Mankind is basically a battlefield... a dark cellar in which a well-bred spinster lady and a sex crazed monkey are forever engaged in mortal combat, the struggle being refereed by a rather nervous bank clerk. -- D. Bannister
I love the web. Do you know why? No, it's not just because
of the plentiful, easy-to-locate pornography and baseball
scores. It's also because of stuff like this: pages with
no other real purpose than to give you lists of universal
I bought this universal remote at MacFrugals, which is basically the same thing
as Pic 'n' Save or Big Lots (depending on your geographic location.) It was
real cheap and I needed a stupid universal remote. But then one of the VCRs had
a problem and we had to switch it around with another one that was sitting in a
closet or something, and there was some problem involving hooking it up to the
TV, so we had to use a different TV, which was also sitting around in a closet
or somewhere, so the remote control was no good because I lost the little
booklet which came with it so all we could watch was channel 3, which was all
blue, all the time.
But then I noticed the name of the remote, and I thought, "Hmmm... maybe they
have a website."
And of course they did! As a matter of fact, when I was describing this to my
girlfriend, she pointed out that when the Web first came into existence, one of
the very first types of pages that started showing up was pages full of codes
for universal remotes! Because everyone loses that stupid-ass booklet that
comes with the remote! HaHA!
Anyway, go to the website, decide which model remote you're using (One For All
helpfully places the model number on back of the device) and wait for a big ol'
screen dump full of tasty cold codes! Now I can watch wrestling again!
This is a good service. Remember, if anyone ever starts complaing onto you
about those evil universal remote companies and how they smash the poor and
whatnot, remind them about those pages on the web full of codes, which are there
for YOU, friend.
