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.

Guatemalans like to do strange hacks.
When I was at the big market in Guatemala I noticed something that made me grin.

There was a building that had apparently been there for a long time. At some point there were telephone lines strung, and they didn't take adequate care when they installed them so one of the lines would slap against the building in the wind.

Their answer? They pushed it out away from the building with a broom and nailed the broom in place. Look for yourself.
