Last week I replaced the EPOS system in our social club which left me with three touch-screen tills (running Windows) looking for a role in life.

We have a problem with radio reception in the building and can usually only get one station on FM so the staff tend to use one of the Sky TV boxes to play a music channel though the sound system. But this falls apart if both Sky boxes are needed to show TV.

We already had an Ipod on the back bar also wired into the sound system.

So, I ran an ethernet cable from the router, through the ceiling to this point. Connected up the internet and the audio to the till and have a simple Winforms app which has 20 buttons, each with a radio station logo on the touch screen - along with a volume slider and mute/unmute button.

Just plugged it all in at lunchtime and it flew first time. The staff seem to like it ...

So, who can come up with a sillier idea than using a till (I think it cost around £1,000 when new) as a radio (worth a tenner)?
