Definitely we should have a key to immediately start playing "Stairway to
Heaven" on all players. Possibly on all players across the globe, then we
can all have synchronised Stairway! Any takers, I think I know how to do it
in VB!

I would also like to have a feature where I hold the remote straight
up, the end glows and the player starts to play Freeeee Biiiiiirrrrrd!

Right that's it, I have to rant about Freeeee Biiiiiirrrrrd (as you
Americans so quaintly call it).

When I was in University here in the UK in the dark ages, someone (doh)
thought it a good idea to make Freeeee Biiiiiirrrrrd the last (slow) dance
at the disco. So come 8 mins to midnight, on came Freeeee Biiiiiirrrrrd and
you grabbed the partner (in my case young lady, but each to their own) of
choice and started a nice smooch. But of course those nice chaps with the
long beards had the last laff.

They just sped up the song. So you start off nice and close smooching
round. Then by about 4 mins to midnight, there you are trying to carry on
your slow smooch, but holding on to someone's nice (erm, what's the right
word?) a*se for all you are worth, whizzing round faster and faster, untill,
thankfully, blessedly, the song ends, midnight happens and the lights come
on.

At this stage the only decent thing for a Brit to do is to look slightly
embarrased and slink off! Well, ok maybe not :-)))
