Just a quick "feature" request: Waterproofing.

Or, more specifically, coffee-proofing.

My left hand Alpha was down for a few months after ingesting an espresso. I've (temporarily) ruined two Kinesis Pros with coffee, a Fujitsu notebook drank a bottle of wine, and now my KeyMouse Alpha got (re)wired with coffee.

It took me two deep cleaning attempts to get it (fully) operational again. (I use high % isopropyl alcohol and qtips etc. to clean.) The second time, I had to take the plastic shielding off the board and take the board off and clean everything, but now it's finally working again. I'm just wondering if there is a spray on coating that you could use on the boards to safe-guard them from the inevitable liquid ingress (and maybe put some drain holes on the bottom of the keyboard, too ;-)

Anyhow, still love the product. Very impressed by the careful engineering inside the case, as well (nice custom board cover ;-). This was obviously all my fault, but I won't be the last person to disable their keymouse using a liquid, so perhaps you could prevent someone else's frustration down the road.

Cameron Purdy glad you got it working again. I will add to the requested features list.
