A rather neater and less trouble prone way of scripting things (when you
are reduced to sendkeys etc....) is Girder, and application designed to
interface IR remotes to PCs.  There is decent support for trapping and
replaying windows messages, and it can be commanded from network sockets
as well as IR etc.  So you can use it as a sort of network controlled
version of Win31's macro recorder (whatever happend to that?...)
