Money

I really really *really* want some Canon lenses, so the topic of this post is money. [Canon lenses are a synonym for expensive things].

On the Arcator site mentioned in the post below (permalink), I've added a 'Donate' button which, when clicked, donates money to my dad's paypal account. OK, I'll rewind a bit:

has a stereo external mic input;
18 megapixels;

awesome;
etc.;

I hope you can see from this lis(...)
