How to Fix a keyboard spill

You Will Need:

Soft cloth
Distilled water
Flat-head screwdriver
Cotton swabs
Digital camera (optional)
Rubbing alcohol (optional)

Step 1: 
Unplug the keyboard. For a wireless model, remove the batteries.

Step 2:
Hold the keyboard upside down over a sink or trash can and shake it vigorously to remove any excess liquid.

Step 3: 
Dampen a soft cloth with distilled water and wipe the surface.

Step 4: 
Remove the keys with a flat-head screwdriver.

Step 5: 
Wash the key sockets with a cotton swab and distilled water. Let them dry completely and then replace the keys.

Step 7:
Try typing again. If it still does not work correctly, clean it again, and hope for the best. Keyboards are among the most inexpensive peripherals to replace.

Step 6:
Type something on your cleaned keyboard. If it is not working properly, disassemble the entire keyboard by removing the screws and clean each component seperately. Wait until it’s dry and reassemble.

How to make a Custom skin in Minecraft

What you will need :
An idea for the skin that you want
Skin edit to make your custom skin

Step one :
Open Skin Edit. You’ll see a blank template and a preview of your character in-game on the bottom right screen.

Step two:
Start drawing and filling in the blanks. Don’t worry too much about making it perfect the first time. You can see in real time what your character will look like in that preview in the bottom right. Click on it to make the model stop running or turn it with your mouse to see how your character looks like from another angle.

Step three:
Once you are satisfied with your work, save the image anywhere on your computer. Navigate to the Minecraft Preferences page in your browser and upload the file of your new skin that you just saved onto your computer.

How to choose a college

What you will need:
A book or website with a list of colleges
A guidance counselor or college advisor

Step 1:
Have a talk with your guidance counselor. She’s seen it all—and will be able to offer suggestions based on your grades and interests.

Step 2:
If you have overbearing parents, ignore them. It’s time to start making choices for yourself. If they refuse to give you some leeway, threaten to get your face tattooed.

Step 3:Think about where you’d like to live. If you like to spend your leisure time playing craps, make a list of colleges near casinos. If you eventually want to freelance as a pirate on the open seas, Southeast Asia is the place for you.

Step 5:
Favor schools that offer a variety of programs you like. Your interests will probably change. You don’t want to make it to your junior year in astronaut school and realize you don’t enjoy spaceflight.

Step 4: 
Decide whether you prefer a small, medium, or large school.

Step 6:
Visit the schools you’re considering.

Step 7: 

Now consider how your academic record fits in with the schools you like. Look up the average academic statistics for entering freshmen, and compare them to your own.

Step 8:
Divide your list into three groups of schools: reach schools, good fits, and safety schools.

Step 9:
Now apply to six to ten schools, with good fits, safeties, and reaches in a 2 to 1 to 1 ratio—that’s one reach and one safety school for every two “good fits” you apply to.

That’s it—once your applications are out the door, drop out of high school and play craps until the schools come a-calling.
