christmas gift inspiration for a tekkie-man

hi folks, wondering what to buy a 23-year old male Linux-loving GTA-addicted computer science phd student... it's tricky, as I'm not an expert in such things, and atm I can't think of anything he hasn't already got/can't build for himself...!

any suggestions (no matter how random) would be much appreciated!

I like this site, loads of stuff to keep you busy, lol.

click here.

I very often browse to see what my wife could, (notice I said could) buy me.

Hope it gives you a few ideas.

Presumably he's got a PSP? If not, how about that plus GTA - Liberty City Stories?

Cheers for the heads-up on Firebox :) what a great site; I particularly love the sound of this: click here
only that'd be more enthralling for me, I fear... mustn't_be_selfish :D

heh, no he doesn't! and I've actually just entered a prize draw to win a PSP here: click here

In the event I don't win, however, it might just be the ideal thing, along with Liberty Stories...though he has built his own GTA server, which takes up the vast majority of his attention >_<

Actually, I mistyped - I actually meant Vice City stories, but both are good for the PSP.

Reading the first intro paragraph, seems to say it all. How about this link, might be something of interest click here :O)
