a simple handwritten pencil copy of the layout. It will help to identify where to replace the keys after cleaning.
    That's way too seldom.

    2012 mutation of 2003 SARS virus?

    By the way, this is how infection is spread at Internet cafes if you are unlucky to pick one setup where the keyboard is dirty and previously used by someone with serious disease, maybe got their drippings or whatever bodily waste particles left behind.

    I brought my own keyboard to office..

    Yeh... a nest inside the laptop.
    This is at the bottom left of the LCD screen.

    I was wondering why ants kept coming out!!!!
    After this, no more!
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    What a sticky situation! Imagine if you get too engrossed in reading the books and the computer that you forgot about the transparent tray, trying to grab the sandwich but flips the whole tray. That would actually happen
