As a quick break from software, I spent a little time this evening soldering together my TV-B-Gone Kit. It was way fun to break out all my microelectronics gear. Gave me an excuse to clean up my desk. This thing is the silliest tool ever: it’s programmed with a mess of TV remote codes — but only those to turn off TVs. So, just point at a TV near you, hit the button, and it’ll almost certainly turn off.
