My advice? Take it back.
Take that advice however you'd like... but lemme give ya a bit more detail
before you decide....
I ruined my old keyboard with a liquid as well.
Like you, I also bought a new ergonomic keyboard...spent 60 bucks on it too.
I hated using it. It was so unfamilliar to type on....a few months later I spilled
the smallest amt. of ANOTHER liquid on THAT keboard and it broke. but that
was a blessing.
I went to STAPLES, bought a 15 dollar "logitech" keyboard and couldn't be
happier.... it's a meat & potatoes, familliar feeling keyboard arrangement...
and supposedly it's "spill-free".
Not only would I advise you to get this 15 dollar Logitech keyboard (or
something like it), but I'd be tempted to suggest to you to buy 5 of 'em
so you have enough decent regular keyboards to last you the rest of your
life no matter how you ruin any of 'em.
MAN...what a mistake it was to buy that ergonomic keyboard (for me anyway).
When I .... how do you say (?) .... think of my mindframe on this spaceplane, I'm Skywalker with my X-Wing like I was when I was a kid.
