With flowcharts! Also a nice thick book on PC repair (I'm beefing up my hardware skills).

Not as cool as a hovercraft, but certainly geekly.

Pocket Pogo Touch Screen Yahtzee. Something to do besides read...

Gave: Moved the home AP from one end of the family room to the other, hanging from the wall above the kitchen door. Instant bars throughout the house. :-bd

Where to find K'nex

by The Flaming Maiden Contributor In reply to Ooh!

I found the smaller roller coaster at Wal-Mart, and I know that's where the fighting robot sets came from as well. The Ferris wheel was purchased at Target. I also saw a lot of K'nex stuff at Toys R Us.

hth!

I mean, come on!!! What's the EFFECT?!?! I gotta KNOW!!!
