Hmm... I'm thinking of installing VNC so that can raise the volume on my desktop computer from my laptop. This is pure techno-geek laziness, so that I don't have to get up to change the volume. *ponders* Alternately, I could route the output of the soundcard through my main A/V system, and then just use my amp's remote control to raise or lower the volume. Ah, so much technology, so many decisions.
