If anyone here is willing to help a guy out, it would be much appreciated. 


 

I just googled "replacement keyboard keys" and got a buncha hits: 


https://www.replacementlaptopkeys.com

https://laptopkey.com

https://quikfixlaptopkeys.com

https://www.laptop-keys.com/




All of them seem to have keys for MacBook Airs although I don't know if they have 'em for 2014 models.

That's a great cartoon, I gotta say.
 

Two months later, and I managed to fix it. Can't say I wasn't scared at first. Lol

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll keep 'em in mind when I'm doing my repairs.

I suppose I should read the article. Nah...

Logical fallacy there. Banks must spend far more on preventing robberies than they lose to them. Oh, your security means that you only lose a little? Well, it must not be worth the money then.

A new approach to Net Security.

STOP WASTING YOUR MONEY ON SECURITY 'SOLUTIONS'

Gartner projected $96B in cybersecurity spend in 2018. There were $45B in losses in 2018. You are giving twice the amount of money to security companies as you are to criminals. You do the math.
