Beloved British nerd comedy The IT Crowd is at long last coming back for its finale special. Creator Graham Lineham announced at a conference in Germany yesterday that this 40-minute episode — which he’s been talking about for years — will start shooting in a few weeks.

Remember, if you have an emergency, go ahead and call 0-118-999-88-199-9119-725 … 3.

This simple but useful concept is not yet available, however. Its creator, Dustin Orndorff from Winchester (VA), has hit the pages of Kickstarter to bring his idea to market.

This is a $90 glowing coin slot belt buckle by Insignificant Fish Industries. “This Belt buckle is made from genuine recycled arcade parts that died in the line of duty and have been preserved as a wearable homage to their place in Silicon Heaven. With the light turned on, it looks exactly like the big arcade machines from whence it came.”
Okay, if I can’t get the belt buckle I posted yesterday, maybe this one…
