The US Army launches a spaceship to the Moon. In the control room a general asks the computer:
"1. Will the spaceship reach the Moon? 2. Will the spaceship return to the Earth?"
After a short pause the computer answers: "Yes."
"Yes what?" asks the general angrily.
Long pause. "Yes sir."
I built an infrared remote control for PC using a freely available guide. All remote controls I tried work with it. Microcontroller Atmel ATmega8A is used in the circuit. I had to overcome a few caveats, all is described on this page.
