"Tis the season! Linux is the gift that keeps on giving; here is a roundup of my suggestions for treating yourself, your loved ones, or other people with Linux and geeky goodness.

"Random Geek Toys

"Who needs another salad shooter, Shake Weight, miracle mop, or talking toilet paper? The best geek toys are fun and useful.

"Edmund Scientifics is the grandparent of the best geek toys. Telescopes, microscope, science fair kits, optics of all kinds, lasers, crystals and prisms, chemistry sets, robotics, and much much more. Edmund Scientifics is more important than ever since Radio Shack became mainly a cell phone and big-screen TV pusher.

"Think Geek is more computer-nerd oriented, with an abundance of gags and pranks, and a nice selection of useful things like a synthesizer shirt, USB monitor, games, music makers, and lots more.

"Science Toys is a Web site chock full of cool things you can build at home with common materials, with your kids or without, such as a Magnetic Ring Launcher, homemade batteries, a little steam boat, a railgun, extracting DNA in your kitchen, and many more fun projects."
