Due to dissatisfaction, I will be inactive on Omnimaga until further notice. (?? THP hasn't been much success and there's also the CE. I might possibly be here for a while.)
If you want to implore me to come back, or otherwise contact me, I can be found on GitHub (bluebear94), Twitter (@melranosF_), Reddit (/u/Fluffy8x), or e-mail (if you know my address). As a last resort, send me a PM on Cemetech (bluebear94) or join Touhou Prono (don't be fooled by the name). I've also enabled notifications for PMs on Omnimaga, but I don't advise using that since I might be banned.

I got it for free when my dad trashed it. It's a pretty near multimedia keyboard and it just works perfectly. There is only one problem: It's wireless, so you have to change batteries from time to time. I think I'm gonna mod it so that you can plug in a power adapter XD
If you like my work: why not give me an internet?

THE QUICK BRON FO JUMP OVER THE AZY DOG

Not bad. This keyboard was made by Acer in 1995. It has a nice feature that whenever a triple keypress fails, the num lock/caps lock/scroll lock lights all come on. I've figured out that a triple keypress will fail if and only if it forms a right triangle in the following grid:

`InsertF256=-DeleteF9HomeIPgUpL.Ctrl
1234780OF10EndF12PgDnPrtScr
QWERUF1PF11K+K8K9ScrlLk
ASDFJK;K7\KEnterK2K3
ZLCVM,NumLkK1EnterPauseK/K*R.Ctrl
F7XF8BNDown/9SpaceLeftRightK-R.Alt
Escape.F4GHF6'CapsLkF5UpK0K.L.Alt
TabL.ShiftF3TY][K4BkspR.ShiftK5K6

The grid is probably related to how the keys are wired electronically. So how the sentence comes out doesn't have much to do with the quality of the keyboard really, just the arbitrary arrangement they chose. If they didn't put the left and right shift keys in the same row, then there would be only two keys incompatible with them.
Numquam te deseram; numquam te deficiam; numquam circa curram et te desolabo
Numquam te plorare faciam; numquam valedicam; numquam mendacium dicam et te vulnerabo

THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPS OVER THE LAZY DOG

ooooh my $130 cherry black mechanical keyboard has no problem with this :D


Spoiler For funny life mathematics:
1. ROMANCE MATHEMATICS
Smart man + smart woman = romance
Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy
2. OFFICE ARITHMETIC
Smart boss + smart employee = profit
Smart boss + dumb employee = production
Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion
Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime
3. SHOPPING MATH
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need.
4. GENERAL EQUATIONS & STATISTICS
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
5. HAPPINESS
To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
6. LONGEVITY
Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more willing to die.
7. PROPENSITY TO CHANGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.
8. DISCUSSION TECHNIQUE
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Girls = Time * Money (Girls are a combination of time and money)
Time = Money (Time is money)
Girls = Money squared (So, girls are money squared)
Money = sqrt(Evil) (Money is also the root of all evil)
Girls = sqrt(Evil) squared (So, girls are the root of all evil squared)
Girls = Evil (Thus, girls are evil)
*Girls=Evil credit goes to Compynerd255*

THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPS OVER THE LAZY DOG
works perfectly on that keyboard and its not a high quality one by any means. Could it be that this only affects usb keyboards? if so does that mean laptops ones are usb?
