#616: You can fly high, let's get naked

So I just finished watching ep 12 of Umisho...and I just about busted a gut laughing at it.

(The title of this post is the first line of the OP theme.)

Umisho is really, really entertaining. It's basically a sports anime series--it's about a high school swim team somewhere in Okinawa, I think--and it's full of interesting characters.

It's got good fan service, too. All the girls are extra-cute. I think Shizuoka--the shy, quiet, yet perverted girl--is my favorite.

I think it's a 13-ep series, which is a shame, because it's a lot of fun.

I am writing this entry, by the way, using a Logitech RF wireless keybord I bought at work a few weeks ago. It went clearance, and at $20 I thought I'd give it a try.

I wanted it primarily for use as a remote control--the media player control keys work with Media Player Classic, which I use to play the files I get from the various Torrent sites. Otherwise, if I want to pause playback I have to get up, go to the wired keyboard, and hit the correct key. This way is better.

But for this and that reason I left it in its box until this afternoon--I decided I'd give it a try. To my surprise I didn't have to disconnect the wired keyboard and mouse, nor even put in the driver disk--score one for Vista, I guess--and so here I sit, in my rocking chair, surfing the web and putting in another post here.

But to be honest, this keyboard is not really to my liking. The editing key arrangement is nonstandard and annoying. I go to hit "end" and hit "delete" instead.

And the only place I would use the wireless keyboard, really, is in front of the TV. I run the computer's TV video out through the DVD recorder, which adds about a quarter-second or so delay on everything I do. It's not bad for reading, and I think I can type all right, but playing games would pretty much be out.

Oh well. $20 for a remote control ain't bad.
