Isn't it?

Originally, I wanted something like this and hack it to connect it to my computer, somehow. I don't know what I'll make it do yet, but we always talk of "blowing up code" and "exploding programs" and such, there just has to be something fun to do with it!

The other thing I'm still looking for is an actual bell (as in, not a sound effect, but a real physical bell) that can be triggered by my computer. Preferably, it would have that nice "ding!" that mechanical toaster ovens make when they're done, and I'd have it hooked to ring when compiling my programs would be done: "ding! your program is ready!" :-)

Be careful of exploding kittens :(

should one assume you shall be on the island of Montréal ...or in the land of the canucks for your big 3-oh?

I don't have things set in concrete yet (it depends on the moving schedule), but it's looking like I'll be in Montreal, yes.

Well, since I'm not registered (and I'll be low on cash and without a job anyway), I'm not going to go this year either. Boo!

You are a geek.

No, do not try to deny it. You are a geek. Just sit there and revel in your geek-ness, for you are indeed a geek.

I will not be happy and fulfilled until I have one of those.

Well, I might not wait for that to be happy. But it'd be nice. :-)

Also, after some research, it looks like the button might not actually do anything interesting (some sound effect or whatever), not actually able to trigger anything on the computer. Boo.
