So since we've been discussing my toxic fingers...
Anyone have any advice on how to handle computer keyboards whose letters wear off? It doesn't matter much for me and M since we know how to type, but it's a bit rough on poor Scott when he's trying to play alphabet games on PBS kids.
For awhile we had a standard off-white keyboard with black letters. I wore the markings off it. We didn't care until we felt bad for Claire when she was using it and couldn't find the letter she needed. Not to mention the fact that my dad would come to visit and whine to no end about it. (He's more of a "seek and ye shall find" kind of typist.)
So when we built a new computer a little over a year ago we bought a nice black keyboard to match our new case. Within a couple of months the letters started to wear off that one too. It's now so bad that about half the keys show only half a letter. Scott can't really identify the letters. And I keep asking M why we bothered getting a new keyboard? At least with the old one we could have just used a Sharpie to write the letters back on. Classy, no?
Lame plastic covers? Expensive laser projected keyboards? I've seen a lot of possibilities, but nothing cheap and elegant. Can anyone think of a solution that doesn't involve exorbitant cost or hideousness?
For now I'm leaning toward white nail polish and a little polyurethane.
