    Does that actually mean anything to anyone?

    Re: what no!!!

    I am guessing:

    Went to maplins today and bought service air *can of compressed air* to blow the stuff from under my keyboard. When I put the straw in there was no air in the can. I went back to the store and said that there was no air in the can and the man told me to 'just breath'. What?!?

    'Just breathe' as in, 'Just relax, man! Slow down, you're not making any sense!' ... Or... 'Just breathe on the keyboard'? :P

    While the former makes more logical sense, it strikes me that the intended meaning of the Maplin employee was actually to breathe on the keyboard

    is hard to prove that you just didn't discharge the can (no jokes) and came back asking for your money/another free can.

    We know you didn't, but its a little tricky to prove.

    You mean like a fire extinguisher has a gauge?

    I think the product is a bit too 'throw away' and cheap to include any form of high tec wizardry really...

    theres no liquid in it when it's empty. It would weigh less if it was discharged.

    For the prices I've seen some people charge for a can of air it should be gold-plated and come with a voucher for Vista Ultimate!

    is a complete rip off, seen some around the £8 mark for a little can.

    on an unrelated note, how do you get foam out of your PC?

    Did you include the fixing computers part in the one hour a week or just getting down the corridor through the <insert group name here> of teachers.
