magus:
LOTS OF GOOD ONES!

Subbed    SATIN [not the fabric, oddly]
Where It.'s at   EUR [Italy is in Europe]
Choice from a list    WINE [I thought computers]
Turkey tender    LIRAS [that's money (tender) in Turkey]
Tots' pops    DADA [not the artist]
Ali's pair of socks?    ONETWO [punch combination]
Brings back on board    REHIRES [I was thinking ships]
Diamond theft?    STEAL [baseball ploy]
Self starter?    HER [not the familiar "towel word"]

Is GETON correct for "Tease"?  The Brits say "have on."  I'd go with "Rib."

"Obsolescent data holder" for FLOPPY doesn't seem right --- unless "floppy" by itself means "floppy disc."  I'd go with "Disc sort."
