Such a deal!
I got a really good price on my digital camera some time ago, and was quite pleased at the quality I got for the price I paid.
Well, as they say, there's no free lunch (and how long before *that* saying's going to bite me in the ass when it's quote-mined as supporting Dembski's pseudo-math?)--it burns through batteries like a bastard! I used 8 just at the zoo yesterday alone.
Mom and Dad bought me a 16-pack of AAs Monday; I've already used up all but two of them (granted, it was over 1000 photos, but still...). Fortunately, Dad can recharge and re-use them, so they aren't just going straight into the landfill.
