Taking a key off an iBook's keyboard

[ #24566 ]
For future reference:

<cog>anyone here with experience with *safely* removing keys from an iBook's keyboard?
<cog> any advice you'd like to share before I do this? :-)
<Masque> Yes.
<rjbs> I've removed them. It was no problem.
<Masque> Pry from the top.
<Alias> explosives are a bad option
<Masque> Not from the bottom.
* cog scratches the explosives from the list
<Masque> If you lift the top edge of the key, it should detach cleanly.
<Masque> You'll then need to slide it .25mm or so toward yourself before it'll come off.
<cwest> My iBook used to have the problem that sometimes my fingers would grip the top or side and rip them off part way.
<cwest> So I just snapped it back in place.
<cog> first attempt... failed...
<cog> I start typing without a's, you know what happened
<cog> s/^/If /
<cog> funny... I haven't been able to get it off yet, but from all the forcing... it seems it is no longer stucked...
<cwest> means to an end
<cwest> Wow, bonjour for windows.
* cog managed to do it with the fn key
<cog> now for the a
<cwest> I've been hoping for something like this.
<dan2bit> bonjour?
<purl> bonjour is one word, you plebian.
<dan2bit> bite me, bot
<cog> ll right! I mnged to tke if off!
<cog> not to put it bck in gin
<cwest> zero conf for windows, more or less
<knewt> purl, bonjour is also the new name for rendevouz
<purl> okay, knewt.
<dan2bit> ah
<cog> s/not/now
* cwest wonders when his server's power will be restored...
<cog> all right!
<cog> everything working now :-)
<cog> thanks, guys :-)

And yes, this was related to the yogurt incident.
