Can't believe it still works. My blackberry got knocked off the dash in my boat and was under water for about 10 secs.... I took it home and removed the battery, put it in a plastic bag, with some rice and left it off for the night.

Works like a charm still:thu:

Rice? Interesting trick - is that supposed to absorb the moisture?

Same reason you get grains of rice in salt shakers

Nice tip, remembering that one for the future

Yes, it absorbed most of it and then when I plugged it in the next day the heat from charging dried the rest out..:)

I hope you never need it but good to know.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
