What should I request from Father Christmas?

My daughter is steadfastly refusing to buy a 'conventional' present for a dad - tie, socks etc. She thinks that as I spend so much time on my 'puter that she ought to buy me something PC-related.

But what?

I've got all the usual gubbins including TFT monitor, scanner, printer, wireless router, ZIP drive, USB external hard drive, USB TV stick, flash drive, cigar lighter (yes, really click here ) digital camera and a brand new wireless mouse. I have Windows XP and Office 2003. I do not play games except when extremely bored.

Any suggestions?

I've asked for an extra hard drive for my laptop, but you already have one of those!

How about an inflatable Dalek?? click here

How about a nice comfy executive chair, that massages etc while you surf!

Last Christmas i bought a Mp3 player for my Wife. She didn't think she would have any use for such a thing. She had got her Cd's and her CD player...


Well.. She can now rip and load up her favourite tracks. She is 'Over the Moon'.

Now i think i want one... ;-)

Sorry folks I should have provided more information about my 'operating system':

Nellie2 - its only conceivable use would be zapping spyware huntresses.

josie mayhem - got one - not with massage facility but extremely comfortable. I have been known to nod off...

Kev.Ifty - I'm not really musically inclined except for some rather obscure and long defunct 70s bands. Not into iPods et al.

So you see the problem is to find an interesting present for a rather boring person.

"How's about"(in the words of an old DJ) a Dell pocket PC. Just another toy but can be useful.
