I know I've talked about this before, but that's ok. It's my ice cream machine, and I'll put in whatever flavor I want.

Flipping through the morning's ads, I'm seeing point'n'shoot digital cameras on sale (big graduation present, of course). $240 for 18MP, 10x optical zoom... others with WiFi built in so you can go straight to storage/shares.

Fifteen years does amazing things in technology, that's all. I'm still remembering my battery-sucking QuickTake200.

I wonder if this is how my great-grandmother saw the evolution of flight; she met the Wright brothers on one of their early test-flights when they made an unscheduled landing in a field near the school she taught at. Sixty years later trans- and inter-continental flight had become common.

I used a Nikon Coolpix 990 (circa '00) up until the Luckygunner shoot last year.

It was a hand-me-down from Oleg, so it has sentimental value. :)
