Key Bored

I just solved the mystery that popped up shortly after I solved the mystery.

And someone's going to pay.

The problem is pretty boring... our family computer's been malfunctioning on and off for a few months... sometimes, at the Windows login screen, none of us could type our passwords. It would require going into a profile with no password, and then going out again, or else restarting the computer.

I solved it a few weeks ago. Simple. Replaced the keyboard. Don't know why I didn't think of it earlier.

Then... it started happening again. With the *next* keyboard.

To the extent that I couldn't type in CERTAIN keys. Which was similar, but different. Was it the same problem? Was it the computer after all? How could ANOTHER keyboard need to be replaced?

I lifted the keyboard, considering unplugging it.






That's the sound of liquid splashing on your pants.

The liquid that came pouring out of my keyboard. Not dripping. POURING.

I couldn't recognize the liquid. It's a biy sticky. The smell wasn't familiar. It was kind of a dirty colour.

The only thing that I *DO* know...

... is that someone very close to me is aware that this liquid entered the keyboard. In massive quantities, at that. And didn't choose to mention it to the family computer technician.

I feel an Andy Sipowicz style interrogation coming on.

So, has the culprit been identified yet?
