When you have a keyboard that looks like this:
(you should see the other guy)
and you don't have a spare usb keyboard and you don't have a ps/2 port because your computer is Steve jobs and some guy from marketings love child. You have three choices:

1. Buy a new keyboard....What am I? Made of money?

2. Fix the old one. In my defense, I have fixed this before. So look out for my 'How to attempt to fix a water damaged keyboard but end up with a very ugly paper weight guide'.

3. Improvise. This is what I do best, and here is what I did:

@tom I was actually looking at the new ones today, they also have the advantage of being a usb 2 hub vs usb 1.

@tony: thats the original screen protector peeling at the bottom.
