    Never make the same mistake twice, there are so many new ones, try a different one each day

    $100 gift voucher towards your next spend?

    I always have the same problem with my family because I always buy what I want / need well before any christmas or birthday, they learnt to give up as soon as I started working

    I should have also added that I am always a fan of cash - I have a number of purchases I would like to make (flash wave gear and lenses etc) and cash will help with the gear aquisition.

    I agree they do seem a bit lazy but I hate seeing family or friends buying me something just for the sake of buying an actual gift at christmas, I think it's the worse outcome.

    I bought some USB Keys (16Gig) which look like a tiny Nikon DSLR, but are made from rubber.
    The lens is the actual USB key.
    They were around $20 each from memory from Top Buy.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    How about a tattoo of William Webb-Ellis on your ar...? You've probably already got one. Is this going to be like Monty Pythons Holy Grail?
