( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
When I want to watch TV, I turn on 3 devices with different remote control units, and configure them to the current task.

I bought a fancy omnipotint remote a few years ago, and never used it again after the batteries ran out.

Why? Nice idea, but they missed a few issues. First of all, a touch-screen is pointless when I operate it by feel alone. Worse, I have to turn it to face me to read the LCD screen, but upon doing that the IR emitter is pointing upward; I have to locate the touch spot then turn it sideways to by vision then "push".

I'm sure the designers went to great length to make it interface with a PC and download codes from everything and have macros that work properly and state-changes and all that good stuff. But it doesn't work at its basic task! And for reasons that are not related to any of the things mentioned on the box, or probably mentioned on their product requirements document.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
