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.

I've forgotten the number of things I've kludged on my old car
like electrics with the foil from a KitKat, or connectors held in place by wooden clothes pegs.

I gave it all up when I tried to make a CarPC. I managed to blow several fuses in the car and decides not to mess about with things like that again. Two days later I had cooked my new* Athlon processor with accompanying fizzing and smoke. Technology and me don't mix; especially when it includes electricity.

Now plumbing. That's something I'm actually good at.

*for then.
