The List 2008

Ok, so its that time of year again. Christmas is coming up, and they say it’s better to give than receive. If you feel so inclined, you can get your favorite WordPress plug-in author (and second favorite Weblogs.us administrator) anything from the following list:

  • 2x2GiB (4GiB total) kit of DDR2 667 memory for laptops, something like this 4 GiB G.SKILL would be fine (the CAS 4 latency kit would be better, come January I’ll be running Linux with KDE 4.2 so it can handle 4GiB just fine).
  • A nice backpack that is meant for caring a laptop or nice laptop carrying case for up to 15″ laptops (I don’t plan on getting anything much bigger than the 14″ laptop I have right now). I’d like to be able to tote around my laptop with the secondary power brick, my Logitech Bluetooth notebook mouse, and my creative labs X-Fi laptop audio card.
  • CoD4 and/or CoD: World at War for PC, never bothered to get CoD4 last year. (Yes, my computer should be able to run both of these, it runs Crysis so they should not be a problem.)

Everything else that could be on the list would get into the $100+ range, so I left them off the list. They are computer parts for a Core i7 system which I will be building this spring (I plan on getting a mid range graphics card (or just scrape by with my brother’s old Radeon x800) and then upgrade next winter when Intel enters the high-end, discrete graphics fray).
