Greg’s Wishlist

For those lovely people (ok, so mostly family :P) who wish to buy me something, this is my current list of wants

General Notes

  • Tech
    • Generally, don’t. Odds are I already have it, looked at it and didn’t like it, or want it but it doesn’t work with Linux. Ping me if you’ve got something in mind.
  • Drink
    • I don’t do alcohol. Alcohol is going to gather dust, or be used for cooking :)
    • Coffee is wasted on me, my tastebuds can’t differentiate it
    • Tea is A++
    • “Interesting” non-alcoholics are worth a go, e.g. I am currently drinking a crate of Kitty’s Ginger
  • Food
    • Not cheese
    • Love good bread
    • Most other things are good :)

Books / Films / Media

Physical Games

  • Generally cant fail with Fantasy Flight Games, but check if I have something already :P
  • Board Game - Three Kingdoms Redux (very highly rated strategy game for exactly 3 players)

Kitchen

About to buy a big new oven & induction hob, so kitchenware is good. Induction hobs are fussy - pans need to be steel/iron and flat-bottomed, not the dimpled aluminium you see in some. Think I’m OK on spoons/tongs/etc/. Other cookware like braising dishes etc (Le Creuset is good) that are able to go wholely into the oven would be good.

Camping

Mostly kitted out for big stuff. Yeti make nice things. Space/weight-saving tooling is often cool if not too gimmicky.

Hobbies

  • Walking: Mostly kitted but maps/books/etc are rarely wasted even if it takes a while to get to them
  • 3d Printing: Not sure if there’s much to add here, it’s a technical hobby. But if you have ideas, ask me :)

Clothing

Just don’t. It’s a minefield, and I have 146238564 T-shirts already.
