Unboxing Day

Today is Boxing Day in much of the British Commonwealth, but for many others it's Unboxing Day: When you finally start to set up, plug in and use all the gadgets that were unwrapped yesterday. It's the modern-day equivalent of putting together a new bike, with less chance for physical injury but perhaps a greater chance for psychic wounds.

(Unless, that is, you're lucky enough to receive the setup work as part of the original gift. That's been part of the deal whenever I've helped get a family member a new computer -- it's not like I couldn't offer that help, given my line of work.)

So how is all that going? What kind of electronic stuff did you get or give? Did you have any issues setting it up? Have you had to call tech support yet? Let everybody know in the comments.
