While I didn't get any of the mentioned gadgets and products, it certainly was my top list of stuff I would have been glad to receive. I suppose it would take an equally possessed data friend to have thought to give me any of the cool things.

Well, there next year, and hopefully some more data centric stuff I can play with if any of my friends are reading this.

@Broadway I'll never get ahead! I'm not in the market for a personal assistant but I would love to have one. :)

@tinym, your only hope is to get yourself a real live personal assistance. I think that is the only way to stay organized in a busy world! Technology be damned!!

Beth's photo-essay on gift-giving was the closest thread I could find to capturing some of the spirit of the holiday, so I just would like to wish everyone on A2 a Merry Christmas, Happy Winter Solstice, Happy Holidays, and Best Wishes for the New Year.

I will probably reapeat that last wish somewhere around Jan. 1st, but I'm including it here anyway, just in case...

Lyndon

@tinym, I wish you the best of luck with the whiteboard. I have tried that system and alas always end up back at the sticky notes!

@Broadway  I can related, method of choice is the 3*5 card, and not much is more satisfying than the feel of the pen driving into the cardboard like paper to cross off another task ( or bill ) , the ol' whiteboard just wouldn't do it for me either.

@Broadway I must have a terrible way of keeping notes. I rarely throw them out with everything listed marked complete. I think a whiteboard would force me to organize these lists a bit better so all tasks associated with a specific project live together rather than span across three sheets containing varied unrelated notes.

I like the idea of a recumbent bike desk but only for about 10 minutes. Having the ability to keep blood moving in my legs while sitting & working sounds excellent but it's a novel idea really... I would rather have an adjustable desk so I can stand or sit throughout the day with minimal adjustments. I really detest sitting for so many hours on end without moving.
