I haven’t yet, luckily.  But, I worked for a cell phone provider and it was a constant customer service issue.  I don’t know about other electronics, but with a phone you take it apart completely and hand pat everything dry that you can.  Then you leave it open in a safe dry place for a few days.  I would say we had a 95% success rate, saving phones.  Sometimes, they just spend too much time in the water, and aren’t able to be saved.  It’s a good thing to read up on before an accident happens, that way you know right what to do when it does.

I’m with you.  I hate that brief moment in time when you realize you’re drink is about to spill all over the keyboard and there’s nothing you can do to stop it…what torture!

This actually actually happened to me today.  I had gotten up to do something and was just sitting back down and felt my arm hit something.  I looked and I all I could do was watch as my Coke ruined my keyboard I bought a couple of days ago.
