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.

...are dim at the best of times, truly dim!!

Why should they enjoy the benefits of a field for exercise while you're missing that re-run of "2 and a half men" on Paramount?

You need Scalextric my friend, oh yes!

It has to be the old, 80's stuff, the new stuff needs a closed circuit. Use all your straight sections and run them across the lounge floor for as great a distance as possible.

Place car on track, pull trigger, accelerate your Mighty Metro to the other side of the lounge at pace, hopefully with a Jack Russell in hot pursuit.

With any luck the dog will bring back the car allowing the game to start again.

Obviously be aware of dog drool on contacts issues, that never results in a good outcome, just a yelping dog.

Other options include running the track to the patio doors and firing the car out into the rear garden. This may have an adverse effect on the lifespan of the car. The dog'll love it though.
