There is an alien living in my keyboard

No, the alien is not CJ7 nor is it really an alien but rather 2,202,060 living organisms residing within the many keys of my trust old keyboard. I say it is old as I bought it since I was in uni which was way back in 2002. That means my keyboard is about 6 years old.

I took an online quiz about the “health status” of my keyboard and here are the results.
2,202,060How Many Germs Live On Your Keyboard?

Definitely not something that I was hoping for but it sort of hit me that I better start cleaning my keyboard real soon. The amount of effort I put into cleaning my PC components aren’t really a high on my priority list but after reading about this tragic incident, and watching this amazing series, things just happen.

Anyway here is a picture of my current keyboard.

Of course there will be a close up shot as well.

Anyway I was just kidding about this being my keyboard. Mine is black and the key layout is completely different from what we usually get from Lowyat as mine has the UK layout version.

Notice that the “@” sign and the “” symbols are swapped? Yeah I get confused ALL the time.

Anyway, enough ranting. I need a good nights rest after a long day at work and cell group at church.
