THe shake method is highly effective in carbing beer up fast, but can be a bit unpredictable (too much carb).

Keep the PSI at around 30 and lay the keg across your lap (while your sitting in a chair of course).

Begin shaking the crap out of keg left to right. You'll begin hearing gas come out of the tank and into the keg (bubbling sounds). Shake the keg for 60-90 seconds or so. Stop. Wait until the bubbling stops. Repeat. Keep doing this about 6-7 times and then let it rest over night at the 30PSI.

Next day, close gas valve. Release any excess pressure from keg. Set PSI down to 8-10 (serving pressure), open gas valve and pour a glass. Keep tweaking this process until you get the carbing level you want. At room temperature you are not likely to over carb your beer with this process.

Oh...and get a refrigerator for petes sake.
