Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So about an hour ago my husband spilled about half a glass of water onto his laptop, which was on and plugged in. The water went mostly on the keyboard and a side speaker, but some also went into the fan vents. The laptop looked like it shut itself down, but we obviously don't know for sure. We unplugged it immediately and tilted it to get the water out from inside and sponged off the water on the outside, and then took out the battery (which stayed dry and looks fine). I've told him to leave it open and to leave it for a day before he tries turning it on again.
Now to the questions:
a) I looked a bit at things online, and some recommended taking the laptop apart, but I don't know if those are mostly for if you've spilled something sticky like soda. Should I take it apart (as much as I can) to let it air out more?
b) it's a work laptop, and he...has work stuff on there. So he'd obviously like to get it back and working asap. Can I let him try it in the morning tomorrow or make him wait a full 24 hours, or am I being overcautious and could we try it out later on today?
