The Christmas Loot Thread

Post your hauls here!

---

I was told by my worse half to buy my own present, because she cannot remember all of the tools I asked for.

F YEAH CHRISTMAS!

Tools... so many tools!

Hakko FX-888 40W adjustable-temp soldering station
Maxtech 32-bit (not the digital type!) micro screwdriver set
Olympia Tools smartphone repair kit
Sinometer 1000W/20A replacement test leads
Micro USB Jig for Samsung Galaxy smartphones (easy download mode woo!)

Going to buy a boatload of guitar picks of various thicknesses (for opening cases and removing LCDs, separating glued bits and pieces) and some tweezers as well.

I'm too lazy to bother with a heat gun... a hairdryer works fine for melting glue on broke phones, and it can't get hot enough to damage anything... a lighter works for activating heat-shrink tubing.

Waiting to hear back on a Craigslist ad for a brand-new (back-stocked or somesuch thing, since they're discontinued now) LG DM-441B bench-style true-RMS multimeter.

I will be able to do so much SCIENCE with all of this!


Also, non-tool things that were obtained:

JVC HA-S400B collapsible headphones (more comfy than extended wear of earphones, for use while studying)

A crapload of games on Steam o_o

---

As for what my present to my partner, well, she's still trying to decide what she wants. It's probably going to be either a phone that doesn't have a huge piece of dust under the screen or a metric buttload of music.

Got lots of Manchester United junk from my brother which was devine.

Received the last ever edition of the Dandy (an old uk comicbook) bit of history oned now (pic below)

New watch (expensiveeeee yey)

new t-shirts (one that says meh. on the front and a space invaders top)

New flufy socks....fluffy socks rule the world.

Th best thing I got out of the bunch consists of two things one is a build your own sunny go from one piece (pic below) and a all paid trip to london with my stunning girlfriend in janurary. whoop whoop.

450 pounds in cash

That's it really. I find it easier for myself and my mother if I buy all the items since it will be things such as manga, anime etc which my mother isn't familiar about I can say though it was upsetting having no presents to open however XD

I also got a 20 pound voucher for Waterstones and an electric beard trimmer

Far Cry 3 (ps3)
Milwaukee Brewers Braun Sports jersey
$300 cash

All in all a very good Christmas. Tight times, but everyone found some money to gift to each other which is always great. A nice thing about time passing is being able to make others smile thanks to your gifts.

The haul:
Guild Wars 2 (PC)
Assassin's Creed III: Liberation (Vita)
'The Summer Tree' by: Guy Gavriel Kay
PSN Gift Card
Razer Lycosa Keyboard

Let's see.. The one thing about being a grown-up is you get less toys..

Myself
-Angry Birds T-Shirt
-Club Monaco Sweater
-James Bond Movies in DVD (Goldeneye, Goldfinger, Octopussy, Casino Royale, The World is Not Enough)
-P90X with dumbbells and pull-up bar

I'd add that my fiancé had quite the haul this Christmas.. Which broke the bank on my part..

Not having to spend Christmas with parents + grandparents. Best gift ever =P

Don't feel like spending money just because it's Christmas so I didn't buy myself anything either.

Edit: I just got charged for this, so I guess this counts:

From others to me:
$100 bucks
Extreme 240gb SSD for my new laptop

From myself to me:
15" Lenovo Ideapad Y580

Didn't get as much as I usually do every Christmas but I did get what I want (that's all that matters) and + I usually just buy whatever I need/want.

Actual presents? One ¥1,000,000 check.

Expected presents? Probably my beloved when I get home.

I got new RAM for my computer and a 1TB external hard drive, so far.

And then the power went out for several hours, ensuring I could make use of neither.
