The surreal feeling that comes over a real hacker when he or she finds something new to tinker or play with. Especially applies to technology, but can also be directed towards other things such as cars or bikes or skateboards. Anything that has a million and one interchangable parts that require a little technical knowledge to understand, but a lot of technical knowledge to fully exploit. After the initial onset of the need for a new toy, one of two things will happen. The object in question might lose its appeal and be supplanted by something else or the object will become a permanent fixture of that hacker's life for atleast a few weeks.
