Feeling old now...

Pointed out to someone yesterday that while the phrase "ultra-violence" may not be entirely gramatically correct, it has been in use since at least 1962, when Burgess published A Clockwork Orange. I remember reading that when I was 13 or so, say 1966-ish, when nobody had heard of it...

Remotes that work with projectors?

People keep nicking the projector remote controls from our labs, and they are VERY expensive if you buy the real thing.

Does anyone know of a reasonably priced universal remote that will work with Sanyo and Epson projectors? I'm despairing of getting a straight answer out of the One-for-all people. I'd like to buy several, so the price needs to be as low as possible.
