    If you take the plastic cover off of the memory card all you will find is a solid block of plastic with some metallic contacts embedded in the plastic. There is nothing to be damaged by liquid.

    I think it's pretty clear he got so excited at seeing a national record (which is unbelievably awesome BTW, wow!) that he pee'd his pants* sd card fumbling commenced after that.


    *If I had a possible new species record, I'd probably wet myself too.

    Don't worry. Pee is sterile. Your computer will not likely be infected with any virus.

    Am I the only one that gets the impression that the OP had an event that caused an embarrassing moment and we haven't heard the full story?

    Actually, no. It's a myth. The bacteria in urine does not typically grow in a culture prepared for UTIs, and that's where the myth comes from. But if you do a DNA analysis there are other bacteria present.

    Hang on. Let me get out my lab equipment. I haven't done anything with my sequencer for quite a while now, so it will take me some time to retrain myself on how to use it. :048:
