    Default 2012 Official "What you got for Christmas" thread

    Yup, had to be done!

    This is a kind of follow-on from the "Wishlist" thread: http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?128441

    I've already got all my stuff early this year, never done that before but it turned out well:
    6-burner BBQ is a combined present for my wife and I, from ourselves
    A 5.1 channel Sherwood speaker system (Wasn't the cheapest so she's saying that's going to be my birthday gift for January too)
    Nexus 4! (Gift from me to me!)

    Anybody else had anything arrive early? We'll keep this up well past Christmas day so as you unwrap everything on the morning you can post here and let the world know what you got!

    Tech or non-tech, doesn't matter, let us know.
    I mostly do Bitcoin & DigiByte things these days, feel free to say hi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/dgb_chilling

    My parents had to buy me a new radiator for my car, and I can't use it anyway, the gasket or the head has blown too

    I used to have a full size one, this is 1/10 radio control, sacrifices we make!

    Now all I need is the rest of the bits to make it go!
