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.

You'll love this one.
During my student days I bought one of those wall-mounted singing fish that b3ta is so enamoured of. It was only a fiver. I went at it with a screwdriver and wired the doorbell to the "Sing!" button and hung it up on the back of the front door. Sometimes the Jehova's Witnesses would bring a child along for effect, and the little buggers absolutely loved it. So much so that sometimes they even neglected to bring up the subject of my immortal soul at all. Result!
