It's a sad day

My computer yesterday had an unfortuante mishap with a glass of orange juice. While I don't think I lost any irretrievable information, I may have lost my laptop. Any tips or earned wisdom would be appreciated. The ambiance of this university computer lab pales in comparison to the coffeeshops and offices that my laptop once graced.

    Laptop hard drives are fortunately not hard to remove and transfer to a new machine or a desktop. If you get a little USB enclosure, you can put the drive in it and plug it in to another computer -- instant external hard drive. If the laptop is kaput, maybe this will make recovery a bit easier.

    Alan: Good to know. Now if I can just locate a friend with a USB enclosure lying around!
