I'm a hobbyist PHP/JavaScript programmer - recently back after a couple years of non-programming. My current fetish is WordPress. CSS is a weakness of mine, since design in general is also a weakness - I'm a little too "left-brained", or so I've been told.

comment I washed my USB drive. Any long-term risks?
Make sure to use regular rice, not instant...Minute Rice is less than ideal for absorbing moisture. If the device doesn't work after drying out, all hope is not necessarily lost. I've brought back more than a few cellphones from the dead that were thought to be gone forever because of water-damage. Find someone who works on cell phones and have them remove the motherboard (if a cellphone), then use (preferably high-grade) rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab to thoroughly clean it. Air dry. Before cleaning, if you notice scorch marks (indicative of fried componets), then it's likely unsalvagable.

Does this happen only with windows that were currently open, or to new ones opened after the crash? Also, does logging off/back on fix, or strictly rebooting?
