Bought a new hat? That's cool too.

I've been using an old Nokia 6150 until recently, had to abandon it because of concerns about it not being shielded from radiation (and also the screen was becoming damaged from long use). I find it to have been more efficient in many ways than the more modern cell phone I use now. The new one has lots of features I have no need for, clumsy controls and is not entirely tweakable (e.g. I can't turn off the option to auto-save sent text messages).

I also have a Siemens portable audio tape player I've been using mostly for the built-in radio lately.

Hmm, can't think of much at the moment.
I still prefer to use a manual tin opener :roflmao:

I've got this film camera:

Which is quite nice. I wanted to give SLR a go but can't afford a digital. I got this free from Freegle (like Freecycle) and realised how much I like the look of film photos again. You forget, in this digital age, how many times you retake a photo to get it just right. With film, it has to be right the first time!
Also, the downside is, I've got 5 films on the desk waiting to be processed, for about 5 months...
