12-Days of Technology Before Christmas

In December of 1995, Bill Hancock, Ph.D. from Grand Prairie, TX wrote Request for Comment: 1882. This technology rendition of the 12-Days of Christmas always makes me smile during the hectic and bussel of the holiday season.

This is my memento of a Geek Christmas wish to all of my friends and students. Please enjoy the 12-Days of Technology Before Christmas Request for Comment.

Geek Xmas

Geek Moment Dec 12, 2011:
As I shop for my geek friends for the holidays, I run across several versions of Department of Desktop Warfare (DDW) USB Nerf Rocket Launchers. I am so excited as the Xmas visions in my head turns to see my friends expecting a red Swingline stapler only to open a USB controlled Nerf Missile Launcher. I smile as I see the Nerf darts arch through the air over Cubeville. Oh which one to choose...

ThinkGeek USB Laser Guided Missile Launcher

Brookstone USB Desktop Missile Launcher

I start mentally counting and then adding how many of my friends will absolutely need this - especially at UAT during Nerf Wars! Then I snap out of my office daydream to realize ... I really do not have a budget with that many zeros. So this now goes up as a poll.
