K160RX 160M Option for my K2 amateur transceiver
9 out of 10
Adds another band to my existing K2 ham transceiver. 160M is a tricky band to work with, but for $40, complete with another RX input, this is a very good value add-on for my radio.

Almost any Home Automation stuff (110v!)
7 out of 10
I'm not a fan of X-10's popup ads and other aggressive marketing techniques, but there's plenty of companies APART from X-10 who make devices which use the X-10 protocol, and there's loads of other home automation stuff. There's home automation books, devices, controllers, etc. Almost anything would interest me.

Beware! Don't choose anything that's 240V-only, as Canada uses 110V!

War On Terror - The Board Game

It's got suicide bombers, political kidnaps and intercontinental war. It's got filthy propaganda, rampant paranoia and secret treaties and the Axis of Evil is a spinner in the middle of the board.

DVD region-free hack for Sony DVP-CX850
7 out of 10
The DVD people sell only broken DVD players, which play only DVDs from your home "region". If you buy cheaper DVDs whilst abroad, you can't play them on your player. To make matters worse, they have adverts on the start of films that you're NOT ALLOWED to fast-forward through, even if you've seen it a dozen times before and hate it! How stupid is THAT?!?!? Luckily, this is a free country, and people sell little gizmo's which can fix your player. You can then pretend you're in the USA and play USA titles, and fast-forward through the waffle - exactly like any CONSUMER's DVD player would do. I'd like one of these modifications for my DVP-CX850. I'd like it to be the type where I can choose a region, NOT the ones that try to choose automatically, as recent RCA titles aren't fooled.
