I was in JB HiFi the other night with MrsDarthKermit. I thought I'd be nice and show her what I'd like to get her for Christmas.

 

For some reason, she didn't appreciate my thoughtfulness and nearly clocked me with the matching item that goes with this product.

 

Cool accessory 

 

 

 

[woohoo, my 3,000th post on GZ]

 You're a brave man! Did @MrsDarthKermit make you walk home?





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

While showing this post to my wife just now, she sternly suggested I shouldn't laugh. She reminded me that I gave her an ironing board for Christmas one year, and followed that up with an iron for he birthday the following month. Ahh yes, I remember now. That was quite a number of years ago though, and I wouldn't be so careless as to make this mistake again!

I think the iRon is just the HID, as @DarthKermit discovered.  This is the actual processor.

I buy my wife knives




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Maybe she might like a cordless drill or water blaster, or a video card upgrade?

 I buy my wife either Batman, Pearl Jam, Iron Maiden or Like A Storm stuff and shes happy.

 

Buy her anything practical and it would be inserted into places.
