How often do you get a new keyboard?

My computer keyboard gets very worn out. The letters have completely disappeared. I was able to purchase a set of stickers to place on top of the keys but they are now curling and coming off. I guess I am ready for a new keyboard. This will be my third one. How often do you buy a new keyboard?

Wow, I've never had too many of the letters start completely wearing off before the keys themselves wear out! *laugh* I actually just had to replace my keyboard because the space bar was sticking. I think that it would have lasted a lot longer if I hadn't started typing constantly here on Mylot this past month, lol! I'm not sure how long that keyboard had already lasted for, but it seems like it had been quite awhile. But after less than a month of being on here, typing 60-100 responses a day, boy oh boy did the space bar start to go! LOL. I had the same problem with wearing out my mouse very quickly when I was drawing tons of snowflake designs on http://www.popularfront.com/snowdays a year ago! As soon as i started doing that constantly, my mouse started to wear out! So i can see how constant usage really can wear a keyboard or mouse out, and since I plan to keep typing here at Mylot a lot I wonder how quickly this new keyboard will wear out. Probably in a few months? I really don't know, though. I've never kept track up till now. ^_^

Well I change my keyboard after six or seven month.But I recently learned from a newspaper that a dusty or uncleaned keyboard contains innumerous amount of bacteria or worm.When we use keyboard those worm come across our body through our hand and can make us ill.If that is true then I have to clean my keyboard regularly from now on.

I have yet to buy myself a new keyboard. I usually can find someone throwing out their old one and take that. Sure it may be old, but it works!
