    My brother and I got my dad a TED* last Christmas, and a kill a watt this Christmas. Another cool thing we just got him is an energy strip that automatically shuts off when it detects nothing is actually on (based on adjustable current load).

    Automated build testing the Apache projects use.

    As far for Bug tracking, if you’re using version control on your source, I find just using TODO:: and FIXME:: in eclipse allows all the programmers to keep track of what needs fixed, and updated. (If you don’t know, Eclipse keeps a dialog of all the TODO and FIXME tags you put in your comments).
