I'm in London with a 13 year old in early December. Wondering where to go for a good holiday market, especially any with a European feel, dates are Dec. 1 - 6. We do have a Sunday free, do you have a recommendation for an advent service?
I'm looking for a great pre-filled advent calendar that I can order online. Ideally under $30, and I want a surprise variety of things! [more inside]

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.

Can you help me make my webcam work? I today bought an Advent webcam, but I can't get the stupid CD that came with it to work. It doesn't help that I am really not good with computers. Is there somewhere I can download the driver? [more inside]

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)
Please help me find a cool pre-filled advent calendar to share with my husband. [more inside]
