I'm very proud to have discovered a way to satisfy my wife's need for shopping. Ebay works like a charm... and the best part about it is that she hasn't spent anything yet :)
Now that we're talking about ebay, I'll drop a blatent plug for something I'm selling there.
Here is a nifty home made serial remote control receiver. It used to be great fun before my kid learned how to walk and flushed the remote control down the toilet. Anyway, there is no reserve and it's about to go pretty cheap (approx $2.25).
