Thanks for the reply. I had indeed fallen into the 'fear of posting' trap as you say. The quote from Voltaire in one of my previous replies sums up why I feared to post:

The best is the enemy of the good.

I wanted to have the 'best' response and since I did not I refrained from posting what might have been a good response. But the thing about Perl is, and this is what many of us here love about Perl I think, there is rarely one single 'best' solution (as you say - TMTOWTDI).

This is something I deal with in my code as well, worrying too much about making something 'perfect' when my time would be better spent on other things.

[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.
