This is a question DIY Techno-hacks

Old hard drive platters make wonderfully good drinks coasters - they look dead smart and expensive and you've stopped people reading your old data into the bargain.

Have you taped all your remotes together, peep-show-style? Have you wired your doorbell to the toilet? What enterprising DIY have you done with technology?

Extra points for using sellotape rather than solder.

A friend of mine had a remote control watch
that, for some reason, he could use to control TVs and radios. He used to use it in school to turn the volume up frighteningly loud or right down on the documentary while the teacher had it paused to pass out notes or whatever.

I don't think they ever caught on...

Did anyone else have one of these watches?

(The most sabotage I ever did was altering an alarm clock so it sounded like my school bell, then setting it off five minutes before lunch so we all got out early. The teacher then set their clock five minutes fast for the rest of the year.)

But this was some time back. No idea if it is still around.

Meee!
I had one, in fact I've still got it lying round somewhere - the strap broke but the remote still works on it.

"As always Casio represent great value for money and will never look out of date"...
