New Camera - update

Man what a debacle this is turning out to be. The seller initially wouldn't accept my paypal payment because I was using a credit card and paypal charges the seller a fee to accept credit card payments. I don't see where that's my problem. That finally got resolved though.

I had to send several messages asking for the tracking number on the package. When I finally got the tracking number it was wrong. All signs are pointing to me getting screwed in this deal so far. I finally get the correct tracking number the night that the package ends up on my doorstep.

What's inside the box? Well, it has most everything. Just no battery, or compact flash card. I wouldn't mind so much about the compact flash card but it was listed as part of the auction so I was expecting it to be there. You know, something like getting what you paid for or what was advertised. But, no battery? How the hell are you suppose to use a digital camera with no battery? Beats the hell out of me.

So, I've sent a couple more messages to the seller indicating that there were missing items. I'm still waiting for a reply. My next step will be to work the issue through paypal for resolution.

grrr.

New Camera

I recently won an auction for a used Canon S400 camera on eBay. I can't wait to get it and take some pictures with it. I've been wanting to get a smaller camera to carry around with me that isn't as bulky as the D100. I also didn't want to spend a lot of money on one so that's where eBay comes in handy.

I did some searching and while looking for a used Sony DSC-U30 I found the Canon for sale. I was really surprised at what people were asking for the Sony cameras. Those things are fixed focus and low mega pixels but maybe they have a following of people like me that want a small camera.

Anyway, I hope it will arrive this week so I can start snapping off some pictures of random stuff. Have a great week.

Upgraded Movabletype

I upgraded Movabletype from 3.2 to 3.32 as you may or may not have noticed. Things were broken for a while but everything is better now. Enjoy!

Take me out to the ball game...

My wife and I recently went to Boston for a 1 day trip to see a Red Sox game at Fenway park. What a blast. We even stayed at the Hotel Commonwealth which is close enough you could throw a rock at the stadium from our room.
