Kaoss Pad 3 (awesomeness)
Wooden alto recorder (finally)
Awesome little RC helicopter that shoots plastic darts!  (Super awesomeness)
256 mb RAM for my mpc  (not official upgrade, but it works perfectly)
Hakko 936 soldering station (so much better than my cheapo soldering iron)


256mb? Seems kinda little...

I think it's for a music thing rather than a PC.


Oh, OK. I listen to music, not make it... So I don't know TOO MUCH about it... Like I know mixers, EQs, that type of thing... Never touched a synth in my life.


1000 leds. Now to use them for next years decoration   ;)

Don't forget to use current limiting resistors with them.  ;)


forget the resistors, hook em up to ~48 volts and use them for new years  ;)

I got my brother something similar a few years back, the year after we got our Wii's and we were all like "OMG WIIS R AWESOME" I was going to buy him the stuff to make a wireless sensor, but at like 2.75 a IR led at Radio Shack I was like screw this and went looking elsewhere, found a site that sold them at a much more reasonable price, but there was a min order limit, so I ended up buying like 800 IR LEDs

Shortly thereafter we got bored with the Wii, they still haven't been used... lol

Also, thanks for the advice from before, sorry for derailing the thread a bit, the other gift I got was a cheapo soldering iron

I have pleasant experience with a cheap-o soldering iron

it was given to me as a "craft kit" which featured wood burning, hot knife and soldering iron, never used it as a soldering iron, but as a wood burner and more importantly a hot knife (depending on what tips you screwed to the soldering iron)  its still in my collection

also came with a crap set of helping hands that is my "other" pair on the bench today


couple years ago I bought myself a XYtronic 379 soldering station for 45 bucks on my birthday, its comparable to the HAKKO's we use at work at half the price, and I love it


 I got 'Electrics for dummies', which I wanted. I'll read it when I go away shortly.

 Oh, my grandma gave me a mini doughnut maker.

  I hope everyone had a good Christmas

my grandma gave me a mini doughnut maker

Now to make a robot that will go to the store and buy the stuff needed, dump it into the doughnut maker, and make a fully automated process ;)

I got a hunting cap, a gun case, and a beer making kit.  I think the universe is trying to tell me something. :P


256 mb of RAM on the board gives my mpc 128 mb, the maximum.  The mpc only reads one side of the RAM board, so you need to buy twice as much memory.  Akai also makes an official RAM upgrade, a custom board that only has the RAM chips on one side, but they charge $160!

It's for sample space, because 16 mb (default) is hardly anything, in uncompressed wav files.
