What was it? Whether it was a packet of chips, a video game, a CD, a magazine, a gun, a flower, a yacht or an island, post it here.

My most recent purchase was a CD - Dream Theater's "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence".

    Agreed. The orange palette they went for in 2.0 was an ugly eyesore.

  • Of note? This.

    WACOM Intuos4 tablet.

  • You bought lots of white space? With the sheer amount of white space shown against a tablet for reference?

  • I had to buy it before the government bought it up.

  • I bought...fried rice, the best of all rices. Someday I will divine the recipe for this amazing concoction and make it myself. And before anyone sends me links to recipe websites, I will say that this is a personal journey to rice nirvana. It isn't a path to a door, but a road vanishing into a horizon of fried rice.

    Obviously what you need to do is reverse-engineer the fried rice. You have access to a lab, don't you?

    WACOM Intuos4 tablet.

    My wife bought me one of those for Valentines day... she is a good wife... and she knows me well...

    Now.... what to do with my old Intuos3?
    I'm thinking I will start training my kids on it.. on their laptop.

    I do, but there's slightly too many e.coli in it to be fooling around with food. Right now, I'm thinking about infiltrating the kitchens at the restaurant I order it at. It's a risky proposition, because if they catch me, they'll throw me out and ban me from coming back ever again.

    Hmmm....thought is required.

    Hire an agent? Build a robot probe? Fill the building with knockout gas before sneaking in?

    I'm thinking something more within my area of expertise, namely making a clone of myself and sending it in to acquire the recipe. Needless to say, this will take year and years of tireless hard work, but I think the result will be worth it.
