I should try using a remote from the DVD or TV to see if it'll work on the frame. I don't want all the files on a USB imported into the device, just certain ones but I cannot do that yet.

    I recommend that you take AA or AAA batteries along if you do find your remote device to test which buttons work and which might need contact cleaner or a PASS. Or try local garage sales in case someone is parting with devices (it's hard to find e-recycling events in #HamOnt; if someone is moving, chances are that some gadgets are being sold or given away to lessen the moving bill for the household move).

    Last night, I spotted tubes of Glycomed hand cream at the impulse buys area of a Cdn Tire checkout and added one to my RFID case purchase. Now I have to use the cream every morning and night!
    Electronics from VV is a bad idea. New or bust. Huge headaches when things don't work. You can dump back there for free. lol

    Yes, this... and a very easy way to test a remote is this:
    With fresh batteries in (so yes, as Ciel mentions: bring some AA and AAA with you to VV or garage/yard sales).
    Turn the camera on your phone* and point the remote at your lens.
    By watching your phone screen, you can see the IR bulb on the remote flicker faintly when you push a button that works. (doing this in a shaded area is best).

    So even if you dont have the device it's supposed to operate to test, you can at least test if the remote itself works or not.

    .

    *(yes, I've made an assumption that your phone has a camera, but every phone I've had the past 15 years has had one... so yours probably does too)

    It grinds my gears when.... its moving day & its a torrential downpour! (not me but big sis).... she had until 6pm to move out & the new tenants pulled up at 2pm
    Its a good thing sis was all done, she was even nice enough to hire a maid to clean the house.

    I hate moving more than anything....

    When you get a really good deal on something that you've had your eye on for quite a long time only to find out that it's a lot bigger than you thought but you reeeeaaallllly don't want to go back out because you've already put in 8 1/2 hours at work and you're exhausted

    ... when a neighbour is a moron!

    Neighbours have branches come off their tree and they do not want them on their property so they move them into the street ... the definition of morons! Myself and another neighbour cleaned them up and will put them out next yard waste day.

    ETA: two people have boxed in this neighbour's car and gone for dinner in the neighbourhood! Karma's a beatch! He comes out and is aghast! ROFL!

    Getting tired of hearing "oh, did you go all by yourself?" from people. Really, am I suppose to call everyone I know to ask if they would like to go out, before I leave my house. People often say, 'we should go out together' but never have the time. Friends say..oh, it must be lonely being a widow...well, it is. BUT, stop asking if I went out all by myself....I am not a hermit. If I want to do stuff, when I can afford it, I can do it on my own.

    Can't fix foolish. I still have trash all over neighborhood after Halloween rain and wind on THURSDAY. C'mon people the wind is not going to blow that trash into a bag. Lets keep the neighborhood tidy.

    As for parking that is a long standard pet peeve. I don't own the street but people insist on parking right in front of my house for days and days on end. Phone call to city fixes things real quick.

    And literally ZERO movies commemorating our fallen soldiers. (ie: Saving Private Ryan should be mandatory viewing for Rememberance Day... just my two-cents)
