    Can't say I really go for the "Finer things in life" - my motto is *normally* "Go cheap or go home".
    Obviously I don't go full-retard on pricing, but I don't see the point in buying a pen for £1 when I can get one for 50p (for instance).

    I am a fan of our local brewery though. Real ales win.

    Watercooling + Lights + SLI 480's + Modded Side Panel = awesome tech porn

    And also my Synology DS211j NAS box - one of the best things I've ever bought.

    I would LOVE some quality headphones, but I only tend to use in ears.

    Can anyone recommend some leather / wooden desk / letter tidy units? Aspinals are ok but I am sure that I have seen better!

    Ooh, glad to see this thread back!

    Long, I've no idea on brand but just shop around for antique ones is all that I can suggest. My grandad has a brilliant old writing desk and I'm taking nicely to it. :)

    I have had a look on eBay and there are some nice bits on there.

    I NEED MONEY!

    I quite like this for a start:

    A GTX670. It's very nice. That and perhaps a big block V8.

    Some of the finer things I enjoy in my life:

    Material:

    - My fountain pen and good quality writing paper
    - A well configured, optimised desktop PC
    - My keyboard
    - Good scotch or any good quality spirit really
    - Good wine of all colours and styles
    - Books. I love books of all kinds.

    Imaterial:

    - Southern hemisphere sunsets.... I miss them :(

    - My health.

    - My family. I'm lucky I still have both sets of grand parents, I get on great with my mum and my dad, my step mum and sisters are cool... Compared to many in this department i consider myself blessed.

    - My friends. I don't have many but the ones I do have are worth their weight in gold.

    - My pets. I won't lie I prefer my cats to dogs but I wouldn't give them up for anything

    - Beautiful places in the world. I'm lucky enought o have seen a fair few. Sitting on the west coast of Australia with good food, wine and company thinking there was nowhere I would rather be was one of the best times of my life.

    Laughter - There isn't enough laughter in the world.

    New socks
    Open fires

    And most importantly, new hardware!
