Yay for online auctions! I can watch my parents buying things for my birthday next week...
My B-Day Present!
Anyway, I checked out some sites talking about the camera, and the biggest complaint is the short battery life with it. 4 AAs seem to last about 40 pictures.
I think I can handle that for a camera that shoots at 1.3 megapixels, comes with a USB smartcard reader and an 8 MB card. woohoo!

Can't wait for my new toy!
