You are not alone.  I did not like mine either.  For me, the FLIRC is 
designed backwards.  I need to program a keyboard key value for each 
remote control button, assigning the same keyboard key value to more 
than one remote button, but it does not work that way.  You can only 
assign a given keyboard key value to one remote control button.  Mine 
sits on a shelf too.  I find a full wireless keyboard/mouse combo works 
better anyway - and can be used for web browsing, email, and system 
administration too.
