Christmas List

This is now my birthday list.

Because my friends and family are so nice.

Unless otherwise noted, any items received multiple times will not result in any complaints. Pretty much everything here is under $100, and most are under $50.

  • An AeroPress and filters. $30 on Amazon.
  • Yubikey NEO. Gotta be the Neo, I already have normal Yubikeys crawling out of my ass.
  • BAWLS. Fscking delicious drink, not a ginormous amount of caffeine and way healthier than something like Monster.
  • Thanks Mom! A new wallet. Tri-fold, leather, black, vertical slots for cards (i.e. pull them out of the top of the wallet), preferably RFID blocking.
  • Thanks Mom! A less sh*tty case for my Nexus 7. Or a pogo pin dock for it if they actually release one (doubtful).
  • Thanks Bonnie! Milwaukee M12 screw gun, with an extra battery. A bit pricier – about $150 for both.
  • Thanks Bonnie! Security bits, including some small ones.
  • Thanks, me! (oh wait.) Want to be super awesome? Samsung Galaxy Note II or Galaxy S III. Off contract, unlocked, with a case and 64GB microSD card. Roughly $850 total. (Yeah, didn’t think so.)
  • Thanks, Bonnie! A new backpack. I’m 1.5 quarters from graduation and just noticed some serious zipper failure on my now 5-year-old backpack. I don’t think it’s gonna survive the year. Shop around for deals on this backpack, I’ve heard it can be as cheap as $50. Another possibility.
  • Will update as more ideas come to mind

In looking at the reviews on some of the items on your list, it seems to me the bit set and the Nexus cases have major flaws. Not sure how you want to deal with this. I for one am not willing to buy these items unless you have checked them out and are aware of the flaws.

I did check out the bit sets. I would need both – the first, CSH has, and while the quality of the molded case is sub-par, I’d rather have more bits and I know that kit has the bits I need. The second has some very small bits which I can use for the occasional repair of very small electronics, and is the only such kit I could find.

I’m also in need of a new backpack — the one I’ve been using for the last 5 years is about to experience a disastrous zipper failure. Doing research now, will update the post when I find some stuff.
