    Genuine apologies for those suffering with the current economic climate. However, I've just been given a decent bonus at work. Most of which has to go on sensible things, but I get to buy myself one treat. Let's say a budget of around 500.

    There's nothing I need, there's nothing I can think of of that I particularly want. Link me to some cool stuff I didn't even know I wanted in my life!

    Thank you (and sorry if I sound like an arsehole).

    Like your style. I need some tech for when I'm all coked and hookered out though....It will happen eventually, I think.

    How about something you can use to make other stuff? A wacom. A camcorder. A camera. Something you can use to create things for a long time to come, no matter how coked up and infected you may be.

    In todays money I think that probably works out at about 500 sweets.

    I'd just go with the coke and hookers. Fun for all the family.

    Yeah fuck it. I just spent a fat wedge if cash too on a Fujifilm X10

    Ok it might produce the odd orb like anomaly in some situations due to a design flaw (I knew this before buying it) but the rest of the images it creates jump out the screen and give you a hand job. Usable ISO 1600 on a compact with incredibly high dynamic range thanks to a cock-hardening double sensor design? Fuck me yes it can and does.

    /is broke now

    have I convinced you?

    Cheapest thing around by miles is money. Use you cash to leverage a huge loan and go nuts.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.
