    Oh, and going against the grain, much prefer the first tie ;-)
    Not a bad idea there, when the donations are enabled again i know that all of the money raised by that will be going to charity, so this would also be another way to make money

    Making things available to purchase via the site is something that has been in discussion for time now, and when the admins have found the best solution for this it will be made available

    I'd have one of each

    I would prefer a tie that was 'old school' style ... that what I can wear it at meetings / events and it gets recognised by those who should recognise it, but is not blatant branding. I frequently wear branded EG stuff anyway the same way I do with MS, Apple, Tux, etc ... but most stuff is just things that identify me as a geek of some sort (alt.fan.pratchett, O'Really, ThinkGeek, etc ...) I will probably get whatever merchandise is available anyway ... I think I am now the only person with a complete set of everything put out so far (including the early t-shirts and mugs).

    As for the handshake ... there already is one for tech support ... and I'm not talking about an SSL handshake either.

    If we are to do this properly with a silk tie (if I can get one) then trust me when I say that adding 10% on top for charity would make it very expensive. Even a ployester tie would be about 20 for a design like that.

    Wouldn't really be the best thing to wear whilst at work, unless it was rubber oppose to metal

    Oh yeah

    I wear 8 rings every day and have no issues - that's because I am careful to turn off the power and keep away from capacitors and the like as I was taught by my lecturers.
