Techie tip of the millenia

Remote control batteries flat?

Pressing them harder not making them work any better? (blokes...)

Looking at the end to see if you can see the flicker of infra red?

Well DON'T

Use the camera from your mobile phone. The CCD chip that is the lens of your camera receives IR from a remote control, so you can actually see a flicker of light where the LED is.
