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.

Pimp my pump
My other half almost killed me the night I knocked the breast pump off the shelf and it stopped working. The prospect of having to feed small person personally all night was too much at a very stressful time in our lives. So I took it apart to see what had gone wrong.

Simples... the plastic clips holding the pump together had snapped. Crap design anyway as half the effort of the pump was lost as the clips moved about. So I inserted a bit of wood from the garden to jam the pump housing in place. Lo! the pump not only worked, but was way, way, way more efficient.

And way, way, way more painful, apparently. You can't win.
