    Hey guys.. been awhile since I treated myself. Been saving, paying bills, gas, and meals, no toys recently. I have about $50 set aside for a new toy.. What should I get? Something electronic.. computer game, xbox game, gadget, etc..

    Anyone?

    Do you have one of those spiffy radio clocks that sets itself to the cesium clock in Boulder CO?

    Not knowing what equipment you have(Xbox, xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PSP, Nintendo DS, type of computer) it's hard to recommend that stuff.

    The xbox is essentially dead so there's nothing new coming. For the PC, the newest titles are Lord of the Rings MMORPG and STALKER both of which require a hefty PC to play.

    I would recommend a Radio Shack SPL meter if you don't have one for your home theater.

    I agree with Shane, get a spl meter if you don't already have one. If you do have one... put the 50 towards your fp fund. Or put it towards getting a ceiling mount or a long run of hdmi, something like that.

    Larry, I know you typed it right, but, at first it read "Saurav beat me with it"

    I know you were a close group at HTT but damn!

    Larry's too old for me. And I think I'm too old for Larry too.
