    Geeky pressies

    Ok ... 'fess up ... who were the lucky bleeders to get video iPods?

    Anyone care to make the rest of us jealous with their pressie list?

    The only computer related stuff I got was a few accessories for my iPod Mini (case, car kit, etc) a few games (a year's subscription on World of Warcraft ... no time for EduGeek now ... got to lvl up!!!) and some DVDs/CDs.

    Oh yeah ... and socks ... again!

    How are they computer related? Well, the old ones are rolled into balls and get thrown at my mini-hoop when I get stressed because I have had to explain, again, why we don't allow *any* user to download exectuables in school!

    Lol, I also got the mini scaletrix. Got kind of boring after 30 minutes of it going around in circles. At that point I changes the polarity so one car went in the other direction. Two minutes of that and I felt sick.

    The only slightly-geeky pressie that I received was a digital photography mag from my Mum (and an X-Box game from my brother... he's the one with the X-Box not me!)

    Re: Geeky pressies

    I got a Logitech wireless (RF) keyboard/mouse set (LX700 - I use them at work and find them comfortable and actually not bad on battery life), and a set of 2.1 Altec Lansing speakers from my OH. Not bad really... mind you, I did buy the OH a Nano (shyed away from the video iPod for the very reason that I'd have spent Boxing day converting everything).

    As usual, the OH's parents bought each other techie presents, one being a wireless router - and guess who spent the 27th December evening setting it up when I should've been in the pub????

    Happy New Year everyone!

    Re: Geeky pressies

    I wanted a pair of Magical Trevor underpants, or a Toast King thong

    As it is, I will have to settle for the imminent birth of my first child in 3 weeks time. Not too shabby I suppose

    Re: Geeky pressies

    I got a nice black video iPod (60Gb). I'm shocked at how easily this things can get tiny scratches on them. Still very impressive though. I also got a DVB capture thingy from PC world (only £39), so I can watch freeview channels on my PC. Although this doesn't come with Mac software I purchased EyeTV (for Mac) from www.elgato.com which works perfectly with the USB thing. TV shows can then be saved as quicktime files for use on the iPod!

    So cool.
