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.

... seem to actually make all the things I would like to make, but somehow never actually get around to making.

I don't have a lot of time for much else, and when I start something I have a habit of not stopping 'till it's done otherwise I lose interest too quickly and it never gets finished (like my MAME cabinet mentioned in a much earlier post).

This sadly was started before I went on holiday, and now I have to find the motivation to pick it up again whilst all my mates are down the pub, or it will never get finished.

... Ah... I made a MAME cabinet... powered by an XBox... its rather fun but has spent the last few years resigned to the garage as its too big to get in the house.

I made
mine IN the garage and it was too big to get out. A proper Frank Spencer job that one was!

I was thinking of dedicating my old xbox to a 'cocktail cabinet' style one, one that might be a little more 'wife-friendly', but true to form, I've pretty much destroyed it by drilling the back out to add USB ports (for a keyboard) and nicking the HDD for another box (I have no idea what has happened to my original 8gb one, so I can't put it back).
