Where can I get a spare remote?

We have a set of different remotes in our living room, one for the TV, DVD player, satellite decoder, surround sound and video player. We always keep losing the one for the TV. Is there anywhere I can get a spare remote from?

Where’s my battery icon?

I’ve been using Vista for a few weeks now and all of a sudden my volume indicator seems to have disappeared from my System Tray. I used to use this quite often as my laptop doesn’t have volume buttons. Is there any way I can get it back?
