Christmas Wish List 2004

It is that time of year again: My family and I exchange wish lists, to aid in our gift searches. I've attached my list to this entry. Also, please see last year's list for reference.
  • Digital watch for use while running. It should have a stopwatch, of course. It should also be waterproof, for those situations when Elizabeth takes me swimming.
  • Network print server. It should have an Cat-5 (wired) ethernet connection, and connect to a printer via a parallel cable. We would use this to allow any computer on our LAN to print stuff out. Something like this.
  • Long sleeve shirts (size large), for work. Non-ironing, please.
  • Blue jeans, size 34x32.
  • Belt, black or brown.
  • Gift certificate to “Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf”, which operates a coffee shop near to our house.
  • Gift certificate to AMC movie theaters, which operates a theater near our house.
  • Retractable Ethernet network cable, Cat-5 (for a laptop). Something like this.
    • Books
    • Books from the Sharpe Series by Cornwall. This is a series of books, of which I have none.
    • "The Guns of the South" by Harry Turtledove
    • "Orphanage" by Robert Buettner
    • "Neuromancer" by William Gibson
  • “Blokus”, a board game that looks interesting.
  • DVD: Lord of the Rings – Two Towers and Return of the King. Widescreen version, please.
