* Resting my head (cheekbone) on the side of the case or the chassis
to differentiate between various types of system vibrations. You
really CAN hear a much wider range of sound through bone conduction.
My wife always looks at me like I'm insane... to be fair, it -does-
look like either like I'm praying, if I close my eyes, or else giving
the system a hug.

* Breaking a CD in half to look inside a small enclosed space (between
two cards in a production system, usually) when a dental mirror isn't

* Using a screwdriver to short the reset jumper
