Just bought some toys online. Geek toys, though, and not even so much "toys" as "the makings of toys" (ie, electronics parts). I head back to Seattle next Friday for two weeks, so I had them shipped there. That's where the soldering iron and breadboard is, anyway.
I'm tempted to bring some breadboarding kit with me back down here when I return after Christmas. Writing software is fun and making programs that work well is great. But I really would like to build something in the real world. Building electronic hardware is becoming a forgotten art. The whole of Fry's may be bustling with geeks and wannabe geeks looking at CD-RW drives and such, but their etch-your-own circuit board aisle is quiet.
