My girl won a camera and printer setup in a prize draw (lucky!).
It was on the side when I got up in the morning, "who's that for?" says I.
"oh, I won it in a contest" says she.
"oh did I?" I exclaimed with great excitement, "I've never won a camera before!"
"you didn't", she says.
"oh :-( ", I say and sneakily move the box to somewhere else.
I couldn't wait to open it and play around with the printer, the packaging was good and I took all the pieces out and was going to fiddle with it straight away but instead, I put the pieces in their myriad plastic covers back in the box and went and delivered some leaflets only to run back because I was expecting a delivery of Christmas Presents for my friends.
When I went back and started to put the pieces of the printer together I realised that there was a plastic piece missing! A see-through moulded shape that fits on top of the printer that's supposed to hold the camera snugly, the camera still fit's on although it is a little wobbly.
I haven't had much chance to use it yet, I took a couple of pictures but mostly I spent my time looking for a piece of plastic which I could have sworn was in the box when I started, I even checked the rubbish bin to see if I had thrown it away. poo.
Next time I get something through the post, I'll wait until I'm properly awake before I unpack it!
At least I have a reasonably sized resolution camera, now I can take a picture for my show and tell on Charles's Blog, it wont be long before my shuttle-x and my white cat get shot (photographically speaking) and put up here!
When I get some more play time with my Kodak camera and printer I'll put a more detailed review up here.
I spent the whole night with my head deep in php, I've been adding buttons and changing the layout of my lotto blog. I learnt how to query mysql, use WordPress template tags and why curly brackets are sooo different to normal ones :)
I should really let camtasia record what happens when I get in the geek zone, I have a 1280x1024 screen with a double height task bar full of buttons, photoshop, dreamweaver, firefox, bitcomet, bnbt easytracker, msgtag, googletalk, trillian, outlook and what can only be described as a mosaic of systray icons and I use them all!!
In fact, I will do it. I'll do a recording of my next lottery results post. That takes a few different copy and pastes to different apps!
