    • ... what next :)

    Printable socks - or even repair holes in old printed socks!

    Or body armour - SCA, or army, or motorbike, or skidoo!

    For Ep250 go out of the studio, visit old hosts and the 'behind the scenes' guys and @golnaz89 of course!

    Rick, the next time you are about too break something, can I be there?  I did receive the e-mail from the microsoft / Yahoo lotto.  I went to my boss and said "I quit" lol  Then I told him that I won the lottery "Microsoft / Yahoo" to turn around and say "April FOOLS!"  Can you please tell people about the "Windows tech support call".  This is where some person with a heavy Indian accent call and states they are with Windows tech support when they are a real scam!

    Sports stuff makes the most sense to me too but I think it would have to be small. Custom cap or custom shoe laces?
