Debugging a Powerbook

Here's an unfortunately true story I recently heard from a friend who's an IT underling and thus has to deal with helpdesk calls:

A caller was asking for some help/advice with his laptop, a Powerbook. Basic gist of his request:

"Can you tell me how to get these cockroaches out of my Powerbook? I'm tired of seeing their heads poke up between the keys."

My response on hearing the story (after the obvious "Eeuuuchh"):

"Isn't that a known issue with apples?"

3. No cheating/skipping
