For the next few weeks I will be slinging out suggestions of stuff to get that hard to buy for Geek or Dork in your life. First up is a great dvd called “The Digital Fireplace”.
Fire building is made simple with this great dvd collection. No cheesy music, just the sounds of wood popping and crackling. This DVD has four different loops to choose from: Roaring Fire, Romantic Fire, Smoldering Embers, and a lame loop that loops all of the content. There is just something soothing, even though it lacks the smell of wood burning, about having soft music play and your living room lit with the flicker of virtual flames.
So if you live in the city and would like to roast your chestnuts over an open fire, buy a hotplate and put it on top of your tv while you relax to your high res virtual fire.
