My favorite so far. WD TV Live. Older product but does what I need it to do. PS3 is good for streaming but some of my backups won't play through it. Nice to have a tiny box that does it all.

Waiting for the kids to get up to open a bulk of the presents though. We do one present a day for a week to entertain them and build the excitement. Then Christmas morning we open Santa's presents plus all the rest from family.

My wife took me back to childhood days with a woodcraft model Velociraptor to build, a Spring-loaded automated cart which I have to build which was based on one of Da Vinci's original designs, and a potato clock :D We had set a small money limit since this year we were tight, so some good fun there for the price! Also got an Avocado tree, some tools for the ol' toolkit and a venus fly trap, as well as assorted stocking-stuffers.

I got.....

Having desecrated my stocking, I found in it from Father Christmas (really me)

Two tangerines
£6:30p (about $12:60c in US terms)
A paddleball bat and ball
A mini chess set
A mouth organ
Some fake penalty tickets to put on random cars at stupid'o'clock in the morning when noone is awake to see me do it
A laser pen
A bookmark
A "T" seal and sealing wax
Two packs of Vienesse truffles
Three packs of chocolate coins
A compass
Three mini chocolate logs with marzipan robins
Three chocolate puddings
A small slab of chocolate.

From my family under the tree I got...

I got...

A red gala silk shirt that makes me look like Father Christmas.
Big black boots that also look like Father Christmas's.
A big back Father Christmas like belt embossed with red stars.
A dark blue denim shirt.
A map where you hang it on the wall and scrape off a gold foil covering of the countries that you have been to.
A regifted book to write in.
A 2012 diary.
A 2012 Taylor Swift calendar (not as good as the 2011 one but it has some good pics of her.)
A book called "Buried Alive" about the history of live burial.
A book called "Many Skies" about how things would be with different star systems.
A book called "Christmas-a candid history" about Christmas traditions
And my father asked me and my two brothers to shut their eyes. They did and I pulled my Father Christmas hat over my eyes to serve as a blindfold. When we could open our eyes and I could pull up my hat, we were each holding-a brand new blue plastic sledge. So if it snows in 2013 that will come in very handy.
A £15 I-tunes card
A book called "A horrid history of Christmas"
A £25 I-tunes card
And a book by Condalezza Rice.

Kindle Fire
Mr. Coffee K cup coffee maker
Some nice clothes
Lemon and black pepper dark chocolate bar
Dual drive ratchet set

Wife got two stadium horse jumps I made. Pics were posted to my Facebook.
Bought her shoes, some nice clothes, a bit of jewelry, and the barn owners who take care of our horses had all of their feet trimmed Christmas Eve. That was pretty awesome and unexpected.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.
