Hey Everyone!

The TechRepublic survey team is putting together "TechRepublic's Geek Gift Guide 2008" and they would love to hear what geeky gifts are on your geek list - for others as well as your own personal wish list.

If you could take a few minutes to complete the survey it would be greatly appreciated.

All your data will be kept strictly confidential, stripped of all personally identifiable information, and will
never be shared with a 3rd party.

The survey will be open until 11:59 P.M. PT on Sunday, October 19, 2008, so take a few minutes now to complete the survey:

Thanks everyone!

-Tammy :-)

I took the survey, but have you seen 'em? And you know, you
can run Windows (even Vista) on them...

The TR team much appreciates :-)

Haven't seen the new MacBooks yet, but I have heard a lot about them - might have to go and take a peek this week-end.

I'm looking at getting a MacPro.

I don't <i>need</i> one but I sure do want one.<br><br>
Edit: I wonder if there is anybody here that doesn't already know that I want one. :^0 <br>

Other places to avoid

by The Scummy One In reply to Don't go to Sears...

Costco, Macy's, Target, Safeway, etc..

really the only places visited recently that had a LOT of Christmas stuff out already.

However places that dont would be
Smart and Final, smaller grocery chains, and -- well, I cant think of anywhere else right now :0

1 place I was at already started (aside from candy of course) ditching Halloween/Thanksgiving stuff, letting it run out and then condensing for more Christmas cr@p.

It's annoying...

nothing like looking at Michael Myers turning around and coming face to face with Santa Clause wishing me a Merry Christmas.

No you are mistaken here Tammy

Those Xmas Trees are left over from last year and are only there to use as Demonstrations pieces to see how well the Chain Saws work.

I did that at one of the shops here last week asking for Petrol to test the chain saws out on the Xmas trees and the chain saws disappeared.

Silly people putting trees near chain saws. What else can they expect? :0

The TR Harley sounds nice even if I prefer Ducati's :0

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to What geek gadgets are on ...

Could be why I'm saving up all my Swag offers for something really big.

Sorry Tams but been there done it and I hadn't even see this thread at that point in time.

The only down side was the question asking how much I intended to spend that answer is easy Nothing, Nada, Zilch different to real life though as if I see something that I like I'll buy it. Same applies to what I have on a wish list I don't have anything but that doesn't mean that if I see something that tweaks my interest I'll not buy it or drop a few less than subtle hints.

But I have a feeling that SWMBO will be looking for other things this year as My Alarm Clock scares her it's a Darlek saying Exterminate and it's something she doesn't like being woken up by but I find it is the only thing that I don't sleep through. Probably because I'm getting beat up to TURN IT OFF NOW! Maybe another Binary Clock as the one I bought as a Crissy Present for myself was given away to someone else. That used to drive SWMBO nuts as well but I didn't have a problem reading it. :^0

Why thank you...

by tcavadias Staff In reply to The TR Harley sounds nice ...

so I take it you are on the newsletter list - which is good to know for feedback :-)

I have a Pink, white and lavendar Harley on my wish list Vaaaaaaarooooom with built in netbook, GPS and a nice stereo system :-D

We use to have a clock I couldn't stand - might explain why it no longer works or has its face anymore - for some reason each morning the darn thing would just jump off the end table right into a wall. I think something was wrong with it
