What not to do with coffee

My waking-up drink of choice is coffee. Few things are nicer then a cup of coffee drunk sitting up in bed while I slowly wake up.

Alas, a cup of coffee in the morning is not what my laptop likes. This morning's cup was not drunk, but dropped and spilled in equal parts between my laptop and the duvet.

The laptop is drying in the airing cupboard: DH is hopeful that the data might be retrivable...

Oh dear, I did a similar thing last year - and my laptop was only 7 months old. I was so upset the man at the insurance office, had to calm me down! Luckily, I do back up most of my stuff onto a hard drive. I hope you did this ....?

It's not been backed up for a while, but DH is pretty certain that the hard disc will be safe. I hope he's right, there is a lot of stuff I really don't want to lose.

Hot chocolate is much wors. I'm sure it'll be fine...

Oh no! Hope the laptop and the duvet dry out soon.

Oh no! I really hope it turns out alright. The hard drive SHOULD be OK but life so often doesn't play nice.

I've got my fingers crossed for you.

Black coffee seems to be the least troublesome, but orange juice (which I am assured is one of the worst) had no lasting effect on the one I spilled it on.
