TechSupport 101 - Cleaning Computer Peripherals

Things are getting really dangerous these days, so I thought I'd blog about something that would not put me at risk under today's rapidly increasing laws and ordinances. Also, trying to pre-empt what gets 'banned' or becomes labeled a 'criminal' act, next, isn't easy because - so far - I have found no method in this madness. I have discovered madness in the methods, but that's another matter!

Wracking my brains for topics, I though I'd try something that would be of use to computer-users, since we have been kinda left alone, so far, by the mushtandaas. Not wanting to go too far out out on a limb - for who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men - I thought a little product review would be useful and safe. So here's one of a product I could not resist buying as soon as I saw it. (The Meanderer who was with me was skeptical - as usual - and insisted that I was buying it for the packaging, alone. That's so-o-o not true!)

What is true, however, is that the first thing that does catch your eye is the packaging: The description of the product was too intriguing for me to pass up. Good marketing, guys!

(You may need to click on the image to read the details,
if your eyesight's like mine.)

The box contains a small brush for cleaning between the keyboard keys and a bottle of fluid for spraying on to the special cloth provided.

The cloth is high-tech according to the manufacturers and comes with its own instructions.

Also supplied is a little rubber thingy, with a suction cup (the kind you use to stick things on mirrors/walls) on its behind. I am still trying to figure out a use for it. It's not a squeaky toy ... coz all it does is hiss through the tiny aperture in its nose ...

... and it looks like one of Gary Larson's cows has mutated.

The bottomline is that the cloth and liquid work. Though I am puzzled about why the liquid is included when (presumably talking about The Cloth they seem to treat as if it came from Turin) the box says that it has "Same effect after using with water."


Does anyone think I've broken any laws even with this?

Absolutely priceless! Worth every paisa you spent. Just has to be from Japan.

Just back to offer some help. The mutant is a CatCow*, I figure, considering that the box says "MEW".

(*I guess that gives away not just what computer I have been using for a long time, but also for how long,)

Your gratuitous insult to Larson-saab is totally unwarranted! I am horrified at your attitude, although I hesitate to term it blasphemous!

Incidentally, surely what you heard emerging from that holey nose was moocus?

insult? as a larsonist i'd never do that. maybe it doesn't come across that well in the pics but i opened the box at t2f and a guy from a nearby table winked and said is that a larson squeaky toy you have there?

Well, I suppose that, given the lack of visual accuracy in the media and the general shortage of citizen-centric policing, your larsony is justified.

Well, the text on the packaging looks like it was lifted straight out of Google language translation tools... Priceless!
