Four Gift Ideas


Quite simply the ultimate gift to give your Father
this year.  And the one I got for my Father is the
"Swingline Red Stapler".  You can get them at the
local office depot for about $20.00.  Being a
swingline it doesn't bind like the other staplers.


DVDs: Office Space the movie on DVD is under $25.00. 
It has become a cult classic.  Or Swordfish/Antitrust
(they should do a two pack) to be ironic.


All in one game systems.  There are a couple of these
out there.  





All are about $25.00 and are retro cool.  Just plug
into your TV and away you go.  The intellvision one is
rather weak though as it has reimplementations of the
games instead of the actual emulated games.


A decent optical mouse.  Everybody should be optical
by now.  Microsoft does make a couple of decent blue
optical mice that work really well.
