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.

Mixing it up...
One that perhaps only the ladies will understand but which was a little bit of creative genius if I say so myself - and I do.

Gummy thick nail polish? Adding a bit of nail polish remover will thin it down but takes much shaking and rolling the bottle around to get it properly mixed in.
What you really need is something to spin that bottle superfast.
Sadly my home is unequiped with any centrifuge type equipment and the hubby feels it would be better value to just buy more nail polish.

But I do have a salad spinner
(like this, for the salad dodgers out there: www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_-ptDgxLIo its a genuis invention all by itself).

Pop in the bottle, give it a quick few rotations and hey presto: lovely fluid nail polish.

It doesn't clog up as quickly if you put a ball bearing in (it helps stir the stuff around when you shake it)
Assuming you are one of the 0.04% of people who owns both nail varnish and ball bearings
