    need a new one :(

    Any reccomendations? I mainly use the PC for playing games, so something with tiny keys = no-no.

    I'm also heavy handed (hence the spilling of the drink) so it can't be flimsy... I can break military spec gear :D

    lol ;) Logitech do one for about a fiver :D

    Might buy a couple.

    I washed my old one under the tap :o and got all the tea out, i'll just wait for it to dry out. In the meantime I'm using a REALLY bad 1990's IBM clunky keyboard :( ;(

    If your a bit heavy handed, in the long term I would scour boot fairs for an old Dell or IBM keyboard.

    They were built like bricks and were really meant to last.

    Typing away on an ancient Dell one here that cost 50p from a boot fair. :)

    (Made in 1991) :D

    Mm I have one of those IBM keyboards - really clicky keys, really hate them :D

    I think I'll just get a cheap £10 logitech and hope for the best. I left my old to dry overnight and it still doesn't work.

    Ho hum.
