Well I guess I'm a jackass then
But in all seriousness, I don't use the stuff I make for evil, even the TV-B-Gone and the Capslocker (once I get it made), it's just fun to make. And how did you figure 27.8? I thought it was 2.78... and then does that mean it is off for that amount of time as well?
(Plus I don't live in a city, and I haven't even seen any of those receivers anywhere yet, it may take some searching)
