    Wink What do you want for Christmas?

    I don't know if most here look forward to presents at Christmas (that aspect of Christmas has gotten less exciting since I've gotten older).

    I've got no idea what I should ask for, and I always feel bad when I ask for nothing and my family spends money on things I won't use (it seems like a waste of money.).

    *puts on Santa costume*

    However, all of these boxes filled with illegal crime money are really cluttering up my house. So I was wondering if anyone had anything they were wanting for Christmas this year? Are there any games, books, or gadgets that you would like?

    O_o

    I tell people to either donate to one of my projects or Child's Play if I can't think of anything I'd find useful.

    But then, I have a few hundred books on a list I'd like to read.

    I've been wanting "The Room" (The puzzle game for Android; I already own the awfultastic film.) because I'm hugely fond of the genre.

    That looks pretty good, point and clicks do well with the controls. I had expected it to be based off the movie when looking it up, then I saw it had high scores, and the confusion WAS TEARING ME APART LISA!

    I still have a copy of Myst from years ago. I think it was one of the first games that I looked into the files of. I got stuck hard at some point, and we didn't have the internet then, so I ended up trying to cheat by playing with the files lol.

    That looks pretty cool. I keep thinking of getting a new graphics cards, then I remember I have a slim case on my PC, AND IT WOULD TEAR IT APART LISA! (Unless it was low-profile)

    The "Myst" series was good, but I find the first games largely overrated thanks to the insane "Oh, you need to be a genius to finish the game." mentality.

    [Edit]
    Overrated isn't really the right word, but I can't find a better one.
    [/Edit]

    *shrug*

    I gave "The Room" a try; the game is worth the money if you are into that sort of game.

    This quite a mouthful, but I would like a Nakaya Gold fishes 2 by "Akatame and Kurotame" technique.

    I need a third monitor at work. Or the two mismatched hodgepodge monitors I have now can be axed in favor of three shiny new bling bling 27"ers.

    Also, a second 24" one here at home. That's it.

    Having a working bathroom is all I ask. ALL I ASK.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Any idea why a fountain pen would cost $2,100 ? It is made out of Ebonite which according to wikipedia is just a very hard rubber.

    Not using a bucket, but I do have to shower in the "kids" bathroom where I need to basically crouch to fit under the showerhead.

    It started with my wife discovering a little bit of mold near the baseboard inside a storage closet... Ended up with the entire master bathroom torn down to bare framing and building it back up again. Taking a sledge hammer to a tile shower is definitely something everyone should try at some point.

    The new bathroom includes 30% more square footage, integrated sound system, double shower heads, jetted tub and has a skylight so uh... I won't be buying a new car any time soon.

    The lacquer + gold/silver/etc powder techniques required to get the artistic design on the ebonite body.
