    I think it is an LED flashlight.
    As for the thing in the pictures, yep I have one somewhere around here… Lots of fun memories.

    Ah, those things are a little before my time 🙂

  6. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi Kevin,

    Mike guessed your answer correct, it is indeed a small LED flashlight. Sorry there is no prize for that. 😉
    I too have some fond memories of this board in use.

    *** *** of the *** mainboard etc.

    Anyway, this contest is far too easy.

  8. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi Default,

    You found the one hint that I left for the eagle eyed person. I left that there on purpose but I removed some details in your comment that would make it even easier to guess.

    I didn’t think this one was as easy as it seems to be…

    Look out for next weekend, it will be much harder. 🙂

  9. Giannis Says:

    You missed to erase a spot where it gives exactly the answer… 😀 (But it was obvious anyway…) 🙂
