What did you get for Christmas?

Recommended Posts

Just like the title said- what gifts did you get this year?I got a Logitech keyboard and mouse:http://gearmedia.ign.com/gear/image/logite..._face_small.jpg http://y2k.centre.net.au/prod/img/LOG0148.jpgVery cool optical mouse, and the keyboard is the best I have ever used, with buttons to launch webpages, programs, control the volume, mute, play/stop/forward/back/pause, and a scroller on the left side with a back button, which makes webbrowsing much easier.I also got the book "Kings of Convergence" about the media moguls here in Canada (The Aspers and CanWest, BellGlobal, Shaw, BCE...). Great topic, since I studied media convergence and it's impact on Canadian society last semester! (Pretty dry reading, though, for the uninitiated)http://images.chapters.indigo.ca/covers/bo...385658362_b.jpgAnd, of course, the old standby...http://miscminutiae.com/images/canadian_money.jpg

Well, I received a very nice gift from my wife. She went out on a limb and picked this out all by herself. I've never been a collector of any type of memorabilia, but this is pretty cool. I don't think that she fully realizes that she just may have created a "collecting monster" by giving me this.It's made from mahogany wood, hand painted, lacquered, and then signed by Chuck Yeager. It comes with full documentation including a certificate of authenticity signed again by Yeager, and a photo of him signing the piece. Of course the sentimental value will always outweigh the monetary value, but it's nice to know that she got what she paid for.For many reasons, it is the nicest X-mas gift that I've ever received.My apologies for the image quality, but it has been compressed twice(due of course to my laziness...LOL) to fit the image guidlines.Tim13http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3e0b9640648f5756.jpg

Just Flight's new VFR Photographic Scenery.A briliant product and, IMHO, the future direction of FS graphics. It's a little odd flying without all the 3d clutter, though! But this is only the mk1 version - I'd guess it won't be long until someone starts putting the correct 3d buildings into the correct place on the vfr map.Happy New Year
