No idea. Haven't had to change my remote control since quite a while. Also don't have a TV.

Re: What do guys want... Valentines Day

A spa voucher
Massage, champagne and a free day just for myself...
Oh wait, does that go against the romantic purpose?

The wife brought home a 2kg horse steak.

I wonder what else she has planned.

Re: What do guys want... Valentines Day

Actually... regardless of what they may actually want, what did you all get your significant other this Valentine's day?

Mr Rufus got a card, some chocoate and, as he's away working this evening, an IOU.

I made truffles from acmilan's recipe and sent him a cheesy e-card. He brought home some amazing flowers and made me a steak dinner.
