    A lot of the "senior" (older/first joining members) don't seem to be posting as much anymore...
    Kinda makes me sad cuz when I joined the board there were some really special quilters out there...
    Made this board really fun, educational and supportive and it helped a newbie like me!!!
    I miss 'em all...

    Let's hope she is on vacation, or that her computer went down. I haven't seen her on for a while now.

    Shadow is doing fine.
    She'll be back soon and let you all know what's been going on.

    I miss them too. But I understand because you eventually get tired of posting the same advice over and over again. Im sure they are lurking.
    Just need to find the right question to spark thier attention.

    Yes, I've written her as well with no replies.

    I had hoped that all of us as a community would be a support
    to her. I know (from the little I DO actually know) that this has been a
    trying time for her.

    We just want her to know that we think about her and wish her
    well! :lol:

    the last i heard from her - i had mentioned quitting smoking and she asked me how i quit. this was all in pm's. i told her i asked God to take away my desire for a cigarette and HE did. it's been little over a year now that i quit and I never craved a cigarette. that's the last i heard from her. my keyboard is nasty dirty, how does everybody clean their keyboard? mine gets crumbs and cat hair & no tellin what else. i've deep cleaned it before with a Q tip & alcohol, and i shake crumbs out of it but it's still dirty.

    I actually take mine (keyboard) completely apart bout once every 3 months..
    stick all the plastic parts in warm soapy water and give 'm a good scrubbing
    then rinse in hot water.
    Just make sure you DON'T get the lil wafer thin plastic thing with all the squiggly things on it inside wet anywhere..
    even a lil water can cause problems.
    then I spend an hr or more making sure all the plastic pieces are dry.
    I'll use q-tips and blow dryer and even smack 'm on a towel to get all the moisture out of them.

    Hope Shadow's doing okies and pops in when she can :)

    I know that part of it is that she was moving, so that along with everything else, she is probably taking a break and trying to get settled in.

    Actually mine are pretty well stuck into the frame of the keyboard.. not had any pop out yet.
    Only thing I've had probs with is the lil rubber things that are underneath them that stick to the circuit board (that really thin flimsy thing inside keyboard with all the squiggly lines) they tend to move on me when I go to put it back together lol.

    Staples and Office Depot have very inexpensive vacuums for the keyboards, and they have enough suction to get into the crevices. They do a good job.

    Funny about this topic - I've been wondering the same thing - where's Shadow? Watch, she'll be back with some masterpiece.

    I don't know about the keyboard on a laptop, but a separate keyboard pops apart really easily. A staple remover works great, or a flat screwdriver.

    I taught keyboarding one year and re-arranged the letters so there was no help if the kids looked at their fingers. I believe everyone should learn to touch-type!

    I don't clean mine. I don't eat over it and it is in a room that is closed off to the cats in the daytime. Occasionally I buy a new one, they are cheap. The old one goes to the charity shop.
