So what did everyone pull in this holiday season?

Looks like I got

BenQ 20" WS Monitor

Mass Effect

Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring Complete Recordings

DISCLAIMER: Yes this is the obligatory "what did you get" thread, just roll with it, okay.

It may sound sappy, but my best gift was a call from someone I care about whom I couldn't be with at Christmas (no it wasn't from Rabbi).

I also got some money, a gift certificate and several books to read. Now I need to decide if I want to buy COD4 and/or NFS Prostreet. I hate decisions. lol

@zjj If you want a NFS title you'd be aswell getting any of the other titles in the series out of the bargain bin, save some money, same gameplay. CoD4 all the way.

Me < Digital Photo Frame :D LP player for all my old LPs I found up the loft :D The best thing of course was seeing the kids open the gifts that were exactly what they had been wishing for :D:D

A Sony walkman that plays MP3's, Video (MP4 format) and displays photos as well.. Link

** Please note*** If you use the latest #1 DVD Ripper, you can rip your DVD's to small MP4 video files without having to do any conversions of files. use the ZUNE MP4 format when ripping DVD's.

some NY Football Giant clothes and DVD's, which I'm ripping to MP4 for my player. The DVD's, Legends of the fall and Patch Adams.

The highlights:

*A couple fine bottles of bourbon from two of my clients. Can't go wrong with Knob Creek and Maker's Mark. Also received a bottle of Johnny Walker Green from another client.

*The Bourne movie collection from my brother in law

*From my brother a wonderful offset serrated Shun bread knife and a new block to put all my Shun knives in (I started a collection of good kitchen knives a couple years ago)

*A gift card to Barnes & Noble from the mother in law

*Some (more) Chip McCormick 1911 magazines and a set of custom AlumaGrips courtesy the wife. Still waiting for the grips to show up, though... :(

:santa:

SInce the engine went in my car I spent Christmas watching the kids open their presents. My wife spends way too much on the kids so I just went without this year.

Hey papa, I'm interested to hear how you converted your dvd's to MP4's. We bought my stepdaughter the 30 gig zune for $80 and I have been messing around with a few conversion programs to put full dvd's on the zune but nothing has worked. Any suggestions?

buy #1 DVD ripper. in the main interface, at the bottom you can change the output type for "zune video MPEG4(MP4)", where it says " output profile". there's a long list of formats but, "Zune video MPEG4(MP4)" is listed. then you won't have to worry about converting anything, when a movie is ripped it's ready to play! :thumbsup:

see a link of the main interface :Here

download it: Here

just rip your DVD and transfer it straight to your daughters Zune..

I got an XGO Flame Resistant Foliage t-shirt, 5.11 Tac ACU Tan Loose T-shirt, socks for hiking, Halloween Unrated on DVD, 3 war/military books, a barnes and noble gift card, pajama pants, a pic of my nephew, a DCU hoodie, and Mountain House Freezer Dried food packs for when I hike/camp. My faves were probably the pic of my nephew, the XGO shirt and the Barnes and Noble gift card. Already spent most of the gift card on a book by Dick Couch called Chosen Soldier about Army SF's Q-Course.

A lot of nicknacks (socks, shirts, phone, etc...), but the one that I am enjoying the most is the one I bought.

2X-12X IOR scope. Very compact, it only measure 11". I was looking at a Schmidt Bender until I found that it measured over 14" and it only goes out to 10X. :wacko: No thanks.

Here is a pic of the ret.

I have not mounted it yet since my rifle is not ready as of this moment.

I also got an A.R.M.S. quick detach mount for my 1.5X-8X scope.
