    Because the intent of the poll was the first Personal Computer you owned. Very very few people started off with their own mainframe.

    I'm not belgian but I play one on TV.

      At the very beginning of computer era very few people owned any computer at all, because it started with mainframes.

      When I am asked "my first university was..." I usually answer "St.Pete state university" and do not mean that I own it.
      Very few people own university

[ambrus]: 1nickt: in theory, it shouldn't hurt the electronics, but also could temporarily cause problems until it dries, and the inside of the keyboard doesn't dry quickly, because it's closed.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: that's the theory. the theory is also that it should have dried by Sunday morning, but it didn't. so I dunno.
[ambrus]: I'll try today evening if it works now.
