    To see it working, activate the easter egg three times. Of course the
    second easter egg animation is my favorite.

    That's just the thing. i havent been able to trigger it, even tho I know the
    exact motions to do it. I can't seem to reliably press the buttons without
    getting an errant button.repeat that messes it up.

    It seems to be much more difficult than it used to be. I would suggest
    cheating. I was able to do it with the remote when I added a little
    feedback to show me how far along in the sequence I was.

    Other cheating options would be:
    Triplefat
    CLI to send buttons (not certain this would work, but worth a try)
    Web to send buttons (also not certain)
    Plugin with a button mapped to activate the egg.

    Oddly, its easier using squeezebox. I tried it out, nifty

    however, the vfD_ codes display in teh second one, so it looks a bit odd until
    you figure out what its doing.

    D'oh, that would be because I used the reverse function instead of the
    (non-existant) Slim::Hardware::VFD::reverse. Oh well, it's just an
    easter egg.
