Motorized Tie rack?
With all of the vinyl records D has, this might be more useful ... iConvert™ USB Turntable or this Ripping Turntable, which burns them directly to CD. All from Brookstone.
My dad gave me a bunch of tapes of very old home movies I am trying to convert into movies. I think this Video Converter might be just the ticket. Just some ideas. ;)
Gosh, I hate it when I got back something and the links are broken, I have fixed these now ;0000 arrgghh.
