    I'm a gadget addict, and I'm deployed. I'm looking to spend/waste $100 on a gadget. What gadget would you buy if you had $100 to spend? :coolugh:

    Post it on Craigslist: "WTS US$100; will consider all reasonable offers."

    That's a good idea. but it's not a gadget :squint:

    I have one. I rarely use it here, though. Freekin' moondust gets into everything.

    :rofl:


    I settled on a USB Altoids charger kit:

    When I'm not looking for explosive devices in Baghdad, one of my hobbies is electronic kits. The parts for this one cost <$30, but since I don't have any of my own stuff (soldering iron, etc) the necessary tools bumped it up to almost $100. I'll use the them for building more kits later, so it's like an investment. And the charger is something that I'll actually use. Really. :hsugh:

    the parts are starting to arrive. :coold:

    It'll probably be a couple of weeks before I'm able to get around to making it, though. :hs:
