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.

only wish that were true.

Most of this stuff is bodged together out of bits and bobs - and a lot of it I had to brain-drain the electronic engineer at work for.

A year ago, I didn't even know what a resister did (although to be fair, I could guess from the name).

I even looked at electronics evening classes recently so I didn't have to make this stuff by trial and error and would have half a chance before I set out, but all I could find were "Soft furnishings" and "Falconry".

No wonder the country us fcked up!
