Judging from the high volume of extreme stories we receive, we figured every clumsy PowerBook owner could use this tip for when they spill water, soda, coffee, tea, etc. on their PowerBaby:

I hope that they have completely cleaned out the PowerBook and made sure to run some heat from a hot air blower over each part of the motherboard. Otherwise he might have some problems with corrosion of the metal parts on the inside of the computer. I have noticed this problem with pagers. When someone brings in a dry pager that they let sit and dry for about a month they come in and ask why it has stopped working. And for the most part it’s because they didn;t dry important parts of the motherboard of the pager. But a little heat should do the trick. And I hope they added a little heat to remove water that might be hiding under those chips on the motherboard.
