Well, one place Livejournal outstrips Smugbook and Twatter is getting meaningful advice from people. It also may result in unmeaningful advice too, but then I'll take that as well.
My pocket point and shoot camera is old and eats batteries. I'd like to buy a new one with out spending so much I could have just brought professional prints wherever I go. Anyone got any advice on good, bad or indifferent makes and models of small compact cameras. I tend to take short distance shots and know whatever I get won't cut it for big sky scenery. Which is a shame as there's some gorgeous views around, but I'm not going to carry a big SLR style with me everyday.
Not on advice at all, I am now safely into my own apartment, mostly unpacked and life there is wonderful and relaxed. The change seems to have done me some good.
