Anyone looking at getting anything special?

Don't know what i'll ge bettnig, socks and pants is probably a good bet. Think I may get something robot related but unsure yet.

Hopefully some new boots, the amount of snow here is scary. 29" of snow during the weekend.

Not actually for Christmas but before the VAT goes up on Jan 1st I am looking at lathes and handheld oscilloscopes. I have been saving up but due to indicisiveness I can't quite make up my mind what to get.

I might get some more robot bits (thinking about a new fleaweight, among other things) and a new digital camera would be good, got my eye on a few.

The inner child in me wants a sledge as well :P

I'm looking for an Archos 101 tablet, but it's completely sold out here in NL and Germany.
Best regards,

Just wanna say that, TheAntTrap, Fire Box and Flea Flip are retired. However, I am still working on Antulocetus and Antupus. And making those better than the previous ones. However, the retired won't be left in the dust, they'll still show up in next competition and just be around the random matches.

P.S Sorry, if it don't have anything to do with Christmas. :(

What I want for christmas is either a welder or a home of my own :P I've been trying to get on the property ladder recently but on ?946 take home a month and ?13.5k in savings its rather hard going, even for a 1 bedroom place.

Oh, and good to hear your still building the new ants, what was wrong with them before the AWS?
