Wedding presents

How to make sure that the toaster you buy will be the one they want to keep. Check out these innovative products.


This toaster ejects the finished product to your plate. You can set the force and angle of ejection.

This is the perfect bread slicing gadget. You set the desired thickness and then all slices will be equal.

Hat tip to Gizmodo

The products are made by Ivovos

So there I was adding a little something to a web site I'm working on when .... "Error: blah blah blah.... contact your system administrator."

Right then I knew I was in trouble. I am the system administrator. The buck looked around nervously for somewhere to run but as the Captain wasn't there it just froze and I had to fix it myself.
