    Being we are now in November & also that Xmas & my birthday is coming up I thought I'd start a post to get some Ideas for Xmas & birthday gear for me and ! I figure some of you might have a similar situation or a constructive thought /opinion ? to add !! Please remember to keep it it clean ( this is a family show after all ) & stick to things that are anatomically possible ( LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Seriously though I've never been this undecided on my presents this late in the year !!! before ? I had a few thoughts Like adding a 1TB chunk of hard drive space to my desktop rig ? or upgrading My Nascar NCL-3006 Laptop 's memory from 512MB. to 1 or 2MB ? or maybe get one of those Samsung 203B sata Burners and a Sata /usb enclosure to make another external drive ( my old emachines ain't setup for sata !!! I've had a few other Ideas but nothing has really gelled inside the pumpkin head yet LOL! - I had to replace My Motherboard & PSU this year so that upgrade would be redundant for now & If I did that then I have to get faster memory and other parts and before you know it I could've just bought a new computer outright !!! What are you Guys & Gals contemplating for this year ? let's hear ya's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1.) Build a cheap, low wattage, small form factor, HTPC/media PC. (when I mean cheap... I mean CHEAP.)

    2.) Large capacity external HDD (1TB or larger) for music and tv shows.

    3.) Xbox 360

    I doubt I'll have the money for any of the three though. :\

    22" Samsung for $199.99

    Circuit City/Compusa: 22" Acer for $169.99

    Myself: Not really anything that I need during the sales. I'll shoot my wad for at least a 28", 8+HP snowblower.Gotta Prepare for the weather, LOL.

    I'll still hit a few of those stores for some blank dvds,an 8" digital picture frame from wallyworld for my dad/Guitar Hero II for the kids,and stock up on some $10 kmart el cheapo dvd players.

    Black friday today, what a mad house. I went to a larger town this time and should have stuck with the smaller ones, LOL.

    I got at wallyworld at 5:05 am. I had to park in BF egypt. I couldn't even get close to the good electonics sales like dad's 8" digital picture frame for $50. I couldn't even find any associates to tell me where everything was.There was 1 girl who kept ramming her cart into my a**. I walked out pretty pissed!!!

    Then waited a half hour (30 degrees f) for kmart to open up and got 3 of their $10 coby dvd players.Good deal except it totalled $75 and gotta send off $45 worth of rebates.

    Then I hit Office Depot for the blank dvds-100 pk for $18
    No trouble getting in,but a half hour to get checked out.

    These are pretty decent discs for 18 cents each.

    Then to Meijer,which wasn't too bad.Huge accident in front of it.Had a fire engine and 2 ambulances at the scene.

    Then off to Menards,which is behind Meijer. What a Joke. Had to be 40 cars parked in the grass. I walked in and there had to be 50+ customers waiting at each of the very few checkouts.They all had carts full of stuff and lots of $3 snow shovels. I just wanted 1 shovel and an $8 cd binder, LOL.

    Then I decided to hit a smaller wallywold on my way home. Very few people there at 8:30 am. I got lucky and found 1 digital picture frame, a 2 gb SD card for $13,and all of their toys/games that were advertised. Spent $175 there, UGGH!

    A lesson I learned last year: Sometimes stores limit the amount of items that can be purchased,especially with electronics. When they do try to chechout with too many of 1 item,they leave the extras at the cash registers.These are then taken to customer service. I've gotten some of the hot sales Items this way when going into the stores after 8 am.
