Advent Calendar Ideas Needed for Geeky Adult Male.

My husband is a big fan of Christmas so I would like to do him up an Advent calender to count down the days. I have the actual calender idea sorted, I am going to wrap each present in tissue paper and number them and hang them from a decorated branch that we hang our Christmas cards we get on. I am looking for smallish reasonably priced present ideas, say no bigger than say a paperback and around a few dollars for each present. He is a typical Geek guy, programmer by trade and loves his computer games, table top games and dungeons and dragons. I have thought of getting a pound of assorted dice from Amazon so he could have a few bundles of mixed dice, gaming themed mints and a few of his favourite candies, some bones figurines for different games but that gets me no where near 24 presents. So basically silly, fun, geeky, smallish, cheap things a guy would like, he's parents will be seeing the gifts so I'd like to avoid sexy things or "coupons for hugs" type things. Any and all ideas appreciated.

USA under new management in 58, 57, 56...days

I want to make or buy an advent calendar that leads up to Barak Obama's inauguration day. Assuming there are no such calendars to be purchased, what sorts of trinkets and candy should I use to fill the compartments. I think the date range will be from Christmas day to the inauguration so I can give them as Christmas gifts to my lefty friends. (I was inspired by this question)
