    Just buy a new one ... There is no point in pretending you don't want to.
    I bought one :)

    I took a funny turn for a moment when I thought Brian had enough cameras. Of course he needs to buy a new one! :)

    @Hamish Gill - You gave me access to the blog, but when I looked at it now I couldn't see how to start a blog entry, no "Create new blog post" button. How do I do it? And can I write it over a few days, only "publishing" it when ready?

    OK. I've put a little text in, and have saved Draft. I will be writing it properly over the next few days, before submitting for review.

    I can't place jpgs between the text. I'm very familiar with WordPress editing. I couldn't see an Add Media button, so just dragged a jpg into the editing window. That opened up the Insert Media window, but gave a red Error sign, no matter which jpg I tried to include.
    Advice?

    Sorry Rob, you should have the add media button now

    Thanks, Hamish. We'll get there eventually! :) Just back with another 36 images. Actually, 40 in all, from one role. That's my record. How does this happen?? XP2 again.

    40, that is good! Have you never noticed that a lot of cameras start at -2...

    Same reason disposable cameras are 27 shots not 24

    Shame. I bet that 41st shot would have been a belter! ;)

    No, Hamish, I never knew that. Interesting.

    Pete, that 41st shot have been me looking at it quizzically, thinking, "How do I switch this off?"...

    @Hamish Gill - clarification of the rules, please. Are we allowed to lighten or darken photos we get from a 1-hr service? This new batch of mine are mostly overexposed. If I were printing them I would make a series of exposure strips before choosing the right one. Seems only fair to all that to be done digitally? Or not?
