Many of those things would be pretty useful David. Nice answer. Get yourself some new lights though, modern ones don't use that serial format, and LED types don't use much current. Think I've got 2 years max before bifocals now - starting to move stuff away from my face to read it.
Michael - oh, yes, Sonos - went to the store thinking to get 2 Play 1s after years of no stereo (young children and stuff, my cabinet speakers were liable to squash small children as they stood on spikes). Ended up getting the Play 5 - that is one totally fantastic gadget. It's just a case now of trying to hold out as long as possible before adding a bit more to my collection. You surely won't regret it.
Otherwise not bothered about tablets etc my phone is adequate for most stuff otherwise will use the PC.
