Things I wish I had, Part 1

Okay, after the untimely demise of a power supply unit in my desktop and my brand-new coffee maker from Starbucks (that I smuggled inside a shipping container), the number one must have item is a 220V/110V power transformer.  They conveniently don’t mention that it’s merely an adapter to fit the plug into the Euro-style port, not to convert the power to something fit for US appliances.  As I found out with a “bang” from my desktop’s power supply unit and a “pop” from my coffee maker.   That’s why I’m glad the coffee maker came with a three-year warranty.
