These are some things I want that you can give to me. My birthday is less than a year away.
The items are arranged roughly in order of my desire for them, with things I want more at the top.
Don't get me anything not on this list unless you know what you're doing! As Henry David Thoreau said, “A lady once offered me a mat, but as I had no room to spare within the house, nor time to spare within or without to shake it, I declined it, preferring to wipe my feet on the sod before my door. It is best to avoid the beginnings of evil.”
If you want to do something nice but you don't know what to get me then please give money to the Free Software Foundation, Electronic Frontier Foundation, or Wikipedia.
