I'm an EE, so that's okay too. Well, retired project manager now.

I'm sorry to say that I don't have much that way. I don't spend my time browsing for geeky valentines -- I just waste my time here

Not true! You'd be amazed at how stupid I act sometimes. My suitemates make fun of me all the time.

Before "electronic" valentines existed, I once gave one to a girlfriend. I painted a breadboard white and arranged red LED's in a heart shape on it. These were wired to a simple timer circuit on the back of the breadboard that lit up the LED's in a circular pattern when she turned it on. Enclosed circuit + batteries in another white painted enclosure, added switch. Probably cost less than a card and chocolate, too.
