Toy Box: Welcome to the geek mother lode

I should have been writing about this site before Father's Day but you might want to spread the word for next year. It holds the key to ending the whole 'Buy your dad some socks and a power tool' sham.

Think Geek has everything for the nerd in your life, from hardware like the Pockey 2.0 40GB portable hard drive that uses USB 2.0 and transfers data at 480Mbit/s, to software, to the T-shirt that says "There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't", to the outright weird, like caffeinated soap, or the possibly useful, like the personal password manager which clips on to your key-ring.

Half the stuff isn't available for delivery outside the US, because presumably you'll want to pay in greasy South Pacific drachma or something, so why not email them and complain. I have. Repeatedly.

I want a coffee mug with WTF on the side, a laser pointer, a hard drive that fits on my key-ring, one of those gamer mice that has a much finer resolution (sadly now out of stock) and just about any of the T-shirts. The demotivational posters are brilliant and the baby clothing is, well, to die for.

It might be a tad late for Father's Day, but my birthday is coming up (in two months -- Ed).
