    My engineering training taught me to always check the box contents against the parts list before trying to assemble anything, you can save yourself a hell of a lot of trouble .

    I guess your computer keyboard is an IKEA one, judging from the "missing pieces" above?

    Funnily enough, that is what the first part of the instructions always recommends .

    I like assembling IKEA stuff. I find though that the order of steps (as prescribed in the instructions) is usually critical, but often counter-intuitive.

    This is the same lamp somebody was saying was really good for clearing yellowed lenses (I don't remember the source though).

    The last time I went to Ikea I went to get table lamps for a boudoir shoot, I came out over $500 lighter and without the lamps.

    That's a lot of meatballs...

    Actually, we have an Ikea here in Denver metro and I got my dresser from there. It was made in Poland, assembled nicely, all parts present and accounted for. A lot of their stuff is cheap, which is OK since it's inexpensive. But a lot of their stuff has rather poor design which is not something I expected to see from the Scandinavians.

    No, you need an ultra violet light for that.
