View Full Version : spark creativity w/ $25

May 6th, 2010, 06:21 AM
As part of my "get much more involved in Ubuntu Forums" goal I am posting a hypothetical situation that I recently faced: I had $25 to spend on nerd toys...then I realized that mother's day was this sunday.

So lets assume that you don't have to buy something for mom...I am curious to see what kinda of electronic devices or projects forum members would use $25 on whether it is some plain device like new mouse or an LCD temperature monitor for your server room/PC.

A massive great big load of foam to shove inside my PC to silence it!:D:D:D

(A new case would probably be a more sensible idea, but foam should be cheaper...)
