What is the implement that without which, your life would be a little darker?

Mine is my PDA - its an MP3/4 player, PC (and therefore radio, net link...), TV, Diary organiser wedding anniversary and birthday reminderer, camera etc etc.

In fact, without it, I think that I would have real trouble keeping organised!

My second favourite gadget is my corkscrew.......

Cheers!

Well, I was going to put "not including you computer" but as mine was a PC oriented thing I left it out.

OK, so excluding PC's then?

Er, actually that's tough........

Hello everybody, I'm paul, a new guy come from the mainland of China. I find this is a very interesting place where people can obtain much useful knowledge.
Well, I think the one which I couldn't do without is my mobile, though a very old style one. 'cos I can write down everything I'll do in the next fews days and it can help me do them one by one. It's a responsible friend, I think, LOL!!

Please permit me to show my thanks to you all, dentstudent, Karen W. and other friends. I just find that there's 6 hrs time difference between you and me:). I'm in Singapore now and will stay here for about half a year. I hope that I would have opportunity to take a journey in UK and other European counties. My English's not so good, so please tell me if there's any misuse. Thanks in advance.
 
Welcome everybody to China, and hope we can be good friends in future!

Thank you very much. My Chinese name is Jinlong ("Jin" means gold, "long" means dragon), it should be 金龙 in Chinese, haha. But I don't know if it can be displayed correctly.

My Sony Ericsson P900




I use it a lot, I take notes down so I can write about things later, I can play chess or listen to a bit of music, it makes getting online a little easier, although a little more expensive ;) I can even send text, pics and phone people with it ;)

Boy have I been there.. I had to turn the gas off for my stove as something was leaking! I don't know what! I bought a new gas valve which means I need to try to change it but can't break the fitting loose. Whoever put it on put it on so tightly I will never be able to get it off.. and you know what that means And I am not eager to make that call again... LOL.. But I will as I need help! I wonder if pg&e will come do it!
