Go to an Apple store and they will give you a brand new one. This happened to me with many keys, and I got a new one, no questions asked!

Because his spacebar is stuck and it's a good thing he's-writing-like-that-otherwisehe'dbewritinglikethisandnobodywouldbeable toreadit.

I don't think a keyboard that has stuck keys because of a spilled drink would be covered under warranty, but lucky for you, you can get a keyboard that will work with you Mac fairly inexpensively and using some nasty keyboard will learn you not to drink around your computer.

Take care, Margaret

It's actually amazing how well one can read that sentence even without the spaces. Not a quickly as with the spaces, but not bad.

Amazing thing that brain.

LOL

You can replace it yourself for 30 to 40 buck.

You spilled the drink, not Apple. (No questions asked, drip, drip, drip)

Karma and maybe even a commandment or two.

Yeah -

Future shop has the Apple keyboard on sale right now for $30 and the wireless one for $50.
The Macally keyboards look nice as well although I haven't used one so I don't know how they feel. They start at $29.99.
