I've been a great fan of Rubik type puzzles, since I got an original rubiks cube for my 14th birthday, in 1980.
Lost interest though for some years, and gave my beloved puzzles away to my dads workmate, for his kids.
Got into collecting in a big way, after finding a Rubiks Mate in our local charity shop going for a quid ! and have picked up various bargains, at dozens of charity shops, boosting my collection with the odd ebay auction or 50 ( under my pseudonym Pomperberry).
have just today acquired a 10 billion master barrel on ebay, and am waiting to get a diamond skewb, for believe it or not, my 37th birthday from my parents :)
I have an understanding but baffled husband, who can't even solve the 3 x 3 rubiks , and already 2 display cases full of puzzles, which I have solved mostly, but they mysteriously end up mixed up again. I suspect my husband, but can't prove it.

would love to get some of the more unusual puzzles, and still dream of owning one day, a dogic, a rubiks domino,a rubiks rabbit, and an octahedron. have tried and missed several ebay auctions for these, but will keep hoping.
great that there is such an active community around this brilliant hobby.
cheers
