I really got nothing but every year we go to the movie with a dresser.
Today is the movie I am Legend.

We only get presents on birthdays and Sinterklaas (St. Nicolas, a sort of christmas but a little bit different).

"Holiday" gifts, rofl

I got a gaming chair, rocking thing with speakers etc built into it. Totally unexpected, so I was chuffed. Some other bits too, and a few quid. Past wanting big fancy presents, I wouldn't be upset if I didn't get anything, if I want something nowadays, I go and buy it tbh.

Where do you want to go today?

Favourite OS
All Microsoft operating systems!
I got:
a Panasonic/Sr. Partner PC/XT (one of those so-called "Portables" with two 5.25 inch Floppy Disk drives and a green monochrome display. I learned that it was a PC by inserting an MS-DOS Setup floppy disk that was bootable into Drive A: and the system was able to boot from it. I also got a 286 PC of the same form factor from some company called "BSi" (when you power it on it also says "Komputerwerk"), but unfortunately it has a battery problem and could also have a problem with the floppy disk drive controller. I also got a Tandy laptop (from 1990) that also needs a new battery and two Leading Edge laptops (with 386SX Processors) which need new batterys but work great when you boot them using floppy disks. I also installed Sparta Beta 2 on one of them.

I also got three old Personal Computer magazines, a bank shaped like an IBM Compatible, and a DVD of the IBM "S. A. G. E." Computer.

Quite a few of my presents were from ThinkGeek, including some sweet geeky shirts "domo-kun, ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US, and ROFLCOPTER!", and a set of RC minicopters. They're fun to play with but hard to drive. :P

I also received some money, some DVDs, and Guitar Hero for the PS2. Tis fun to play. :)
