  • When I’m working at the computer I use my Nerf gun as a wife repellant. Well I did until she got her own.

    • get the Nerf belt fed machine gun & replace the batteries with an RC battery back, that thing will rock “n” roll, keeps my missus out off the computer room… 🙂

  • Has to be my phone. It revolutionised the way I live. Appointments, meetings, tasks and contacts are all synched through gmail/calendar from my laptop.

    Otherwise… Duct tape. I love duct tape *evil laugh*

  • My favourite tool, which seems to have lost popularity these days, is a proofreader.

  • Fridge whiteboards. One as a calendar, one for budgeting & meal planning
